Unless you’re Tennessee-based photographer Shea Cravens, you’ve probably never strolled through your local olive garden and thought, “This would make a great backdrop for an engagement photo shoot!” understood. You’re probably obsessed with the idea of endless breadsticks and chicken parmigiana.
But for Cravens, Olive Garden immediately came to mind when a newly engaged couple wanted a slightly different location for their engagement photos.
“I asked Shay, our photographer and long-time friend, if there was a place she’d been wanting to shoot but hadn’t yet, and she mentioned Olive Garden!” Engaged Couple Carlsey Bibb, one half of the company, said in an interview with BuzzFeed:
Cravens told BuzzFeed that, oddly enough, the idea for the Olive Garden photo shoot came during lunch at an Italian-American chain.
“I looked around the building and said to my mother, ‘This would be a great place to take a picture’… When I started planning to take Carlsey and Cayden’s engagement photos, Carlsey asked my I completely trusted the idea. Thank you very much,” Cravens said.
In a video Cravens shared on both Instagram and TikTok, we see what Olive Garden looks like in a charming Italian city. Cravens received a lot of positive feedback for her engagement photos in her Olive Garden.
“I haven’t taken pictures at other restaurants, but I did do a photo shoot outside the Big Lot because it was a really nice area that caught my eye to take pictures!” she said. I was.
