Engagement Photos at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park


Nicole and James wanted their engagement session to be genuine and full of natural elements. And since Nicole loves running through Fort Lauderdale’s Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, it was the perfect location for their engagement session. It’s admittedly a favorite of mine, too.

I usually ask couples to bring two outfits – one for “date night”, and another more casual. This time we started on the casual side with some fun photos around the park. Then we got a little dressier and wandered around the neighborhoods behind AIA around Sunrise Blvd. Nicole asked, “do you know where you’re going?”


Sometimes it’s better to get lost and to get to know my clients as a couple a bit more. The photos are just a bonus. Here’s some of my favorites from our time together in Fort Lauderdale:

We had maybe another 45 minutes of usable natural light by this time, so I made the call to switch outfits and meet me at the next location. Time to get a little dressier!
