I'm a sucker for Fall engagement sessions -especially when the season lines up and does what it's supposed to. It was a little bit nippy but I like it that way since I overheat pretty quick. We met Alexandra and Rich at Wolf's Ridge Brewing for a few inside shots before they opened for the day. After a coupe of 'His' and 'Hers' brews we headed out into the cold for some car captures in a nearby parking lot. We found a couple of cool color block walls for some contrast around the corner where we rocked some signs as danced a little bit. The night ended as the sun went down at the Topiary Park on East Town Street as we walked, talked and twirled down the pathways. Looking forward to our upcoming Spring Sunset mini shoot! xoxo, Elle


"I was getting impatient, to say the least. "Why don't we go try on rings again?" I said. We went to New Orleans: no ring. I was like, "bro, pick up the pace." Then we went to the wedding of one of my coworkers. The bride's father was making a speech, and he said he was so happy his new son in law recognized how important family was to his daughter to propose at Thanksgiving in front of everyone. This sentiment really struck a chord with Rich as he made the connection of how close I am with my family.

On May 21st, we had a change of plans and were going to my parents' house for dinner. My sister and brother-in-law and niece and nephew were there, too. At one point, I walked into the garage, and Rich and my dad seemed to be having a pretty intense heart-to-heart. I said, "am I interrupting?" They said no, but I thought to myself, "I wonder if Rich is asking my dad for permission to marry me."

The night wore on, and my sister and brother-in-law and niece and nephew left. I brought my parents out to look at the car Rich had brought home from work. While we were out there, Rich started talking (I have no idea what he was saying). For some reason, my eyes followed his hand as he reached into his pocket and said something about making me his wife. I couldn't believe my ears and eyes! He got down on one knee, and he said "will you marry me?" Of course I said yes a thousand times, and pulled him to his feet by his face. We started kissing, and my dad said, "I guess that's our sign to go" to my mom. Classic NFD (not for dad) moment."
