I’ve been dreaming of photographing a couple in the peony gardens for awhile now! The peonies are really only in full bloom for about a week, so when my brother proposed to Isabel a couple of weeks prior, I knew it would work out perfectly! A big storm with high winds came through Michigan & took down a lot of trees the day before our session was scheduled, I was heartbroken thinking how we would likely drive over an hour to a garden of sad-looking peonies…but boy was I wrong! They were still SO beautiful, and I can hardly believe the garden made it through the storm, but I won’t question it! I was so overjoyed, and it was probably my favorite engagement session location to date! I am so glad I could take my brother and his sweet fiancé Isabel there. Now they can treasure these photos taken in this beautiful garden for years to come. I can’t wait to bring some brides back here next June!
