Botanical Garden Engagement +Wedding | Katelyn + Andy | September 22, 2018
Katelyn + Andy's botanical garden engagement session at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin is finally LIVE on my blog. They drove 3 hours from Iowa to Wisconsin to for their family/ engagement at the gardens over the summer. A botanical garden engagement session was a perfect fit, since Katelyn was planning a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in the gardens at the Dubuque Botanical Gardens.
As I look back on their botanical photo session, the day could not have been better. Their sweet toddler, Marlee, tagged along to smell the flowers and run around the garden. She was SO cute and really enjoyed playing in the beautiful gardens with mom + dad. Watching Marlee run around and smell the flowers took me back to when I was a little girl gardening with my grandma. I had fun playing and photographing Marlee in the garden. I was melting over those big blue eyes of hers! SO adorable!!!!! She had fun with me, too (as you can see she is full of smiles in almost all of her pictures!)
If you haven't been to the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, you really need to go!! Plan a trip and enjoy the blooms, waterfall, butterfly garden and the smell of roses filling the air! Personally, this is my happy place. Being surrounded by plants and flowers, camera in my hand, and sweet clients of mine make me really appreciate my genuine happiness and love for florals + photography. I've always loved flowers and gardening. Even though I can't keep my own plants and flowers alive, I truly appreciate the hard work and time it takes to keep the garden looking so lovely. And I was even happier being in a different state at another botanical garden photographing these three at Katelyn and Andy's wedding in Iowa this past September.
