that time I took my brother's engagements...

If you read regularly or follow me on social media, you would know that my little brother Alex is engaged. Him and his fiance asked me to take their engagement pictures, and I wont lie, I was so scared to do it. I really enjoy taking pictures, but there is something about being expected to do them for someone else and have them like them that was giving me a lot of stress. I don't know how you photographers do it, I don't! Plus when I showed up, Alex had a peeling sunburn! So the fact that he doesn't look like a red tomato in these is some sort of miracle!

While I have a decent camera, I really have never learned to use it to its fullest capabilities, so I was really nervous. Thankfully these two are so dang adorable, they would have looked great even if I was taking them on my iPhone :)

I thought I would share a few of them with you, and kind of brag about how adorable these two are. I just love them to death. But because I was so nervous I took almost 500 pictures! So these are about 1% of them, HA.

Alex and Wendy met at the University of Utah Library, so we thought it would be cute to take some in there! Then we just took some all over Salt Lake.


These two make taking pictures easy! So happy for them. Oh and I could do a whole post full of the funniest and cutest outtakes. Alex would just start attack kissing her, or make funny faces between bushes and trees we were at. I liked this one at the end of the shoot where he just picked her and up and ran her back to the car :)


 LOVE YOU BOTH!
