Garden Engagement

Brandie + Orion’s Garden Engagement


Of course, Complete Weddings and Events does wedding photography. However, did you know we also photograph engagement sessions? It’s true, we do! Today we’re showcasing an engagement that we also have the pleasure of looking forward to taking their wedding photos in the future! We loved being able to capture Brandie and Orion’s love on camera at Allerton Park this summer. Check out this dreamy garden engagement session below!

Engagement Session 101

Before you pose for your wedding day with your photographer, you will be spending some time in front of the camera for another very important photo session: the engagement session! There are so many good reasons why you should add on an engagement session. In addition to getting a keepsake, these garden engagement photos will be great for everything wedding-related. This includes invites, your website, and social media. Not to mention, you also learn how to pose for pictures before the wedding day arrives.

Keep in Mind:

  • Keep it Seasonal with accessories, etc.
  • Let your photographer know what you are expecting with the end product.
  • Meaningful location.
  • And take the time to connect with your partner! It is meant to be fun and let loose.

Historia de Amor

We thought it best to add a flare for their story’s title! Their first date was for dinner at Brandie’s favorite Mexican restaurant in Champaign called fiesta cafe. If that wasn’t cute enough afterward they watched live music!

The engagement happened at Homer Lake by the water. It was his grandma’s surprise retirement party. He asked her to take a walk with him. As maybe you can guess, this is the opportunity he took to propose! She had a slight feeling it was going to happen in the near future, however, she was completely surprised that day! There’s a really sweet country song called “I don’t want to be your boyfriend anymore” and that’s the first thing he said when he got down on one knee.
