Matthaei Botanical Gardens Engagement session | Ann Arbor wedding photographer

July 5, 2019

Jausmine and Eric’s Matthaei Botanical Gardens Engagement session was nothing short of amazing! From their attire to the location this session was flawless.

While planning for engagement photos Jausmine and I brainstormed locations for a while. She wanted something with large trees, water, and semi-tropical feel. This all sounded amazing but we live in Michigan! Being a Michigan photographer I pride myself on knowing a lot of amazing locations, but this was a tall order.

Choosing a location for your Michigan engagement photos

The only places I could think up were in the UP. Places like Pictured Rocks, or Porcupine Mountain. I tried and tried to think of places outside of these that might yield the results she wanted. Then she asked about a botanical garden. I don’t why I didn’t think of that sooner! I immediately thought of Belle Isle conservatory but it was under construction. A quick google search showed Matthaei Botanical Gardens, this location made for a stunning backdrop for this engagement session.

I am so happy we decided on this space. It had all the amazing request she asked for and then some. We captured the more tropical romantic vibe they were going for and created some stunning images in preparation for their wedding.
