During the first semester of her junior year of college, Jessica was living in Spain as part of her study abroad program. It was going so well that she considered extended her time there for a full year. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in Europe just a little longer? But things have a way of working out the way they’re supposed to.
Jessica came back to college and joined the Residence Life staff. It just so happened that Josh was part of her team. Technically, being that he was a senior and in a supervisory role, he was her “boss”. But through meetings and working together they got to know each other, found they kind of liked each other, and started dating. Those dates turned to in love, which lead to a proposal during a trip to Charleston, SC. Their wedding will be next year, but before the big day comes we met up for their engagement photos.
I don’t know what it is, but this year my couples and I have have had the uncanny ability to schedule engagement sessions on dates when it rains. Jessica and Josh were no exception, but our rescheduled date was the day right after the 4th of July holiday. Let me tell you, that’s a great day to visit a park! Everyone goes for the holiday and then it’s pretty much empty the day after. Great Falls can be a crowded place sometimes, but we were fortunate to not have to worry about many people being in the background of their photos. Now being really hot we couldn’t avoid, but luckily you can’t tell temperatures in photos!
These two were so much fun and were so quick to laugh and just have a good time together. I can’t ask for more than that! (And be sure to check out the last photo – it’s my favorite!)
