Welcome to a sneak peek of Brandy and Tom’s engagement session. For me this wasn’t just another engagement session. Let me fill you in..
Brandy and I have been friends longer than I can even remember, but if I had to give it a timeframe I’d say roughly a quarter century (EEK). We spent a lot of our most impressionable and important years together; all of middle school, learning to navigate those terrible teenagers years, boyfriends, and of course breakups. We were there for the best and the worst of it. Brandy’s family is my family and I always loved spending the weekend at her house. I think I may have spent more time at her house than my own some years. We ended up at different high schools but never lost our connection or friendship. As we grew older our time together wasn’t as frequent and now as adults with lives and families of our own, we mostly just text. But, regardless of how much time passes without seeing each other, or between texts, it will always be like no time has passed at all. Those are the friendships you hold onto in life, they really are hard to come by.
So as you all now know, I’ve been around for a few of the people Brandy has had in her life. In our younger years we were pretty protective of who we “allowed” to date each other. If the other didn’t approve, it kind of just ended there. So having rejected a few people in the past it makes me so happy to see someone in her life who fills her heart and life the way your forever person should. I guess it’s obvious at this point, I approve of her choice in Tom. Together they have created a beautiful family and a life that they should be proud of.
This engagement session was amazing. We stopped at the Wadsworth Mansion for a few photos and headed over to the Wadsworth Falls, which happen to be some of my favorite images, ever!
I am so happy for Brandy and Tom. I can’t wait for their wedding next year! Congrats you crazy kids!
