Ely Roberts is a photographer from San Luis Obispo and when he brought his girlfriend to New York to propose to her he wrote and asked if I'd shoot an engagement session of them while they were in town. I've said it before but I love shooting photographers, haha. They're up for anything and whether they are or not they at least act like they're comfortable in front of the camera.

It was a blast hanging out with Ely and Abby that afternoon and I love the images from the session. Here are some favorites.

If you're a photographer or even just blogger you really need to check out BlogStomp. I've been using their actions to prep my blog images for about a year and a half but they just came out with an App that doesn't need Photoshop to resize, sharpen, create collages, add your logo or watermark, resize and save for web. It's unbelievable. Check it out.

I love this series, haha. Ely was playing around and jokingly got down on one knee reenacting the proposal... I wonder if anyone has ever done that for engagement pictures before?! Haha.

First of all, these photos are awesome. I love your style. Secondly, and sorry for the long story - I stumbled upon your Twitter page after following a couple of local photogs here in MI, and then finding a national photographer who was following you. So I clicked on your link, liked what I saw, and then visited your website. Eli's photos were the first ones I saw on your blog. I went on a mission's trip to Nigeria with him in 2004. I can't believe how random that was. I have found a photo of him that I took with my 2MP PowerShot, sitting on a rock in the middle of the wilderness haha. Anyway, thought that was interesting. Great photos, and I'll continue to follow your stuff.

Thank you for fitting Ely and Abby into your busy schedule. The pictures are so nice. I can't really pick my favorite one, since they are all great! Everyone should know the Lord had Abby picked out for my son, and a dear niece orchestrated them meeting. Thank you, Lord and Hillary!
