A Snapshot of Love

On Saturday I had the opportunity to take a couple's engagement pictures, and I tell ya... what. a. treat. I very much enjoyed hanging out with these two! They made my job way easier than I expected... they were simply SO in love and simply SO into eachother that they hardly even noticed I was there!  :)

Here are a few of the pics...

We had to trek through a good amount of snow to get to the barn where our next set of pics would be... and it made for quite a scene! In hindsight a snowmobile would have been considerably faster, though maybe not as entertaining!!

Thanks again Nico and Cornelia... I hope you had as much fun as I did! 

*** The only other engagement pics I've done was YEARS ago for my brother and sister-in-law! I still smile every time I think of that day! We simply tromped around the country side stopping at any and all locations that looked good! I was preggo with Alia, climbing up on anything that would hold me... and Josh and Erin were just a delight to take pictures of!! (It helps that Erin has helped Josh perfect his "picture smile!!") I absolutely LOVED how the pics turned out... even though I was only using my ole' 35mm SLR to capture the moment back then - no trial and error allowed! At any rate... I've enjoyed the reminiscing!


  1. Renee! These are all fantastic! What a lucky couple they are to have SO MANY great shots to choose from!

  2. one word: WOW!!!! You make me so jealous of how you got some great shots and had some great ideas! Photography is going to be the next business idea for Renee :)

  3. Great pictures Renee! And I disagree with your statement that you only did one other set of engagement shots. I have a picture on my wall to prove otherwise! -Rhonda

  4. Really Rhonda? I'm sorry! I just really didn't remember doing yours... I guess it's been a few years, eh?! :) That must have been when I was in DTS then? The fact that they are on your wall is at least a good thing... I'm a little nervous to know how they turned out! :)

  5. Thanks Amanda! But I just don't think I wanna do the business route... even the small amount I charged for these pics made me anxious! It's a whole new game when people are paying for pics, eh?! I know I've been disappointed a time or two of how our pics have turned out, and even more disappointed that I paid $$ for them. SO... for now it's all fun and games! With LOTS of learning mixed in for good measure!

    Any leads on a new camera for you?!?!

  6. THESE ARE GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You did such a great job Renee!!!!
