Fort Worth Botanic Garden and Kimball Art Museum Engagement Session | Tori & Tyler

Jan 26, 2021

Hi guys!

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the chance to sit down and take some time to blog with all the craziness from 2020!

First up is Tori & Tyler’s Fall Engagement Session at The Fort Worth Botanic Garden and The Kimball Art Museum. I think it’s safe to say this is definitely my favorite pairing of locations in Fort Worth. These spots are under a 5 minute drive from each other and offer two completely different looks!

If you are thinking these may be the spots for your session, awesome!! I created a short list of tips below to help you have the best experience!

1. Definitely go on a weekday! These spots are both super popular destinations on the weekend and tend to be very crowded. There are times on the weekend that you may end up waiting several minutes just for one spot at The Botanic Garden but if you go during the week you may just get the main garden all to yourselves, like we did for Tori & Tyler’s Engagement Session.

2. Start at The Garden and purchase your permit ahead of time. Currently they are $75 and that includes admission for up to three guests. I typically recommend purchasing the permit the morning of your session (in case the weather doesn’t cooperate) and meet just a few minutes early since there is typically a short line at the entrance. Once you arrive, there will be another form to fill out and for your photographer to sign. Don’t try to skip getting your permit. They are very strict about this!

3. Keep an eye on the time! Once you are inside, there are tons of pretty spots everywhere. Typically, if I have a client combining The Botanic Garden with The Kimball, we won’t go past the Main Garden to save on time because you can easily spend hours in the place and with two locations, you won’t have that kind of time. If you are only photographing your session at The Botanic Garden, definitely make your way to The Japanese Gardens. They are breathtaking, especially in the Fall!

4. End your session at The Kimball Art Museum! The Kimball is so pretty and free to photograph as long as you stay outside. It is a great spot to use for a more formal look and there are several arches in case you have a few other photographers there with you. I absolutely love incorporating their fountains, the stairs and benches all along the wall. It is such a bright, clean background that compliment any formal outfit and it will give you a totally different feel from the Botanic Garden.

Check out a few of my Favorite’s from Tori & Tyler’s recent engagement session! I just adored hanging out with these two and can’t wait to photograph their upcoming wedding at The Brooks at Weatherford this March!
