Meadowlark Botanical Gardens Engagement Photos

When we started planning their engagement session, Karen and Justin said they wanted to find someplace magical. Well, it’s safe to say we found it at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens! Not only did they get the perfect light, but it had the perfect mix of greenery and the beginnings of fall. And since they both got all dressed up for the shoot, every single spot we went felt like a fairytale!

Their Proposal

After they had been together for two years, Karen and Justin went to the same place they had their first date. When they were done with dinner, they walked around the waterfront in Georgetown. Earlier that day, Karen received a card from Justin. She received a second card at dinner, and he saved the last one for their waterfront walk. At the bottom, he wrote “Will You Marry Me,” and when she looked down, he was there with the ring! (Which is absolutely GORGEOUS by the way!!)

I loved getting to know these two better at their session, and I can’t wait for their wedding in May. It’s going to be such a fun celebration!

Congratulations, Karen and Justin! Enjoy some of my favorites moments.
