something new and exciting!

i was recently approached by an old friend about shooting her engagement photos. i had known Liz since middle school, but have lost touch since graduation...until we reconnected again recently, mostly at the most random of times.

needless to say, i was super nervous since i had never met her fiancee and had never taken on a project like this before. yea, i have taken photos on assignment a family portraits, but this is HUGE! (to me at least). when Liz approached me on the subject, i suggested we meet so we could all get to know each other a little better and talk about what directions they would want me to take. Liz expressed complete faith in my eyes (amazing!) and i began walking them around town to show them some places that would be a wonderful backdrop. we all had a blast! i got to know Liz a little better (she's a blossoming crafter and is making her save the dates all by herself!) and Corey better as well (he's a history/weather buff!...whenever we talked about a city, the first thing he's mention is the weather there! ha!)

as always, i had my trusty camera and so i started taking test shots. i'm so glad i did, because they turned out great! lets hope Liz and Corey thinks so!

test shots 2
(Liz is a ham!)

test shots 1
(they are both teachers...but how that pen on in his hand, i will never know)

test shots 3
(my favorite shot of the day)

test shots 4
(we found this great tree)

test shots 6
(Liz has gorgeous eyes and i'm hoping to get some great shots of them)

what do you think guys? too amateur? i guess i could take some pointers from my new internet friend Ica who takes fabulous photos. what do you think Ica?

oh ps - Liz & Corey! i can't wait for our date!

I love love love the one in front of the red doors. It's so sweet, and you can really see they're equals, which is unusual in wedding/engagement photos. Well done!
