#InstaKC Captures is a blog series that highlights some of the most photogenic sights in Kansas City. From iconic monuments to lesser known gems, we tour the city in search of some of the best places to take a snapshot.
This week, we spent time at Union Station, one of Kansas City's many architectural monuments, and an icon full of seasonal spirit and holiday decor.
Natural Light, Great Shots
Not one to be outdone by its neighbors, Union Station is well-known and well-loved for its holiday decorations. See: the giant Christmas tree that greets all visitors who enter through the old train depot's doors.
With massive windows comes flooding natural light. The time of day truly decides how your photos turn out, both thanks to the sun and to the lights that illuminate the evening.
Grand Hall Grandeur
Wander through the Grand Hall during December to discover why so many fall in love with this building's design.
Look up and you'll find ceilings 95 feet high, as well as three 3,500-pound chandeliers and a six-foot-wide clock hanging in the central arch. It's a scene worth capturing.
As one can probably imagine, Union Station's holiday decor is a winter wonderland for children and adults alike.
