I did it!

I officially, unofficially did my first photo shoot today.

After an old high school buddy of mine announced that she was engaged I asked if I could take their engagement pictures. She's an amateur photographer like myself, so I knew she'd be all over it and would be patient as well.

Plus I didn't charge.

Upon her agreeial (is that even a word?), I asked another friend that is getting into photography if she'd like to join me. I was honestly really hoping that she'd be able to. Not only for help and ideas, but also to get her practice too.

See, I learned to share.

So this morning we all met at CSUS to shoot so photos and witness some love. Mandy and I accidentally, not on purpose even wore the same colored shirt, green.

So, here's a sneak peek at what I got...
Later I'll post some of the pictures from my "practice" photo shoot with Kaitlin. She's a good subject!

All the pics you put on facebook looked great! I am super impressed and slightly jealous at how good you & Mandy are! We are so thankful that you offered to do that for us... such a blessing.

So... can I get a disc of photos from you soon? Or will you be editing for awhile? I'd actually like to have some of the untouched photos too, if possible, so I can play around with them on Photoshop. See if I can figure some stuff out.

I love taking pictures, but I also love being in pictures. Which is difficult to do when you're the photographer. So that's why I'm thrilled to have such great pictures of Adam & I! When you pass your camera off to someone for a snapshot, 9 times out of 10 it's too great.

You are very welcome!

Thanks for being my guinea pigs. :)

Yes, I'll get the pictures (edited and unedited) on a disc tomorrow. I edited a few more tonight.

I think once the craziness dies down you, Mandy, and I should take a short drive somewhere and just play around with out cameras and have fun. That's the best way to learn and practice, to just do it.

How does that sound?

Sounds great! That's a wonderful idea.
