amy + eli (engagement)

yesterday was a day that i kind of worried about the weather.

i woke up seeing beautiful sunshine and blue skies, but by the time i was going to meet amy and eli for their photo shoot, it looked cloudy and gray all over, like at any minute two tons of rain could dump down on our heads and give us a run for our money when trying to shoot outdoors.

i prayed that it wouldn't. :) thankfully, the bad weather held off, and i met amy and eli near union college in schenectady, ny where we took an hour to get to know each other and play around with photos and poses in preparation for their big day, coming up this november. it had been a long time since i'd last seen amy, and even then only briefly met her maybe once or twice- but getting to know them both was a great experience as they are fantastic, together and seperately. i think amy is the most laid-back bride i've ever met or worked with, which i am so excited about! they are easy to get along with and fun to be around... it's easy to see how they were drawn to each other. because they are so easygoing about their big day, i'm especially excited to see how unique this wedding will turn out to be. more to come in late november!

the ring is beautiful and belonged to her grandmother. on the antique setting you can even see a small wear spot on the inside where it rubbed against her grandmother's wedding band for so many years.

this shot reminds me of a scene from a movie like sense & sensibility
