I have no talents. Really. But I do have a lot of talented friends. Maybe you could say my talent is making friends who are talented.
And my talented friends are also very helpful. One such person is Kesila, who offered to take engagement pictures of Devin and me. I'm not quite sure what one does with engagement pictures, but I never turn down free offers of anything, so we gratefully accepted hers.
We met on Saturday to take the pictures. I knew things wouldn't go well because, as I mentioned before, I'm not photogenic. And Devin won't sit still for 5 seconds and also has a problem with seriousness. We were somewhat doomed from the start.
However, SOME of the pictures turned out well. Here is what we have so far. Keep in mind these aren't touched up yet.
A good one, though I might look a bit evil:
Not sure why we decided to act this way, but it's certainly easier to goof off than act like terribly serious and important engaged people:
I like this one because it seems like a picture taken by someone who was spying on us, hiding behind something:
A big smooch. Sadly we are facing the camera the wrong way and missed a good opportunity to show off my engagement ring bling. But I like this ring too. It's also from Devin:
And then we cut the session short due to the camera's fussiness with lighting, so we still have some more smiling and cuddling to do in a future session.
