Engagement of Elise + Derek, 17 Oct 10

Elise and Derek are getting married next year in Webster, but are from Ohio, so they happened to be in town this weekend to do some wedding planning... and get some engagement portraits done in the fall. Wanting some fall colors, I took them to one of my favorite places, Mendon Ponds park. Just so happened we are right at peak color this week, and I was sure to incorporate it. They also brought their very cute and well trained Golden Retriever puppy Bentley. He makes an appearance this week too :) Thanks for the opportunity to shoot, I enjoyed it and I'm pleased with the result.

A beautiful custom made ring (good job, Derek!)

I love the connection here

Mr Bentley

Derek proposed by tying the ring onto Bentley's collar. Elise didn't notice right away :)
