Knoxville Botanical Gardens Engagement - Cory + Matthew

Knoxville Botanical Gardens is one of our favorite places in town to shoot, so we were thrilled when Cory and Matthew chose to do their engagement photos here. What made this session even better was their decision to incorporate what we’ve dubbed a prosecco picnic, where we captured some of our favorite shots of the couple sharing a drink on a plaid blanket. These two are super playful, and we spent much of our time with them laughing and listening to them tell stories of their first encounters to their blossoming relationship and eventually their decision to  have a brunch wedding (heck yeah...marriage and mimosas) this Spring.

For a different vibe on the same day, we also traveled to downtown Knoxville where the two got cozy rooftop and incorporated some cute props and a wardrobe change. We  encourage our couples to bring multiple looks, usually one dressy and one more casual for engagements, and we often encourage a setting for the engagement that provides a different background or vibe than what they will have on their wedding day. 

We are in love with these candid moments of Cory and Matthew, and we  hope you feel the love as you scroll through this feature as well.
