Beautiful Longwood Gardens Engagement Session

Nov 26, 2021

Beautiful Longwood Gardens Engagement Session

Point blank, Veronica and Marquis stole the show at their beautiful Longwood Gardens engagement session! I am still on cloud nine flipping through these photos we got!

They seriously nailed it!

From the beautiful floral dress that Veronica wore, to the location that they chose, these two knew what they were doing. Their session was at the breathtaking Longwood Gardens. I had not been their in YEARS, so I was so excited when they chose that place for their session. I had been itching to go back from so long!

The reason why is so obvious.

I seriously don’t know a time of year when this place isn’t stunning. We were about 20 minutes into their session and we had barely gone twenty feet. Seriously, everywhere you look is photo worthy! From the last flowers still in bloom, to fall leaves and Christmas lights going up, it is a magical place.

But let me tell you, it is easy to get lost.

The whole session, Veronica, Marquis, and I were cracking up laughing because we only sort of knew where we were going the whole time. Plus, every five steps I would freak out and say, “Oh man, we HAVE to do a photo here.” I set an alarm on my watch for this very reason at ever engagement session. I get so excited with my couples and it one location, that if I don’t set it we might never change or move on!

Longwood gardens is just so beautiful!

At least it kept us all laughing. I actually put blinders around my eyes at one point because we hadn’t made it to the second half of the gardens and we were already half way through the session. I’m telling you, the struggle is real. On top of that, I absolutely loved chatting and getting to know these two. Marquis is absolutely hilarious. Cracking jokes and just so happy.

With the biggest smile I may add.

Paired with Veronica who is just the sweetest person. These two make a perfect duo. I absolutely loved my time with them and was so sad when the sun started going down, and our time came to an end. Trust me, I am so excited for their September 2022 wedding at the Marriott at Penn Square. It is going to be an absolute blast, I can already feel it!

Let the countdown begin.

Marquis and Veronica, thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer. You two are the best! I am so glad I can call you two friends, and I am thrilled to be on this journey with you. Like we joked about at the session, you are stuck with me now ;)! I hope you two love these favorites from your beautiful Longwood Gardens engagement session, as much as I do. It is seriously a lot! A perfect mix of fall and holiday fun! Enjoy!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
