This picture was taken at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.
Alena and Yury had a lovely and intimate wedding ceremony in the Lehigh Valley, PA before heading to Longwood Gardens for some portraits together.
I always ask my couples where they would like to have their pictures taken on their wedding day. I want to incorporate those environments around them for their portraits. Alena and Yury had a lot of favorite locations and among them was the floral walkway and small fountain area of the gardens.
This, among many other locations at Longwood Garden, can be difficult to take pictures at because of the amount of people exploring the park. However, with a little patience and the proper lens choice, beautiful portraits can be taken without any people walking around in the background. I highly recommend going there for your engagement session on a Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday when the park is not so crowded.
