A Japanese Garden Engagement Session in Mobile, Alabama | Keira & Thomas

Keira and Thomas had the most perfect day for their Japanese Garden engagement session in Mobile AL. These two wanted their session at the Charles Wood Japanese Garden and it was seriously beautiful. It was overcast and a little cool, but it made the whole day feel just wonderful. We spent the afternoon with Keira and Thomas, learning more about them and their wedding plans. Currently, Keira is a student at the University of South Alabama, so they’ll be getting married when she’s all finished with that! Together, we walked around the gardens and found spots for them to cozy up. The entire venue was just so romantic – it was easy to photograph this sweet couple!

A Japanese Garden Engagement Session

Would you believe us if we said this was the first time Keira and Thomas had their photos taken? We didn’t think so! They were a little nervous when we first started our session, but by the end, they were so relaxed! Thomas even told us that he loved the session and was disappointed to miss their design session with us. It’s impossible to tell you just how much that means to us to hear! All we ever want is for our G&S Couples to have the best experience ever throughout their engagement and wedding photos! When we found out that Keira’s mom and Thomas’s step mom also loved the images, we were over the moon!

Keira and Thomas will be officially tying the knot in June 2022 at the beautiful Gardens at Bella Sera in Loxley, AL. Personally, we LOVE that venue and were so excited to hear that’s where they’ll be starting their forever! Congratulations, Keira and Thomas! Thank you for letting us document these amazing memories for you! Your wedding day will be here before you know it – so enjoy this time as long as you can!
