What a gorgeous evening for Melissa and Zeke’s botanical garden engagement session! When I asked Melissa where she envisioned their session, she said they’re always up for a drive together. With that in mind, I set out to find a beautiful garden location for their session. The Dubuque Botanical Gardens proved to be the perfect place for a romantic engagement session. We strolled through a few of their most noted gardens including the English Garden, Japanese Garden and Rose Garden. You’d never guess that while we photographed their session we listened to a live band performance taking place at the gardens. After their session, we had the chance to discuss details for their upcoming wedding this fall. It was such a fun evening!
Melissa and Zeke, thank you for traveling so far to try a new location with me. It was definitely worth it! Your love for each other is radiant. I loved photographing this session for you and can’t wait to see you again in just a few months!
