Monika and Derrick’s Engagement Portraits

1 Comment

This past weekend I went down to Little Rock to do engagement portraits with Monika and Derrick. They are getting married in less than a month and will be my first spring wedding of 2010. The weather could not have been better for February with temps around 55 and lots of sunshine. It was such a nice change from the cold weather! We actually got to do outside pictures, which for this time of year is never a given. Here are a few images from the shoot:

This image was taken in front of the Chinese gate in front of the Martial Arts Garden downtown. The bright red makes a great backdrop.

I love this image. We were getting a little too much sun in this location, but I don't think it takes away from the image.
