J&J Studios, LLC: Jenny-Josh Horticultural Center Engagement Photos
Josh and Jenny decided to have their engagement shoot at the Horticulture Center at Fairmount Park. Despite a cloudy start to the day, and a bit of rain, nothing stopped us from producing some beautiful signature images from the shoot. If anything, the umbrella in some of the pictures adds to the romance of the session.
Above are the epic fountains on the Horticulture Center grounds. The Horticulture Center was built in 1979 on the same grounds as the 1876 Horticultural Hall, a Centennial Exposition building.
We started the shoot on the lush grounds of the Horticulture Center. In April, they are in full bloom and we found a wonderful bed of tulips that clamored for pictures among them. We happily obliged.
Next we headed over to the building itself which is quite symmetrical so of course we needed to do an epic environmental portrait in front of the main entrance.
The entrance to the Horticulture Center has a gorgeous accessible ramp with metal railings which are excellent leading lines for photography purposes, so we used that fact to create some romantic images on the ramp.
Once we finally got to the top of the ramp, the entire facade of the building are these rectangular glass semi-transparent panels so as a photographer, I knew this was a fantastic place to play with reflections.
I noticed immediately opposite the main entrance to the building was a brick facade so we stopped for a few short pictures there and I shot through the potted plants at the top of the ramp to add some foreground bokeh into the shot.
The greenhouse inside is gorgeous and it is difficult to take a bad picture inside such a delightful building. I’ll let the images speak for themselves.
After a stint in the greenhouse, we went outside for some closing images by the epic fountains as well as the treeline at the end of the fountains which provide amazing leading lines.

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
We met each other through work. I think how we met was meant to be. We’ve been working at the same company for years but just on different shift. I’ve ran into Josh a few times through training or meetings but we never really had any interaction. Once I switched to his shift because I got promoted, we started to interact with each other more and the rest is history.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
My proposal was very simple and sweet; very much like Josh. The proposal was definitely a surprise to me, so much that I thought he was kidding when it happened. We just got back from brunch and grocery shopping, something that we do every Sunday. He called me on the phone and asked if I can come to the garage because he wanted my opinion on something that he’d made. When I got to the garage, he sat me on the bench and gave me a beautiful wooden box that he had made.
At first, I didn’t know what it was so I kept on asking “what is this”. As he was starting to say something, I opened the lid and saw a set of gold rings. I immediately got excited and took it out of the box to try it on. I’ve just graduated so I thought the rings were a congratulation present. He then told me to calm down and that is when he took my hands and said how much he loves me and want to start building a family together.
Next thing you know, the words “will you marry me” came out of his mouth and I just sat there in silence for a good 30 seconds. I couldn’t believe this was really happening so I kept on asking him “are you serious?” “is this really happening?” “you’re serious?”. Of course I said “yes” after 5 minutes of being in disbelief that this is really happening.
