Engagement Photography - me and hunky husband!

A lot has changed since I wrote my last post in May. The biggest event was definitely getting married! :) These are some of the engagement pictures we took of ourselves a few months before our wedding. It's taken me forever to put them, or anything else, up here!

This summer also brought a move into a new apartment with my husband, and my final semester of undergrad studies. I'll graduate in December with a major in English and a minor in History. Right now my world is a flurry of wifely duties (which I simply adore) and scholarly assignments (which I usually also adore, though not in the same way). On today's agenda: write a basic overview of the Great Vowel Shift. Fascinating, isn't it? For me, yes, actually. It is.

But this blog is about photography, not linguistics. I haven't done a lot of shooting on my own this summer, mostly because of the busyness of this summer (my brother got married too, just a month before mine!). I have continued to sell photography at my Etsy shop, and I was also part of the Cathedral Art Show this past month - my first art show ever! It was a success, and a lot of fun.

But my main concentration this summer and fall has been taking engagement and other portraits. This is a relatively new development in my photographic journey, but one I've welcomed and enjoyed thoroughly. My first attempt was when my now-husband and I took these, with a tripod and remote. Since then I've done it several times (except without a remote) and really had a lot of fun. I've really loved the creativity and spontaneity of these kinds of shoots, and I hope to do this very often in the future.

In my next few posts I'll share some pics of my last shoots, assuming the couples don't have any objections. :) Thanks for reading!

love the black and white snuggly close up shot - you looking at his lips and he looking at your eyes - "sigh", so romantic!
