Niya + Bralen | Holcomb Gardens Engagement Photos

Couples

December 14, 2021

Niya and Bralen may be the youngest KMP couple so far, but you’d never know it! These two are so mature, cool and collected, but their love is evident by the way they make each other giggle and smile! They would both describe their relationship as goofy and romantic, and I couldn’t agree more!

Niya and Bralen met through Niya’s older sister, and hit it off ever since.  

Whether they’re hanging out with their friends, or watching their latest Netflix binge on the couch, they simply like just being together.  When they decided to take their relationship to the next level, Bralen planned a secret family dinner.  When Niya arrived, she was surprised to see their families there and Bralen down on one knee asking if she’d spend the rest of her life with him.  Spoiler alert: she said yes!

Their Classy Holcomb Gardens Engagement Photos

When Niya and I were planning their Holcomb Gardens engagement photos, she had a few inspirational photos from another couple’s session she had seen.  She used these images to help plan and coordinate their outfits- one dressy with her gorgeous ivory sequin dress, and Bralen’s plaid dress coat.  The other outfit was more casual that was still classy and fitted.  I love the neutral colors they chose that were still made interesting with different textures and styles!  We started their session at Holcomb Gardens by the weeping willow that luckily still had a few leaves left this late in the fall.  These were some of my favorite images from their session since we were able to use the branches as a dreamy foreground! My other favorite thing about their Holcomb Gardens engagement photos?  Both of there mom’s tagged along, and they were just the sweetest!!  I can’t wait to hang out with them at their wedding!

Congratulations on your engagement Niya and Bralen!

I cannot wait for their wedding day at FORUM Events Center in April, it’s going to be such a fun day, and by then both of them can (legally) celebrate with a glass or two of champagne! I know you both are so excited to just be married to one another and become Mr. and Mrs!  Scroll below to see their dreamy engagement session at Holcomb Gardens!

  1. […] Holcomb Gardens is another location that makes me feel like I’m in the movie ‘The Secret Garden’. (Any other 90’s babies out there?!) It was one of my favorite movies! There is so much variety here, from the pond and picturesque fountain, the grand staircase, the lush green open landscape and my favorite dreamy weeping willow tree that allows the sunset to poke through oh-so-perfectly! Holcomb Gardens is located on Butler’s campus and is absolutely free! Parking is easy right in the circle drive at the bottom of the hill once you enter the park. You can see more engagement sessions we’ve taken at Holcomb Gardens here! […]

  2. […] I mentioned in their engagement session post, Niya and Bralen are the youngest KMP couple yet, but if you met them you would never know.  […]
