Rain, Rain, Go Away! I am SO pleased to be sharing with you yet another AMAZING couple, Marguerite and John, and the fun, wacky, rainy day we spent together at the Chautauqua Institution, Chautauqua, NY. I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to working with Marguerite and John again. I first met them during their engagement session here in Buffalo, NY. I knew right away, from their loving, open, giving demeanor, that this was my ideal Couple. It’s so nice to be able to give a little direction, then step back and watch what unfolds.

How they met and the Proposal

Marguerite and John first met during a summer in Chautauqua about ten years ago. After years of occasional meetings during group events, John asked Marguerite out on a date. When he picked her up, it turns out that he’d put together a surprise picnic by the lake! They began seeing each other regularly after that. As for the proposal, this is what Marguerite had to say,

“A few days after my birthday, we decided to have a picnic down by the lake, and after settling in our spot he managed to get me to stand up so he could propose. Funny story – as he’s on his knee, a dog that was running around in the park came over and started eating our food! We didn’t really care at that point…”

I mentioned before that it rained….well, it turned out that the rain really didn’t matter. Marguerite and John had me for the whole day. This meant that I arrived early, and had so much flexibility with the schedule, that as we kept an eye on the radar, we planned all the major photographic events around the downpours. Hurray for full day coverage! Hint, Hint.

Congratulations and thank you again to Marguerite and John for inviting me to be a part of their special day! I sincerely feel honored to have worked with you both and wish you all the best for the future.
