Summertime engagement sessions are so fun, and the Shinzen Japanese Gardens are right here in our Fresno backyard!

Ben and Katie are recently engaged, and Katie is so on top of planning! They had their venue booked the week after their engagement, and then they booked their photographer. We got right down to business with some gorgeous photos for their engagement session. Shinzen Japanese Gardens at Woodward Park in Fresno was the perfect location for this summer evening engagement session. I am always blown away by the beauty of this park, but it’s even more amazing when I’m capturing a couple THIS in love!

I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next year and capture more of their love. These two…they’ve got it all! Also, Katie is an event planner so you can imagine that their wedding is going to be simply beautiful!

What did I tell you, huh?

How stunning is that last image on the bridge? So beautiful. Sunset engagement sessions are a dream, and I am so lucky to have such amazing couples to photograph and create these beautiful images. Congrats Katie & Ben! I cannot WAIT to be your wedding photographer.

Japanese Gardens Engagement Session | Ben + Katie

Dutton Ranch Inspired is literally the way I would describe this engagement session with Joseph & Rachel! As much as I love shooting at my usual locations and creating unique photos for our clients, it’s especially fun when we get to explore private ranches and spaces for a session. It offers a level of uniqueness […]
