Today was a day of the unexpected…sortof. I slept in after our very long bike ride yesterday and I had an engagement shoot later in the afternoon. The couple and I had talked about doing a very basic shoot around the downtown area, so I got there early and played a bit with my lens. Once the engagement shoot started, I found out that the bride's dad owned one of the buildings downtown and offered to let us go on the roof. It's not every day that I get to go on top of a 12 story building. It was the highlight of my day!

Optical illusion!

almost a triangle

I may come back to this one and touch it up

I was walking around and saw this tough guy staring at me.

The park is full of strangers…

Time to get to work…

She took him by surprise with the kiss.

I was siked that we got to go up on the roof (see writing below) so much so that I used the word siked

So this was more for my own enjoyment…not really part of the engagement session. I later found out that she gets very nervous looking over the edge.

      Like the odd angle on the last one. The first three abstracts are great, especially number 3, and I love the flower framing of number 5.

      This is a great set. The fact that you could get your couple to stand near the edge when the bride was nervous about heights is a testiment of your ability to put your clients at ease. Then again, you were also able to get that fiesty squirrel to strike a pose!
