I had the pleasure of meeting Derek and Rachel through a friend of mine and I have to say they are one fun couple. Of course their look is a photographers dream!
We had planned to do this session as fun session with Derek and his bike and a few shots with Rachel. I got a call from Derek a few days before the session and he told me that he decided to propose to Rachel! He wanted to propose during the shoot and surprise her…soo cool, but a little more pressure on me. I then received a call the next day and he said that he couldn’t wait any longer and proposed to her that night, so cool! I of course had to ask how he did it? So here it is…One of Rachel’s favorite holidays is Halloween, so Derek searched all over town to find a pumpkin and since Halloween was over it wasn’t an easy task. Derek loves roasted pumpkin seeds, so that was the “excuse” for carving a pumpkin after Halloween. He carved out one pumpkin and put the ring inside. Well let me tell you, Rachel found a little more than just pumpkin seeds in that pumpkin and of course she said yes!
