Naples Botanical Garden | Engagement

We absolutely love getting to know the couples we serve, and when Sam and Marc reached out to book their wedding, we were thrilled!  Originally from Massachusetts, they are now fully enjoying the beauty that Southwest Florida has to offer year-round.  The two are planning to host their dream wedding day at the breathtaking Naples Botanical Garden, and we can hardly wait until we can celebrate with them alongside their family and friends!  These two met in college through mutual friends, and are absolutely perfect for each other!  They began dating, and Marc surprised Sam by proposing early one morning on a beach in Massachusetts.  Of course she said “Yes,” and the wedding planning began.  

With their big day taking place at the Naples Botanical Garden, Sam and Marc knew it would be an ideal setting for their engagement session as well!  They are members at the Garden, and enjoy spending time exploring the trails together.  One of their favorite things about visiting the Garden is that pets are allowed on certain mornings.  They brought their adorable puppy along for the session, and he did an incredible job!  It was so much fun to capture his sweet smile and spunky personality, and he should seriously win a “most well-behaved puppy” award for his posing skills!  

As we strolled through the gardens together, we paused to capture a few of their favorite places including the Brazilian, Caribbean, Asian, and Water Gardens, as well as Irma’s Garden.  Surrounded by lush and vibrant colors, it couldn’t have been a more gorgeous setting for portraits.  It was an absolute pleasure connecting with these two, and we are beyond excited to photograph their wedding next winter!  We are already counting down the days until we can document the joy and beauty of their big day!
