Chris and Sarah’s Engagement Session at Wilson Park

The weather is finely getting warm again, and that means it’s time for lots of engagement shoots and weddings. Last week I did three engagement sessions, and I’ve got plenty planned for the next few weeks. Today I’m sharing Chris and Sarah’s engagement session at Wilson Park. 

Chris and Sarah’s Engagement Session at Wilson Park

It had been awhile since I had been at Wilson Park and things had changed quite a bit. They had completely removed and updated all of the slides and playground. This doesn’t really affect me or my photography, but what does affect things is the landscape. There used to be a ton of trees growing around the creek, but now the majority of them were gone. Chris pointed out that they were causing the ground to erode, so I guess the city got rid of them to try to stop them and protect the creek. Still, without the trees, the park doesn’t look the same.

We still managed to find plenty of places for photos. There’s a lovely little spot right by the parking lot that has trees and different plant life. Then we used some of the stones near the road. After that we ended up down in the creek. It didn’t look the same without the trees, but it still looked nice.

Chris and Sarah then changed into their second outfit and we did a few more quick spots. We went to the metal bridge and then used one of the few blooming trees in the area. The last thing we did was mess around with getting some dark skies.

This was the first time I met Chris and Sarah, but by the end of the shoot we were all laughing and having a good time. It’s always interesting to learn about people and see their different personalities. It’s one of the things I really enjoy about my job. It was a little sad seeing the park without the trees, but Chris and Sarah’s Engagement Session at Wilson Park was still wonderful.
