Photo shoot

Yesterday evening, Kelly and I drove up to some private gardens in Baltimore for an engagement photo shoot with our wedding photographer. The shoot was a lot of fun. The quality of the sunlight was apparently perfect. The shoot lasted just over half an hour and I gained a solid appreciation of those people who have to sit through all-day shoots. We brought a blanket (as we were instructed) and photos were taken of us on the blanket. There were photos of us walking through parts of the garden. Photos of my holding Kelly and giving her a piggy-back ride. It was warm out and I kept having to wipe the sweat from my forehead.

I was hamming it up, through.

I was pretty amazed at how quickly it all went. But we had fun and it gave the photographer an opportunity to get a feel for taking pictures of us, which will help her on the wedding day.
