What is up people? Seriously, what is up? You all enjoying your summer’s out there? I sure hope so! Last week just before that dreadful heatwave came through I was able to photograph Billie Jo and Sean’s engagement session. It was the third attempt we made! The rain kept stomping on our shoots but I’m glad we finally were able to shoot because the images are just great! Can I just say I love shooting in downtown? I know I’ve said it before but I just love the urban grittiness I capture when I’m shooting there. All you need is an awesome looking couple like the one I’m about to show you and BOOM, there it is! Make sure you check back sometime in early September for their wedding blog! These guys tie the knot on August 27 at my favorite place of all! I can’t wait to capture them again!
