What do you say when your own relatives ask you if you can shoot their engagement pictures? I say, heck yeah! So Caitlin and Adam drove down from Sacramento and we took a couple of hours to shoot some images for them.
I had just returned from the Photo Plus show in New York and acquired the LensBaby. For those of you who are not familiar with this little contraption, it is a plastic lens that lets you selectively pick your focal point and then create directional blur in the remainder of the image. I felt that this would be a perfect time to try it out, and I really like the effect that it provided.
I also shot a lot of the images with standard lenses to give them the traditional photos to use in their invitations. Ahhhh...the innocence of young kids in love. :)
