Danielle + Adam

My cousin Danielle and her fiance Adam met with me last Sunday for a fun engagement shoot downtown. I was excited because it's always fun to hang around with friends and photograph them, plus I get to make them do the things I want them to do :) WARNING: I've known D for all her life, and Adam for several years, so needless to say I have a lot of favorites! It's easy to be partial to a lot of them :)
We started off in the parking garage between the Landing and the Arch grounds:

the light was nice in the stairwell, which was a bonus because - if you remember last Sunday - it was raining! Danielle and Adam were game and so was I, so the challenge was set!


she even had cute shoes [my kinda girl] but I'm sure they were soaked!


They rocked it, though - I'm really happy with the results! After all - I had no idea how they'd turn out because I haven't done a shoot in the rain before :) Sprinkles, yes, but this was a full rain!

she brought a fun umbrella and we went to work


I really like this one!




. . .some goofing around. . .


I love how you can see the water run down the arch :)




DEFINITELY a favorite - it's hard to do something 'different' with the arch :) I love how reflective it is when it's freshly cleaned and/or still wet!


If you've been following my blog for a while, you know I love to play with umbrellas :)


I'm really proud of this shot! Luckily for us the garage was mostly empty, and the 'H' was open [D's new last name will be Hosp] Thanks to my pal Tracy for hanging out in the rain with us and for holding the light for me for this shot:)




I bought the shutter shades specifically for these two! I knew they'd be up to having fun with their photos!




hahaaa! I had to get the shots in quickly between bouts of laughter :)




the rain had let up, but the cobblestones were still shiny - I love this shot!




another favorite :)





Their wedding is in August and I can't wait! I get to be a bridesmaid for the first time!! You'll have to stay tuned to the blog to see some pics of their beautiful wedding, and maybe a few pics of me in action while wearing a dress and heels :)

Love the wide angle black and white one with the umbrella! Looks like the Eiffel Tower should be there in the background somewhere. Very Fun!!
