Jacob L. Loose Park
Jacob L. Loose Park is the 3rd largest park we have here in Kansas City, Missouri. The park is located at 5200 Wornall Rd, Kansas City, MO 64112, and is home to Kansas City’s famous municipal rose garden. Hosting many wedding, senior photoshoots, and family pictures, this park is always busy!
Union Station, located at 30 W Pershing Rd, Kansas City, MO 64108, is a grand, historic train station with permanent & temporary exhibits, a planetarium, and a science center. This is a great place to capture some lovely photos. Warning: at certain points you may need a photography permit.
National WWI Museum
The National World War I Museum is not only a great learning opportunity, but also a fun location to snap some cool photos of the Kansas City skyline, or nice shots with friends. Warning: do NOT sit on the ledge if you do not want a security guard yelling at you over the speakers.
The West Bottoms is by far my favorite place to take photos. The West Bottoms is an industrial area immediately to the west of downtown Kansas City, Missouri, at the confluence of the Missouri River and the Kansas River. This area is one of the oldest areas of the city, making it a perfect spot to conduct all types of photo shoots. It’s no surprise to see several photographers in the area doing engagement photos, senior pictures, or even searching for the perfect Instagram worthy background.
Burr Oak Woods
Burr Oak Woods, located at 1401 NW Park Rd, Blue Springs, MO 64015, is a “natural preserve of forest, native grass, prairie & ponds, attracting birders, hikers, hunters,” and most importantly, photographers. This location is great for those who want to capture beautiful nature shots.
