Shooting at the UGA State Botanical Garden


I recently moved to Athens for school and to end my first week, of course we had to explore the most popular spot here. I've heard a lot about this botanical garden, so I got some friends together and we explored the Georgia State Botanical Gardens at UGA. It was everything that I imagined it to be.

We went in the morning when it first opened at 8 AM. It’s Georgia, so it was getting kind of warm already but the gardens were nicely shaded. The flowers all looked freshly bloomed and perfectly taken care of. We were also accompanied by the pleasant smell of rosemary. They even have walking trails if you’re there just to relax!

The UGA Botanical Gardens is simply a relaxing place to be —and the most beautiful background for photographers who also love nature! If you’re local or in the area, it is definitely worth the trip. The best part is that admission is free, so come experience the beauty of Athens, Georgia!
