Engagement: Brookside Gardens, Silver Spring, Maryland

These Brookside Gardens engagement photos were taken in October during sunset. Brookside Gardens is in Montgomery County, Maryland. The couple knew each other back from elementary school. Throughout their childhood they were friends and started dating in college. Dating was a bit difficult for them as it was a tad bit of long distance within the state. They shared their relationship was important and distance was not going to be an issue.
