Kristen & Danny - Love amongst the Lily Pads

Last month I met this gorgeous couple at a really unique spot to do their engagement pictures.  A good friend of mine's parents have the most beautiful, magical backyard I have ever seen!  Ever since I saw it I always dreamed of taking pictures there.  Lucky for me they extended an invitation for us to come out and use the yard for pictures, and I am so grateful they did!  Between the old wooden swing, the dock on the pond, and the hundreds of lily pads everywhere, it was the most beautiful setting for their pictures!  I loved spending time with Kristen and Danny getting to know them and hearing how they got engaged.  After we took full advantage of all the backyard had to offer, we stopped at a nearby train track to take a few shots.  I especially love the one shot (pictured below) of the couple sitting on the tracks thats in black and white.  So gorgeous!  Do they not seriously look like models?  lol.   After I made this couple do all kinds of crazy stuff : fish for the "perfect" lily pad, sit on a swing that was literally over the water, play on train tracks :-P and run out into a wide open field to get this one shot I was envisioning, we ventured a little ways away to try to catch the sunset.  Even though we didn't get to see the actual sun setting, it was still the most perfect night!  The sky was a beautiful shade of pink and yellow and we had our own special spot in the park to take pictures with their adorable puppy and drink some champagne!  Overall I think it was a perfect evening and I hope Kristen & Danny had as much fun as I did!
