I've shot on some pretty impressive mountain ranges in the American West...but now I've officially shot on the world's smallest mountain range! And oh boy, did the Sutter Buttes make the best backdrop for Jake and Lisa's engagement session! I could have shot there all day and never ran out of options! 

A few years back, one of Lisa's friends asked her to go to the local fair with her so they could "Go meet our future husbands." And while Lisa didn't meet Jake there, her friend met the mutual friend that would later introduce them. 

Jake had bought a ring and was keeping it under the backseat of his pickup. And one fine Tuesday he was headed home from a neighboring town where he'd picked up a grain drill and decided (his words), "Today is as good as any." So, when he got home he went into the house where Lisa was folding laundry on the couch and mentioned that he needed her to go pick up a horse for him. While she was getting her purse ready he dropped to one knee. 

A few minutes later Lisa was following her brand-new fiance as he drove a tractor down the road...trying to get a good picture of her ring while driving a truck and trailer to go pick up a horse. 

I think Jake found himself the perfect future farm/ranch-wife!

And their fall wedding is going to be so beautiful!
