I think it is quite appropriate that the first set of photos on my blog are engagement photos for my dear friend and photography partner, Paul and his fiancee, Bethel. They got engaged on July 4 and we just went out on Sunday to get their engagement photos taken.
Paul and Bethel are a fun couple, and as you will see in the photos, they are very much in love. We went to a local garden and wandered around, all the while praying the rain would hold off. Of course, in Orlando on a summer afternoon, it wasn't likely. What a blessing it was that the rain did indeed hold off until after we were done and that other than the constantly changing lighting, we had weather that was conducive to our goals.
Here are a few of my favorites from the day:
They did a little walking . . .
And a little kissing. . .
A sweet kiss on the hand. . .
They even did some dancing
An experiment with a silhouette
This one is my favorites from the day. We happened to come across these two turtles having an, um, intimate moment and so we had to get this photo. . .
After a quick change of clothes, we got some more pictures. Notice how comfortable Bethel is leaning on his shoulder. . .
A sweet kiss on the forehead
Do they look happy together or what?
I see you!
A final favorite to share with you.
Paul and Bethel, what a fun afternoon this was! I can't wait to photograph your wedding!
