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!
