alan & connie engaged!

as i mentioned here, in march, i took a trip to socal to shoot my brother alan's engagement.

the weather did not cooperate that day—it rained ALL DAY. and this being my first engagement/portrait shoot ever, i was excited, but totally stressed about it. not having had enough experience, period, i spent the first hour trying to figure out the best way to shoot in the rain. there were definitely some frustrating moments when i couldn't keep my lens dry enough to focus properly. i was so worried that i wouldn't be able to deliver decent photos, and i wanted my brother and connie to have the best engagement photos ever!

anyway, alan and connie were such good sports. despite the rain and wind [and they were freezing], they didn't complain once and were more than willing to go anywhere i suggested, pose, and jump in the rain! so we got through the day somehow and ended up with some nice shots.

despite how stressful and tiring the day was for me, i can't wait to do another shoot!

These are beautiful, Jenny. So many great locations, and the cloudy/rainy weather makes for really interesting light. Pretty darn good for your first shoot. :)

thanks, chris. you're right, the cold, rainy day also meant extra hours of diffused light, which meant more photo ops! :)

I just came across your blog (through instagram) and think it's really inspirational. Having just started out myself, it's nice to know there are people out there going through the same experiences and it's motivating to see how you've evolved over time. Since I'm having a first real shoot next week, this post has really given me courage. Hope it doesn't rain though, don't think I can handle that as well as you. Your pictures look amazing. Thanks for the lovely posts!
