Fall engagement session at Fountainebleau State Park – Taylor and Dustin

December 28, 2022

Fountainebleau State Park is a beautiful location for an engagement session. Located just outside of New Orleans, this park offers a variety of landscapes for couples to choose from, including sandy beaches, towering oak trees, and picturesque waterways.

One of the most popular locations for engagement sessions at Fountainebleau State Park is the beach. The sandy shore, full of cypress knees and roots provides a stunning backdrop for photos. The beach is also a great spot for couples who love to get a little playful and have some fun during their session. Whether it’s playing in the waves or cuddling up on the shore, the beach offers endless opportunities for romantic and intimate photos.

Another popular location for engagement sessions at Fountainebleau State Park is the majestic oak trees. The park is home to a number of ancient oak trees that provide a beautiful and natural backdrop for photos. Whether you choose to stand beneath the branches or stroll through the tunnel of oaks, the oak trees offer a unique and beautiful setting for engagement photos.

Finally, the waterways at Fountainebleau State Park provide a serene and peaceful setting for engagement sessions. Whether you choose to pose in front of the tranquil pond or on the banks of the bayou, the waterways offer a beautiful and serene setting for engagement photos.  For this session, we even found a huge puddle of water to use at the very end!

No matter which location you choose, Fountainebleau State Park is a perfect place for an engagement session. With its beautiful landscapes and natural beauty, it’s sure to provide the perfect setting for your special photos.

These are some of the many reasons Taylor and Dustin chose this location for their engagement session and this time of year was absolutely perfect for a fall session.   The warm sunlight lit up the moss of the oak trees so that it made a glowy backdrop for the first half of the session.  The bright fall colors surrounded them on the beach of Lake Pontchartrain in the second part of the session.  The ironic part is that I took them down one of the side streets before heading to the beach because I wanted to get some of the yellow maple leaves in their photos so that we could capture at a little bit of the fall colors.   I had no idea just how colorful the beachfront was going to be – especially with the warm glow of the almost-setting sun!

I had the best time with these two and I wish them all the best throughout the rest of their engagement and for their wedding ceremony on the beach in Florida next year!
