Shaunda + Nate | Fort Wayne Botanical Garden Engagement Session

Shaunda and Nate’s downtown Botanical Garden session was unlike any engagement session I’ve done before and it was such a blast!  Since they knew they wanted to get their engagement photos done fairly quickly so that they could use the photos for their invitations, but it was still fairly cold and bleak in Indiana, they asked if I would be up for doing the session at the Botanical Gardens, to which I happily agreed!

If you’ve never been to the Botanical Gardens, (then first of all, you’re missing out, but) the landscape inside is divided into three sections.  The first is a classic garden with more of the typical plants you might see growing in Indiana during the summertime, the second is a tropical oasis (complete with waterfalls, which you’ll see in these pictures) and the third is a very hot and dry desert (complete with cactus plants and succulents, which you’ll also see!).  I’m very grateful for a venue like the Botanical Gardens in Fort Wayne where it’s possible to capture some colorful and lively photos, even in the dead of winter!  I’m also grateful for couples like Shaunda and Nate that are so flexible and willing to work with the surroundings in order to get some really fun and candid photos!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from this session!
