Eric & Mallory: Washington Park Botanical Gardens Engagement Photos

June 4, 2018

Happy Monday friends! We are so excited to be back from a super fun weekend hanging out with family and shooting a darling wedding, and we are even more pumped to be sharing Mallory and Eric’s engagement session with you guys today!

If Mallory and Eric look a tiny bit familiar to you guys, it’s because these two modeled for an engagement shoot at our first ever workshop, The Spark Retreat, back in April! (Come and catch their blog post here!) These two were total pros by the time their official engagement session date rolled around, in case you couldn’t tell. 😉 We met up with these guys at the beautiful Washington Park Botanical Gardens in Springfield this past week, and it was the best! Mallory totally killed it with her outfit choices (that tulle skirt, though… oh my stars, I think I definitely need one!), we managed to dodge the rain that had been pouring BUCKETS on us all day long, and we spent plenty of time talking about the first episode of The Bachelorette this season… so all around, it was one heck of an amazing session! 😉

Mallory and Eric, Luke and I have just loved getting to know you two from day one! You guys have been nothing but a joy to work with so far, and we so appreciate you guys being so supportive of our business and what we do! We are so excited for your November wedding and are counting down the days until then! Maybe one of these days we’ll make it down to Austin to visit you two… but until then, enjoy a sneak peek of some of our MANY faves from your dreamy engagement shoot with us! We are already so excited to share the rest!

Yay! Xoxo!
Caitlin and Luke
