Danielle and Chris announces their engagement with a gorgeous, sun-shine filled session in Palm Beach at Mounts Botanical Garden, finished by a stroll down Worth Avenue. They are such a lovely couple who share not only their love of god, but an absolutely adorable proposal story as well!
We’d been talking for weeks about doing Legends of Xscape in West Palm Beach Chris’s brother and sister-in-law. Chris’ parents bought it as a gift for his nephew for Christmas so that I’d have no clue what was up. We met his brother, sister-in-law, and nephew at the escape room and went in. The entire staff knew what was happening, they had been in contact with Chris for a few weeks, setting everything up and working out the logistics. So, on the final clue, you had to use the combination of numbers to open a safe in the wall, which I did (how ironic!) and in the safe was the clue to get out of the room AND an empty ring box. I read the clue aloud, still facing the wall, and turned around to try to decipher what it meant with the group (because the empty ring box wasn’t a sign to me, it kind of went along with the storyline of the escape room!). When I turned around, Chris was on his knee asking me to marry him!
First Stop: Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm
Not only did I get to spend the afternoon with this amazing couple, but I was also able to explore West Palm Beach, which is an area I don’t often venture (until now). We started Danielle and Chris’s engagement session with some photos at Mount’s Botanical Garden. With spring being right around the corner, the plants were in full bloom and it was an incredibly beautiful place to capture love.
Next Stop: Worth Avenue in Downtown Palm Beach
After fumbling around with a few other location ideas and a quick outfit change, we made our way down to explore Worth Avenue, an upscale shopping district in downtown Palm Beach. This may be my new favorite spot ever, guys! It’s so beautifully kept and the natural architecture is so perfect for really stunning engagement photography.
