Hotel Baker is thankfully a great venue for both weddings and engagement sessions. The river views, stunning gardens and architecture make it a dream background.

We started their engagement photos in the gardens at Hotel Baker. The contrast of the greenery with the old stone makes lovely backgrounds. We timed the session to be about two hours before sunset to catch the golden light. It was fun using some reflections off the water.

Alexis & Jhonattan were a fun couple to photograph. They have so much chemistry and laughed most of the session.

After some photos in the gardens we went over the main bridge to the waterfall area across the river. The sun was still a little higher than ideal but we managed to get some awesome photos with some sun peeking out behind the buildings.

I wish we had this weather again on their wedding day, but sadly it poured all day. But that only made these outside photos around Hotel Baker more special.

 

I cannot wait to photograph another wedding and more engagement sessions at Hotel Baker!
