Here in Jacksonville, Florida the Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs rivalry becomes the conflict epicenter once a year as both school's football teams play each other at Everbank Field. Being married to a Florida Gator myself, I know exactly how intense this rivalry can be. For Govinda and Brad, this rivalry is what brought them together. Both Gators fans, they were at the same tailgate when Govinda mentioned she had an extra ticket to the game. Brad took her up on it. After the game they walked across the Main Street bridge, and spent many hours talking and hanging out around Friendship Fountain and sitting on a pier overlooking downtown. The two of them wouldn't be the same after that. Now here they are preparing for their wedding in November. I had a great time taking their engagement portraits around the area where they ignited their romance downtown as well as one of their favorite parks, Walter Jones Park in Mandarin. Here are my favorites from our time together.
