J&S teaser

I've only uploaded about 1/4 of the pictures so far, but I really wanted to get a teaser post in as I have a busy week ahead of me and I don't know when I'll get through them all!

This is by far my favorite engagement shoot I've ever done. I've never had so much fun :). Love you both.

Note: These 3 were all taken with lenses I rented for the occasion, the first two with a tilt-shift (my new favorite thing ever) and the last with a fish-eye.

J&S proposal!!!

While in Mexico S had the brilliant idea to officially propose to J and I got to be in on the secret!!! Oh my, it was so much fun. We were supposed to do it Saturday night during a sunset beach shoot, but with rain, rivers flooding the beaches, private beaches, etc, we ended up taking several taxi's, a bus, and walking in the rain a lot and eventually gave up and went to dinner at an amazing restaurant over looking the town. We did get some pretty cool sunset pics when the rain lightened up, but the beach was far too crowded and not that nice for a proposal.

J said we had her 100% convinced she'd be going home without a ring (yes, we did do TONS of engagement pics before he actually proposed). She'd been expecting a proposal on Saturday, so it was fun that we were able to throw her off. Sunday morning we got up at sunrise and went down to the beach. I was able to get her away from S for a few minutes (she said I should win an oscar for my acting abilities :) ) and when he came back to get us I ran ahead of them so I could capture this:

It was perfect. She kept yelling into the ocean "I'm engaged!!!!" and she couldn't stop smiling!

You can check out her whole story here. Read it, she's a wonderful writer and it's a great story!

To those who know the lucky couple, please remember to refrain from using 'that groom's' name :)

Snorkeling and the little mermaid

This is me with J&S in Puerto Vallarta. It was the most amazing vacation!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to go! I have tons of pictures to post and their engagement shoot(s) will have to be broken up into a few posts :). J was my freshman roommate, and remains in the top 3 for favorite (out of 32).

First, here are a couple of pictures 'J' took.

Yes, we all look like cretins from the sea. This was before we attempted to snorkel in water that was far too green and S and I decided we weren't very good swimmers. This is one of the few pictures of me, isn't it so flattering??

We found this rock and wanted to do 'Ariel' pictures.

similar to this, no? We couldn't remember the exact pose...

There will be much blogging in the next few weeks, but I have a busy schedule ahead, including leaving for Utah in 2 days! Believe me, by the time I'm done you'll feel like YOU just got back from Mexico. Have a happy Monday everyone!
