Purely Love: Jen & Brad

These two are getting married SATURDAY!  We took their pictures a few months ago (and I am using them as a TBT😉 ) They really wanted rolling hills so we asked for permission to use a golf course during a slow time and they said yes!!! (we are so lucky!) The images turned out FANTASTIC! And we even had a ‘friend’ show up🙂  I can’t wait to hang out with you guys at Waldenwoods Saturday!🙂

I am in love with these silhouettes!!!❤
