This next session may possibly be one of our favorites! If you haven’t realized it yet, Bret and I are obsessed with all things plants and flowers! That’s why we are so very excited to share this next blog! We got to venture to the Western Kentucky Botanical Gardens in Owensboro, Kentucky for Laura and Ryan’s dreamy engagement session and it was just that — A DREAM!

Leading up to the session, Mother Nature gave us a run for our money! Beforehand, the forecast was allllll over the place. The forecast was calling for rain, thunderstorms, cloudiness and then the occasional opportunity for sunlight! We ended up deciding to go for it and we only got rained on a few times. It ended up being the perfect session with the perfect amount of sunlight!

When we arrived at the Botanical Gardens, we were greeted with warm hugs, happy smiles, and the sweetest couple ever. There was so much laughing and catching up to be done because the last time we saw them was a coffee-turned-donut date at Donut Bank in Evansville, Indiana. That coffee date was one of the best, because hellooooo, DONUTS!

Before we dive into this incredible session, can we please just take five hot seconds to talk about their outfit choices?! Literally obsessed with them! Laura and Ryan paired their outfits together so stinking well while still showcasing their personalities! #stylegoals Those two obviously paid attention to our engagement session planning guide which made our little hearts burst! Ahhhh!

We spent the evening exploring the property of the Botanical Gardens and tucking into all the dreamy spots! There were sooooooo many beautiful flowers and even more buds blooming! We were taking in all the sights while Laura and Ryan snuggled against all the flowers! We ended their session by heading into downtown Owensboro. The two of them laughed all the way down the streets of Owensboro as we followed along snapping sweet moments to finish off the night!

Laura and Ryan are so sweet and we are so in love with them! We absolutely cannot wait for their Farmer and Frenchman wedding in Henderson, Kentucky which will be here before we know it!!
