Campus photos are always a staple. However, if you’re looking for a change of scenery, celebrate the love you have for KC with skyline pictures at Liberty Memorial, or add a pop of color to pictures with one of the metro’s many murals. Being in the City of Fountains, you can’t go wrong with pictures at Mill Creek Park’s fountain. If you like a rustic + vintage look, opt for pictures in the West Bottoms.
