Amanda & Ryan | Bowen Park Engagement Session

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.” – Ann Landers

Bowen Park is a picturesque location and a favorite with Amanda & Ryan. We chosen to use Bowen Park for this session as that is where they’ve chosen to have their wedding ceremony. It also gave us an opportunity to scope out the best places for photos on the day of the wedding while getting some gorgeous photos of the two of them relaxing and having a quiet moment among the chaos of the final stages of wedding planning.

This was actually Amanda & Ryan’s second engagement session with me! Their first session happened in the fall and in true West Coast style, it rained. A lot. While we had a great time wandering through Neck Point chatting about all their travel adventures, the images just didn’t look how I wanted them too and I didn’t feel that they showed the love they have for each other. I think that was because it was so cold and we were all soaking wet lol So, another engagement session was planned for nicer (and warmer!) weather.

For their second engagement session we took full advantage of the variety of scenery and hidden places within the beauty of Bowen Park. For being in the middle of the city this park is a bit of a hidden gem. You really have to take a few hours and wander it’s many paths to see the true beauty of the park. The rhododendrons were in full bloom and provided a beautiful, colorful background for several of their photos. Just watch out for the bees!
