Dreamy Longwood Christmas Engagement Session

Olivia and Alex had the most dreamy, romantic Longwood Christmas engagement session this winter!! Longwood Gardens goes ~all out~ with its Christmas design & decor. The magical setting enhanced the beautiful love that Olivia and Alex share!

Dreamy Engagement Session

Olivia and Alex are so meant for each other. Olivia couldn’t stop giggling the entire time, and Alex smiled so big whenever he looked at Olivia! Since it was quite chilly and a bit rainy outside, we spent most of our time inside the conservatory. None of us minded – the conservatory is drop-dead gorgeous and has so much variation for photos!! We even discovered some new hidden photo spots as we made our way through the conservatory. All the twinkle lights from the Longwood Christmas decor added to the already romantic feel of the location, and Olivia & Alex’s love shone beautifully through in all the photos.

Olivia told me she wanted some blurry photos to add to the nostalgia and romance of their engagement photos. I made sure to incorporate them toward the end of the session (after we had gotten plenty of non-blurry shots!). One of my favorites was Olivia & Alex running hand-in-hand in front of a plant wall! They look like two lovers who are caught up in the joy & bliss of the moment.

To end the session, Olivia & Alex had an outfit change and we went outside. We started using clear umbrellas to avoid the drizzle but it stopped pretty much right away! As we made our way down to the row of fountains, we were blessed with the most beautiful, electric pink sunset!!! What a way to end the session 😍

A Longwood Christmas

December is one of the most popular times to visit Longwood Gardens because of the Christmas-themed design of the gardens. Beyond the insane landscaping, there are a ton of twinkle lights and multiple massive Christmas trees that each have a unique decoration theme! Longwood Gardens already screams romance, so the nostalgia of Christmas decor added to that is pure magic. It’s one of my favorite engagement session locations for a reason!!!

The only thing to note about Longwood Christmas engagement photos is that everyone and their mother also wants to see the display. It will be crowded. However, as you can see in Olivia & Alex’s photos, it is totally possible to make your photos look like there was nobody else there!!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

"WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW PERFECT SHE WAS"

- Aaron & lydia

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

"SHE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND"

- Alex & mike

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

"SHE IS AN AMAZING PERSON"

- kevin & riya

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

"SHE MADE MY DREAM COME TRUE"

- brandon & nasia

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
