Freedom Park Engagement Session | Tori & John | Charlotte, NC

Freedom Park Engagement Session

The Location

Freedom Park is a popular choice for engaged couples living in Charlotte because it offers many different backdrops within a walkable distance. We love returning to this park because every session will come out differently! Tori and John decided to plan their engagement session here in December. You may think, “All of the leaves will be gone! What will the photographer have to work with?!” Fear not. We photographers can work anywhere, any time. 😉

The Session

Tori and John love the city they live in! They decided to go for an outdoorsy session since their wedding ceremony will be at a church and the reception at the Mint Museum in uptown. I love that they decided to go for an engagement session totally different than the urban style of their wedding day. This gives a lot of diversity in the photographs they can use around their home!


Tori and John, we are so grateful you chose us to be a part of this exciting time in your lives! You guys are adorable and we loved getting to know you better while bopping around the park with you. We are so excited about your upcoming wedding and look forward to seeing you in person again soon!

Here are a few of our favorite engagement photographs from Tori and John’s Freedom Park engagement session!
