Ryan & Chelsea: ENGAGED | Bradenton Portrait Photographer – Christina Z Photography

Capturing your childhood best friend in pure engagement bliss = The Best Job in the World!

Chelsea and I were instant best friends when I moved next door in the 5th grade. From then on, we were in separable. Vacations, holidays, birthdays, slumber parties, dinner.. the list goes on. She stood by me when I got married, and I get to stand by her when she marries Ryan. I couldn’t be more thrilled, until I suggested I do her engagement photos (since I’m in the wedding). When she agreed that was the cherry on top.

Enough about my relationship with the bride-to-be, how about a sweet  love story… Chelsea had a jewelry party, and was bummed out because she wasn’t getting anything. To her surprise, Ryan purposed to her. In front of all her friends & family. <Cue the “awes”> How sweet?

When planning Chelsea & Ryan’s engagement session, they had suggested using H&H Nursery, since Ryan’s family owns it. It couldn’t have been more perfect. We even snuck over to the vineyards next door (with permission of course).  There were so many favorites of mine, I would clog Facebook‘s Newsfeed for hours… so without further ado, here is Ryan & Chelsea’s e-session.
