Linsey and Andy wanted their holiday portrait session to be at McKinley Park in Sacramento where Andy proposed. We started at the rose garden and then roamed around to various spots. Their 3-legged Sampson is a huge part of their lives and was welcomed along, of course. These two are getting married next September and hopefully I’ll be photographing those moments too (wink wink). A big thanks to you both for sharing your afternoon with me!
Andy proposed at this very bench and I thought it was the perfect place to begin our portrait session.
After our photo session was complete, I went back to the rose garden to take some pictures of one of my other favorite subjects – flowers. I was looking at the names of the bushes and realized that the bench Andy proposed in front of was smack dab in between the “Peace” and “Sweet Surrender” rose bushes. Isn’t that cute! I’m sure it wasn’t planned but I think starting off your life together in between a little peace and sweet surrender couldn’t hurt anyone.
