Brad & Jessica // Windsor Castle Park Engagement Photographer

One thing I love about my brides this year especially is that they come from all different walks of life. Brad and Jessica have been dating for years - since high school, in fact - and are finally tying the knot come February. Jessica is a hard-working nurse with a bright laugh and one of the biggest smiles I've ever seen. Brad loves fishing, his German shepherd, and most of all, he loves Jessica.

Between the two of them, they couldn't stop smiling on the most gorgeous day in May at Windsor Castle Park. From the glowy sunset to the fishing pole Brad carefully chose (yes, it even matches their outfits!), the evening could not have been more perfect. Everyone tells me they're nervous before they start their first session, but Brad and Jessica handled being in front of the camera with ease. They were simply a joy to be with, both as individuals and the amazing couple they've become.

Brad and Jessica - I'm so excited for the next big step in your journey! (And Brad - I'm so glad you actually MADE it to the engagement session after your kayaking 'adventure') Thank you so much for being genuine and real towards me and each other. Your love for each other is evident in every picture, and I'm so excited for your wedding in February. It's going to be beautiful!
