Longwood Gardens Engagement-GardenLongwood Gardens Engagement.It was a beautiful day to photograph John and Danielle’s engagement. I’m so glad that they decided on Longwood Gardens. It’s among one of our favorite destination to photograph an engagement session. The setting throughout the garden is romantic and to put it simply, beautiful. Couples can enjoy a walk through the grounds as we selectively pick and choose different locations that are aesthetic and pleasing, allowing the couple to look their best. It was definitely a very hot day, but the couple took in stride and they were not affected by the weather at all. What we enjoyed the most was that John and Danielle laughed and enjoyed each other’s company and definitely felt comfortable with us. When a couple get to relax in front of the cameras that is when we begin to capture stunning photos. There were times when they even forgot that they were being photographed. I was able to capture moments where they were totally emerged with each other and their raw emotions were spectacular. I was able to capture the intimacy and every loving gesture. Near the center of the gardens there is a beautiful and secluded area the I enjoy taking couples to. There is a path leading from one section of the garden to another, but what draws your attention is the foliage that surrounds the entry. I was able to incorporate the entry into the photo to balance out the image. The deep green shrubs and beautiful flowers that surrounded this section of the garden added to the beauty of this picture. This picture illustrates a natural looking and loving pose between the couple. How you position a couple and what you ask them to do, will determine the results you will get. I capture most of my candid, documentary-style photos using my 70-200mm lens. Once again, I was able to place the couple in a location where I’m able to incorporate the elements and frame them with the photo, which draws the viewer to the couple. Longwood Gardens located in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania is a spectacular location to photograph an engagement session. Not only are there acres and acres of flowers, there is also a beautiful and historic building nestled within the vast grounds. The grounds are maintained so well all year long and during the summer you'll be able to see the vast amount of flowers and the perfectly trimmed shrubs. In fact some shrubs are sculptured very artistically. During the winter months, Longwood Gardens is still a wonderful place to explore and photograph a couple. They adorn the garden with festive holiday decorations and lights. The photo opportunities are by far many.
