Romantic Golden Hour Engagement Session at Tyler Gardens
Set at the gorgeous grounds of Tyler Gardens, this engagement session captures the beautiful landscape nestled at this venue. Melissa and Ken (and their adorable pup Maizey) are melting our hearts with their undeniable charm. Their lovely proposal story and love have us totally smitten, and if you love pups as much as we do then you’re definately going to fall for their sweet furbaby. Rachel Betson Photography perfectly captured this day during the golden hour, and these photos are shining through to our hearts!
How They Met:
“We met through mutual friends at a bonfire in Upstate NY. We went to the same sigh School but never crossed paths until that night.”
“We love to travel & see new places, we are BIG foodies – we love trying new restaurants and spending time at home together watching movies with our furbaby Maizey.”
Melissa: “There are so many things I love about Ken. I love his sense of humor, there is no one who can make me laugh as much as Kenny. He is the most down to earth guy I know, he is always ready to have fun and he makes the best out of life.”
Kenny: I love how caring, compassionate and loyal Melissa is. I can always count on her to laugh at all my jokes – she has the best smile.
“How did he propose? I surprised Kenny for his Birthday with a trip to Banff, Alberta, Canada. I planned the trip on our anniversary weekend (Labor Day Weekend) and little did I know he had a surprise for me too! On our anniversary, we spent the day hiking and canoeing at Lake Louise. It was beautiful! For dinner, we decided to go a restaurant in Banff called the Sky Bistro. It’s 2,900 ft above Banff. The only way you can get up to the mountaintop was by a Gondola. We were halfway through our ride and Kenny proposed inside the Gondola!”
Engagement Session Inspiration:
“We love being outside! We were going for a romantic, authentic vibe with a garden backdrop. We also love our Golden-doodle Maizey so much, we wanted to include her in our photos too.”
“I am not going to lie, it was definitely pretty stressful at first. A lot of places were already booked for next year when we were looking for our venue. After a few months of searching, we found the perfect venue! After that, everything else has been falling into place and it’s been so much fun! I love it so much!”
Engagement Session Experience:
“Rachel is the best! She is so talented and she made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot. We had a lot of fun working with her! She’s super professional and knew exactly what we wanted our photos to look like. I am so excited for our wedding photos!”
