the best engagement portrait

August 8th, 2014

How’s this for the best engagement portrait?  Perfect pose: relaxed yet intimate.  Taken in a beautiful setting, close to nature, with a huge full moon.  Cute outfits (love that dress!).  And that park bench is where they got engaged.   This one is a keeper!
