As my years as a Pennsylvania Wedding photographer, I can let you know this one thing. Your engagement session location can play a huge role in setting the tone for your engagement photos. These engagement photos are more than just snippets you share on social media. They can be used for save-the-dates and even decor on your actual wedding day. So as much as you may want to just “wing it” when it comes to your engagement photos, think again! You want your engagement session to be a true representation of your story and experience being a fiancé. In the case of Johana and Josh their PA engagement photos at Longwood Gardens were exactly what we needed to set the stage for their engagement celebration.
The lush greenery and vibrant florals surrounding us made this Longwood Gardens engagement a magical and romantic one.
Longwood Gardens is one of my most highly requested and sought-after PA engagement photo locations. One because it’s absolutely stunning and well… do you really need any more reason than that? Longwood Gardens provides the perfect elegant backdrop for your PA engagement photos. The main attraction of Longwood Gardens is obviously the wide variety of flora, greenery, and trees throughout the property. I highly recommend looking at their seasonal chart to determine when flowers are in bloom. Trust me, this will make your life a whole lot easier especially if you want a certain look to your engagement photos.
For Johana and Josh’s PA engagement photos at Longwood Gardens, we really wanted to stick to a very romantic and soft look. This starts with their first set of outfits where Johana wore this breathtaking neutral blush dress. Josh paired perfectly with a neutral taupe color palette that made for a perfectly cohesive pair. We were able to wander the grounds of Longwood Gardens and soak up that divine weather. Shortly after, Johana and Josh were to embark on their second outfit change into something a bit more formal. Johana in a flowing white dress while Josh stuck with a more gray-taupe theme. Together they conquered their PA engagement photos by storm and left me absolutely speechless.
Longwood Gardens does allow you to shoot photo/video here without a permit. However, your photoshoot must take place while the Gardens are open to the public. You are also required to purchase a general admissions ticket in order for you to enter. Tickets start at $25 per person.
