On the Other Side of the Lens

Soooo...Mary and I got to have our engagement session last night with the incredible David Jay!!! It was UNBELIEVABLE! The Awesome Brett Austin came out with us and captured some video footage of the shoot as well...and together they got some AMAZING stuff!! We are so blown away and blessed by them! Thank you guys for everything!

DJ had suggested shooting our pictures at night... which we were totally down for! But what none of us knew was that there was going to be a huge downpour just as we were about to shoot....BUT we were all up for a little adventure so we went with it!! I think the results speak for themselves!

How cool is that???!!!! You two are total super stars!!
DJ once again is unbelievable… most photographers would have run and hid from that type of weather but he took advantage of it !
Way too cool for words. I’m so pumped for you guys!!!
