Devon & Mitch are Engaged!

I met this couple at the General Store Cafe Garden Party, Mitch had told Devon that maybe she should go check out the local wedding vendors and luckily she did! A little while later they were "officially" engaged with a sparkling diamond ring and all. They called me up to photograph their engagement session so off we went to the beautiful Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham.

I arrived early as always so that I could scout out pretty areas to photograph these two. In the meantime I had a little photo session with the Mallard Ducks, Anas platyrhynchos, my favorite tree, the Eastern Hemlock, Tsuga canadensis, and the flying Tufted Titmouse, Parus bicolor.

When Mitch and Devon arrived, they brought along a few more creatures, Mitch's very own Sock Monkeys! Naturally, they had to be a part of the photo session because they seem just as in love as Mitch and Devon. It was a beautiful day and a fun photography session. Devon, a yoga teacher in Siler City, even took time to practice in front of the reflecting pond. Thanks for having me there Devon and Mitch!

I love the picture in which you focused on the sock puppets. I found the idea very clever and enjoyable to look at.
