First Slideshow at an Engagement Party

Yesterday we headed down to New Jersey for a seriously rockin' engagement shoot with Melanie & Brett before their engagement party that night at the Paris Inn. We had a few minutes after the shoot before we had to head off to the party... so we pulled out our favorites, ran em through ShowIt and were ready to go.

We *always* do slide shows at our weddings and they've been huge for us...but this was the first time we've actually gotten to do an engagement slide show at an event. The response was awesome! Right after we showed it we got approached about doing another wedding in Europe (we're going to Wales this September for one). What a great way to get people excited about you before you ever show up at the wedding. I think we're gonna try to find a way to do this from now on!!

This shoot was by far one of the coolest we've ever done. Melanie & Brett were so comfortable with each other & really knew how to work the camera like the total rock stars that they are. We got to try some new things & really kick it up a notch. Check it out!
