Highland Park Lamberton Conservatory Engagement Session | Rochester, NY | Chelsey and Dave


In all my years living in Rochester, and all the sessions I’ve done at Highland Park, this was actually the FIRST time I’d ever been inside the Lamberton Conservatory! I’m so glad that Chelsey and Dave picked this spot for their engagement photos because it’s absolutely beautiful. (And although we ended up having nice weather, we loved that this location works in rain or shine!)

Chelsey and Dave are both animal lovers (they’ve got two cats at home), so you know they were excited about the animal photo bombers we had at their session! Keep scrolling to see who else was hanging out in the conservatory with us haha.


I am in love with Chelsey’s engagement ring!


Oh my gosh, these little quails were EVERYWHERE in the conservatory! Just zipping around underneath our feet the whole time. I was so nervous about stepping on them accidentally. But thankfully, we made it through the shoot without any bird injuries haha. And the turtles were all over the place too! It was such a fun surprise to have animals for Dave and Chelsey’s engagement photos in addition to all the cool plants.


Aren’t they just adorable together?! I think these photos on the bench are my favorites.


I can’t wait for their wedding next year at the Durand Eastman Clubhouse!
