Romantic Japanese Friendship Garden Engagement Session | Taylor + Matt | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

Well hello there and happy Thursday!! I have a treat for you on the blog today! It's not often that I get to have sessions with gorgeous greenery like this one! Plus, there's a bonus! These two, Taylor and Matt!

These two really wanted to step away from the desert scenery for their engagement session and try for something a little more green! I'd never heard of the Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix before they recommended it, but now, as you'll see, I'm pretty smitten with the place!

Would it be absolutely cheesy to say I'm pretty smitten with these two as well? This was my first time meeting Matt, and first time seeing Matt and Taylor together! It was so fun seeing these two interact, be playful, and love on each other! It amazes me just how different every single couple loves!

Matt and Taylor met at the hospital they both work at. Matt noticed this beautiful, kind nurse and knew he had to connect with her in some way. He ended up talking with her boss about whether Taylor was single and about connecting her with him. Taylor's boss was on top of it, and not half an hour later, she pulled Taylor aside (scaring Taylor half to death that she was in trouble) and connected the two! It wasn't long before they completely hit it off.

When the time for the proposal came, Matt sneakily worked with Taylor's parents to plan the perfect moment on their Christmas trip to Chicago. It was a family tradition of Taylor's family to take a carriage ride every time they were out there, but at the last minute Taylor's dad got a "work call", had to take it, and couldn't come. Taylor's mom hung back to stay with her dad, so Matt and Taylor hopped on alone and took the carriage ride themselves.  Matt had already had a quick conversation with the driver and told him/her what was happening and to take them on an extra long, more quite route. I'm not 100% sure how it really happened, but I can just imagine the carriage making it's way slowly down a quite street of Chicago, large snowflakes fluttering down all around, and time just stopping for a moment as Matt asked this beautiful girl he was smitten with from almost the moment they met, if she would become his wife.

These two are so darling together (as you'll see!) and I couldn't be more excited to be the one capturing their wedding this fall! Hope you love this little peek into their gorgeous Japanese Friendship Garden engagement session!

Feeding the fish! They were huge!
