Choosing an engagement session location can be tough. You’ve finally climbed out of the Pinterest rabbit hole (welcome back) & realized your favorite photos had one thing in common: a natural background. Maybe you’re dreaming of the reds & oranges of fall or bright, lush greenery or a romantic wooded scene. But where can you get that in Indy?! Girl, I got you. Right here is a list of my Top Natural Indianapolis Engagement Locations. Bear in mind these aren’t the only hot spots to have your session. I’ll keep adding to this list as I find hidden gems around the city. 🙂

  1. Coxhall Gardens, Carmel. I adore this place. It’s huuuuge, easy to access, and brings a mix of natural and a little urban with the amphitheater. Just off 116th st and Town Road, there’s a gorgeous mansion on site with a patio that is great in the spring! And, if you’re still looking for a wedding venue, you can get married in the amphitheater with a tented reception.Holcomb Gardens Engagement Session
  2. Holcomb Gardens, Butler University. This small park is *always* manicured. There’s a small waterfall, large steps, and a pond with a fountain!
  3. Holliday Park. I’ve recently discovered this little park & we had our maternity photos done there. The ruins are AMAZING! This would be the perfect fall backdrop at sunset.Fort Harrison State Park Engagement Session
  4. Fort Harrison State Park. On the north-west side, this huge state park is perfect for summer or fall photos. It has open fields, wooded areas, paths, wild grass, a small lake (a large pond?!), and hiking trails.Newfields IMA Engagement Session
  5. Newfields, formally the IMA. Absolutely one of my favorite places to photograph sessions! With a plethora of backgrounds and places to go, it gives such great variety. There’s also a beer garden *ahem, hollaaa* and a greenhouse packed with plants. A $50 photography fee is added, but I promise this place is well worth it!Garfield Park Conservatory Engagement Session
  6. Garfield Park Conservatory and Sunken Gardens. This is an all-year-round place(!!) which you don’t get when looking for a lot of greenery in your images. The conservatory is a loop with a nice pathway & a small waterfall at one end. During warmer months the Sunken Gardens are a great addition to the indoor photos. They only allow one photo shoot per hour which means we won’t have to fight for any good photo spots. 😉 There is a $75 photography fee and $2 entry charge, but just like Newfields, this place is worth it!

Have a favorite spot that isn’t on this list? Tell me! I love learning about new places, especially if it’s special to you. Together we can make *any* location look amazing. Don’t believe me? Check out this styled shoot at Sullivan’s Hardware!
