Christa and Jon

I didn't think this was something I was ever going to do, so its probably a good thing the request came last minute and I didn't have much time to think about it.  This kind of photography always scared the crap out of me.  Shooting something I only get one chance at, and not a lot of time.  Dealing with "models"... I can only imagine what a nightmare that could be.

When I was asked last Friday if I wanted to take some engagement pictures for a couple, with about 15 minutes notice, I didn't have time to think.  So I said yes.  When I went downstairs to meet them, all I said was that I would give them something better than nothing.  I like to set the bar low. 

Christa and Jon aren't strangers, but it was still weird for me to do an "official" shoot like this.  Lucky for me they made it really easy.  No instruction, no direction necessary, no acting.  Oh but I did have to hold Christa's jacket, that was pretty awful...

We were only out for about 15 minutes but when it was all said and done I was happy with how things turned out.  I might actually think about doing it again.  It didn't hurt that Jon and Christa made it easy.  Hopefully they like what came of it!

Thanks to Jon and Christa for making this happen, it was fun! 

Here's a couple more from the alley...
