The Reeves Reed Arboretum in Summit, NJ is a beautiful location for an engagement session or wedding. The grounds offer formal gardens and nature trails. The permit for taking photos there was reasonably priced. Please contact the arboretum for current pricing and details.
On the day of this session we went early in the morning for the best light and to avoid any crowds. Aside from a gardner, the only other creatures there were bunnies, a chipmunk and of course lots of birds! We started taking engagement portraits near the greenhouse and then made our way to the Reeves Rose Garden. The light was beautiful and the flowers matched my bride-to-be's floral dress. I love a nice flowing long dress for portraits.
