Amy & Ed...Engagement Portraits

How appropriate that the first day of Olympic competition, I get to photograph an Olympic athlete!? We had talked a little about the Olympics during our session as we walked around...but at some point it came out that Ed was a high jumper in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games! Ooooo ahhhhh! So cool!

Amy is also an athlete. She met Ed many years ago when she was running cross country. Romance on the track. ;-) It's the first time I've had an engagement shoot where there was an element of competition involved. Who took the better pictures? I'm afraid it was a tie - they both did a fantastic job!

Alright - let's get to some of my favorites from their session. We took a walk around the plaza where Ed lived when he and Amy were first dating...sometimes getting drizzled on...sometimes getting rained on. It was so nice and cool - a lovely morning for a shoot.

At one point, Ed tried to eliminate his competition by throwing Amy into the creek. Luckily his evil plan didn't work. ;-)

I'm torn between #10, #17 and #20.
I think I'd be happy with any of those...the bride. :)

Lovely couple. #10 gets my vote, but #8 could be straight out of a magazine. The clairity & color of the first few are rich! Casual portraits at its finest!!

I can't decide between # 2,4,9, 10 & 18. I like them all! Mother-of-the-Bride.

#10 is my favorite. Very nice composition. You can see both tenderness and passion between them in this one.
