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!
