The other week I had an amazing excuse to go home to Connecticut. Katie told me how much she loved the outdoors and that they wanted their pictures to be taken at Southford Falls. “Do you know of it?” she asked. Southford Falls happened to be in my home town and I know the place well. I knew that we were going to have fun. The morning of the photo shoot the clouds were swirling in the sky and the weather threatened rain so we met up early to avoid the impending storm. The rain never came. Instead the clouds parted and we had beautiful sunlight for this fall photo shoot.
This little covered bridge is definitely a center piece of this park.(Funny story about this pond: I was fishing right around this spot when I was 5 and fell in. At the time I could not swim so a stranger jumped in and fished me out.)When Katie and Walter were standing together they were talking to one another, which is great to get emotions caught in the camera. I heard little snippets that were so sweet. Walter was telling Katie how pretty she was, among many things. Their love for one another made the photo shoot such a joy to capture. I asked Katie and Walter how they were engaged. Katie told me about how she loves fire works so she made Walter go with her the day before the fourth of July to watch them on the beach. Walter remarked how he pretended that he didn’t really want to go so that Katie wouldn’t suspect anything.
Walter and Katie made it to the sand and set up their chairs to watch the fire work show. Just as the fire works started to shoot into the sky, Walter turned to Katie and began to tell her how she is his best friend and many things that Katie said she could barely recall because she was so surprised when she realized that Walter was beginning to propose.To see more photos from Katie and Walter’s engagement session visit Lovely Lens Photography on Facebook.
