Word’s can’t express how excited I am to get our engagement pictures done this weekend!
The shoot will be pretty informal because we’re having one of my really good friends (who happens to be a photographer) take them. I figured I’d rather spend more money to get the professional wedding photographer I wanted than to get a different photographer w/ an engagement shoot included. We are going to the MN Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, MN so the shoot will be outdoors!
Has anyone taken pictures at an arboretum before? If not, at least outdoors? Do you have any unique, preferably more natural “poses” or ideas for engagement pictures?
Now here is where I need help! I’m trying to figure out what I am truly looking for. If you would be willing to share your arboretum/outdoor engagement pictures with me on this thread, I would GREATLY APPRECIATE it..
I’m at a loss for ideas right now and need some major inspiration! Thanks so much!

Ours were outside of our photographers house! If you have a good photographer it doesn’t matter where you are!

@Ladyjenn: Beautiful picture! Thanks for sharing! and I completely agree with you.. having a good photographer is KEY, and with one everything will fall into place!
Any other suggestions/photos? I could REALLY use the help!!

I know mine are autumnal shots, but I hope this helps! My advice is to trust your photographer–sometimes what you see around you looks weird, but through the eyes of the camera, it looks beautiful. We were concerned about crouching in a bunch of dead flowers (the second to last shot) but it turned out to be one of our favorites! Have fun!
