Julie & Tyler

I had the privilege of doing a pre-wedding practice session with Julie and Tyler on Wednesday night. It was a blast!

Here are a few things that I learned from the shoot:
1. Julie & Tyler are SO in love (and SO darn cute)!
2. Giving direction during a shoot is harder than I thought (even though I knew it would be something I needed to work on...a lot!)
3. Julie & Tyler know how to laugh!
4. Always pack extra batteries for your flash (I totally thought about it the day before, and forgot the day of...ugh! That shouldn't happen again!)
5. I miss having Julie as a co-worker (she is so much fun)!
6. Getting great shots on a stormy Seattle night is not as hard as I thought...when you have great subjects! :)
7. Julie & Tyler are SUPER in love!
8. I had a blast doing my first couples "shoot"
9. I have SO much to learn!
10. I have SO much more to learn after that! :)

As soon as I get my external hard drive set up (correctly, that is...my poor mac is on picture overload right now), I will be able to download the rest of the shoot...and will post more of these two love birds!

Julie & Tyler: Thank you SO much for allowing me the opportunity to "practice" on you guys! You were the perfect subjects for me! I can't wait to get you the rest of your pictures! I also can't wait for your wedding...you two are so in love...it will be a wonderful day!
