UC Berkeley Botanical Garden Engagement // Jessica + Ahilan


We are so excited to share Jessica and Ahilan’s UC Berkeley Botanical Garden Engagement! We had so much fun wandering through this enchanting location with our lovely couple.

UC Berkeley Botanical Garden is located on the UC Berkeley campus. “The 34-acre UC Botanical Garden is one of the most diverse landscapes in the world, with over 10,000 types of plants including many rare and endangered species.  Organized geographically, the Garden features 9 regions of naturalistic plantings from Australia, and Asia, to South Africa, along with a major collection of California native plants.”

This is a gorgeous location for engagement photos due to the diverse landscapes and endless opportunities for beautiful backdrops. As you scroll through Jessica and Ahilan’s gallery, you will see that they chose to take most of their images surrounded by tall trees in the Redwood Grove, creating a fairytale vibe. For more beautiful engagement photo location ideas, check out our website! Some of our favorite California engagement locations are San Francisco Lands End, The Conservatory of Flowers, and the Palace of Fine Arts.
