I had such a great time with this couple just taking it easy and walking all around The Mill at Fine Creek. Quick to laugh and have a good time we were able to easily take some great photos. Here are a few of my favorites as well as their engagement story in their own words.
“Every spring I (Jeff) go up to Pittsburgh to catch a couple of baseball games, as I’m a Pirates fan. This year I had bought tickets to take Sarah-Anne with me. We’d been talking about getting engaged for some time, she’d picked out a setting and knew that I’d been over to visit the jeweler a number of times, but she thought that our weekend up in PA would be too “obvious” a time to propose, and since I’m usually pretty contrary, she didn’t think I’d ask her that weekend. I knew of a really pretty public park out at the city point where the 3 rivers meet, and so I’d planned on taking her there and proposing next to the fountain at the edge of the park. However, when we reached the park, we found the entire place under renovation, with chain link fences everywhere — you couldn’t even get down to the water’s edge, and the entire fountain area had been unearthed. However, there was still a really pretty grassy area in the middle of the park that we could walk around, and so we eventually settled down underneath a tree there. I started talking about how I’d planned on going down by the water’s edge and talking to her about the rivers, the two smaller ones forming the larger Ohio, and she’s looking at me with an expression that says “what in the world are you talking about?” Anyway, I fumbled around for a bit longer, completely flustered by the way my plan had collapsed, but eventually wound up on one knee. And of course, she said yes.”
