Chris & Joanna | Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Session | Lake Wales Engagement Photographer

June 7, 2017

I had the most wonderful time shooting this Bok Tower Engagement Session over in Lake Wales with Joanna & Chris! We carved time out of our Friday afternoon to explore all that Bok Tower Gardens has to offer- while battling Florida’s 97 degree weather! Because we went on a Friday we had the entire park to ourselves which we explored up and down lol! The flowers were in bloom and everything was absolutely gorgeous and lush! These two showed up with their walls up as being in front of the camera was totally out of their comfort zone! I think we did an amazing job breaking down those walls! This session ended up being one of my favorite’s with so many amazing moments captured! The interaction between Joanna and Chris was amazing and once they loosened up the magic started to happen!

From their first inquiry on The Knot I knew we were going to hit it off! I don’t know if its the fact that we are all Cowboys fans or the fact that they have been so involved in the entire planning process with equal excitement but everything went so smooth and it was such a relaxed shoot! Super stoked for their wedding in April 2018 at the gorgeous Florida venue Lakehouse Lake Nona!!


Love the happiness radiating from these images <3 <3

These are all so bright and beautiful! I love Bok Towers!

Love your work!! Some amazing Florida nature and a beautiful couple!! Gorgeous, Kelly!

I absolutely love their outfits! Every single one of these is stunning but the composition of that super wide shot with them sitting on the long stone bench is literally what dreams are made of. Perfect in every single way! I can’t wait to see the photos you create at their wedding!

Feels so fresh, love that wide shot near the wall!

They look so happy! You captured their love so perfectly. <3

First of all I need to know where she got that dress from because its beautiful! I am such a sucker for Book towers and babe you rocked it!

I’ve been dying to visit the Bok Tower Gardens — now I HAVE to! This engagement session is gorgeous, and her dress is just so beautiful. Love that you can feel their connection through photos. Lovely work! <3
