When Megan and Nick got in touch with me about their Brookside Gardens engagement shoot, we chatted about all the fun things we could do – I was really excited. I was especially excited when I learned that Megan has two adorable little ones! We love working with and photographing blended families (couples in which one or both partners have children from a previous relationship). Megan was telling me that even though her kiddos are two years apart, they have the same birthday! Isn’t that wild?!
We spent their session exploring the grounds, which is perfect for photos year-round, because it has great backdrops and the light is so good – as well as checking out the gazebo, and the lake because it’s so darn pretty. We also did some fun silhouette photos, which was so much fun. We then finished up with a walk back to the car, which was a great way to finish the session.
The weather was perfect for a Brookside Gardens engagement shoot. The sun was out, and it wasn’t too cold. Perfect for taking a stroll through the park with the family! The couple looked fabulous for the shoot, with Megan wearing a very pretty red dress, and Nick rocked a chunky knit sweater.
Megan and Nick also can claim the honor of being Prismatic’s first pandemic romance! Nick works as a high school math teacher, while Megan is an English tutor. They met online at the beginning of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and got engaged towards the end of the same year. Isn’t that romantic? ? It’s nice to know that even during these challenging times, folks are still finding love and connection. The lovebirds are getting married later this year at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist church, and we can’t wait to shoot their wedding!
Prismatic Engagement Shoots
Your engagement shoot can take place anywhere you want – or I can suggest great places depending on what you love. Your session can be anything from riding bikes, to a farm visit. My engagement shoots are very romantic, and a great opportunity to get some photos for your wedding announcement.
