So in love

(click to see bigger)

My friend from high school recently got engaged. He called and asked me (which I am still in shock about) to take his engagement pictures this past weekend. I'm still so new at the whole picture taking thing that it shocks me that people think that I am good enough to take THEIR pictures. Not to mention when people I KNOW ask me. It's such an honor.

I've known Rob since he was in 3rd grade. He and my sister were in the same class until they graduated (and then @ LU too, so 4 more years!). We all went to a TINY Christian school and everyone knew everyone. I graduated with his older brother.
This was the first time I met his adorable fiance, Kirsten. She is SO sweet and kind and funny and adorable. Plus, she loves Battlestar, Harry Potter and Firefly. Oh, yeah! A girl after my own heart.

They were so much fun to shoot. Completely in love. No poses here (I HATE posed pictures). I just told them where to stand and let them be themselves. Or I said "can I get a shot of your ring?" and this is what they did...

Can't you just FEEL the love in this shot....

Oh, there are more to come, don't you worry. Just wanted to get a couple up for them to see.

Thanks, guys! I had so much fun.

Wow! Kirsten and I just saw this post. I'll quote her reaction: "Awwwwww!" I'll leave it up to you to determine what that means, but I'm pretty sure she's stoked.

Yup, he did, R. Good memory.
