Nicolle and Bradley Engagement; Tampa, Fl.

Engagement photography by Chris Watkins Photography of Gainesville, Fl.


A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of photographing one of the most fun loving and awesome couples that we have ever met here at Chris Watkins Photography. Nicolle is a grad student at the University of South Florida and her fiancé Bradley is a police officer at the University of Florida in Gainesville. They met in Gainesville while she was a student at UF and he was on patrol. He didn’t arrest her, but she stole his heart as the two quickly bonded over a game of Monopoly.

The way that we met Nicolle is that she won our “Win a Free Mini Session,” promotion that we ran back in January. When we asked her where she and her fiancé wanted to photograph their session, they quickly said that they wanted to take the pictures in Tampa, at their favorite spot Mobbly Bayou. We loaded up our camera equipment and headed south.

Nicolle and her fiancé Bradley are into almost everything outdoors including paddle boarding and relaxing beach side in their hammock. They even brought their two dogs to incorporate them into the shoot.

We could not have asked for a more exquisite day to photograph these two love birds  engagement session. I brought my bathing suit and bravely ventured out into Tampa Bay with the camera to capture some stunning photographs.

Nicolle and Bradley, we wish you the best as they continue nurture their relationship as their wedding day approaches.
