It had been too long since I had last gotten a chance to shoot engagement session at the beautiful Avery Island Jungle Gardens. I’m talking over a year! So it was so nice to be back on the beautiful grounds with Sarah & Cody. We must have seen about 15 or so alligators while we were there! Which is more than I would normally see, but that’s probably due to the fact that there hasn’t been very many people walking the grounds over the last year and a half!
The stunning big oak trees that shade the grounds add so much elegance to this location. Sometimes I forget what we have here in Louisiana because it’s constantly available to us. Now that I know what it’s like to lose access to this gorgeous place, I will never take it for granted again.
Before you enter the Jungle Gardens you are greeted inside the gift shop at the entrance where you can find souvenirs, Tabasco treats, children’s toys, etc. I love to pick up something to bring home to my daughter when I shoot there, like a wooden cork gun.
These two were so sweet together! I love watching my couples interact together during their session, and these two were no different! In fact, some of these images were “test” shots and they were just so naturally adorable that the test became part of their gallery! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next April!
