Engagement Photos: Nick & Monique

On Saturday I got to be a Photographer! :) I spent a few hours with my husband's cousin Monique and her fiance Nick and we went to about 4 or 5 different locations to take photos. They turned out pretty nice! Here are a few of them.

At the end of the day I ended up with over 600 photos which I narrowed down to about 300. Needless to say, they have LOTS to choose from!

This was my 2nd time doing engagement photography. However the first time I did it I used a regular point and shoot digital
camera and this time I used my Nikon D-40.

It was a BEAUTIFUL day and very warm (for this time of year) , it was in the 40's! Had we done it anytime earlier we would have been freezing cold in single digit degree weather or in the negatives. The weather on this day was a huge blessing! I had so much fun taking these photos - someday I hope to be able to do this regularly.
