Engagement of Allee + Ryan, 21 Oct 09

So we wondered, when the weather forecast says "40% chance of rain" does that mean there's a 100% chance of rain in the area, but only a 40% chance that it will rain on where you are? Or does it mean a 40% chance in the whole area? Well, we had time to ponder this as it rained for about 15 minutes. But despite mother nature's best efforts to mess with my mojo, Allee, Ryan and I teamed up to overcome it and get great photos at Mendon Ponds park. And in keeping with my 2010 "year of the teacher" theme, Allee is a certified teacher currently in grad school getting her masters :) They requested the park to incorporate the fall colors-- the park cooperated and so did Allee and Ryan. They were champs and did everything I requested of them, including walking out over a fallen tree suspended 8 feet above a 45 degree slope with about a 40 foot drop :) I can tell these two will get along really well for many years to come, they were very comfortable with one another, and clearly happy and in love.

This looked like I plopped them right in front of a painting:

Another great backdrop

Their balancing act

It wasn't hard at all for Allee to 'swoon' over Ryan :)

And for some colors:

Whenever I asked them to do a 'cool' pose or 'facebook' Allee kept doing this.. no one knew why but it was funny either way :)

The light fog helped make this seem more etheral

And check out the bling! Nice choice!
