Engagement of Echo & Nick

I’ve known Echo since she was in elementary school. She was and is such an interesting person, formed of an unusual mixture of race and culture, including native American, and incredibly beautiful as a result. She is thoughtful and easy, and when a little younger would spend time in the kitchen helping us cook dinners. She recently left me a message saying that she wanted to discuss something, and it turned out to be that she was engaged. I have very little experience with engagement photography, but was willing to give it a try and maybe give her and her betrothed Nick some engagement pictures. We met at the butterfly garden in the Holden Arboretum on a very windy early evening, and almost everywhere we went there were abundant opportunities for beautiful photography. They say that their wedding is nearly a year away. Congratulations to them both.
