Kelly & Rob Engaged

Kelly and Rob are a great couple that know how to laugh and make each other smile...even if this means teasing each other relentlessly.

I like that about them.

Kelly and Rob were a lot of fun, and despite the gray day we made the best of it!

It POURED on the highway as I was driving from our apartment and all I could think was UGH!!

We had already rescheduled once due to the cruddy weather and they really wanted that fall look.

By the time we finally picked a day that worked for everyone (including Mother Nature) it was the first week in November.

We headed to a location I knew well and lived nearby too many, many years ago called Buttonwoods or Warwick City Park in Rhode Island.

I love shooting in RI!

It has a huge dog park which is pretty popular, but is also filled with amazing trails, the bay, beautiful tall trees, and these lovely wispy grasses I discovered (score!).

It really is a great park.

So to begin I asked Kelly and Rob to walk over and just "get in the grasses" haha.

Usually by the second week in October the leaves are gone...not a whole lot of prettiness left over.

This fall I was lucky though, it stayed warm for a very long time. It was the warmest fall I can remember. It was still in the upper 60's in late October when it should be 30.

The warmer weather means the leaves stick it out a bit more and hold on just that much longer.

It was however cold the day we shot, but they never once complained. They rocked it!

After I shot Kelly's beautiful ring on the pine cone I found these leaves and thought they were perfect!

Such a pretty shade. I ran over to the woods and snagged this branch.

Then we did a few poses under this Oak tree.

Isn't their giant pumpkin that they painted adorable?

I love when my clients bring their own personality (and props) to the session!

I wonder what the secret was? ; )

Rob and Kelly even brought these cute mini signs.
