Engagement Story: Candace and Brandon

I am just crazy about this engagement shoot!! Candace and Brandon were so cute and fun to work with. The way we met was a little, um, unconventional. I went to a funeral of a family member of one of my best friends. This best friend, who also happens to be Brandon's best man, introduced us in the parking lot of the funeral home--he made me give them one of my cards. What a friend-- still networking for me even at a funeral (love you J!).

From the beginning, Brandon let me know he was having pains over having to do an engagement shoot. I am sure he is not the first man out there to feel this way. Candace warned him that an engagement shoot every Friday till their May 2010 wedding was part of the package... thankfully for him that is so not true :)

It was a beautiful day to explore the Arboretum--there is so much there to work with. Plus every season the staff changes out the plants for that season so it is always looking different. We started out in the rows of flower beds...

Luckily Candace and I are very persuasive -- Brandon's photo-pain does not seem to be showing in any of the images I captured...
