Engagement Photos!

We were so happy to hear that Drew and Giovanna wanted to have their engagement photos taken at the lake.  It really was wonderful for Dave because he has poured his heart and soul (and blood, sweat and tears) into the lake house.  Besides that, it's just a nice setting.  So I'm happy to post some of their awesome photos!

They are a very sweet couple and have been together since college - it's their time now and we are very happy for them and - for us!

Up And Running

Up and running! The  computer - not me! I haven't been up and running for years!

Anyway, I finally got a new computer. It only took me 3 months to get it done : /  But now I'm back in business with all the data transferred and everything. Dave had to swallow pretty hard when I decided to get a Mac Book but it's really awesome for my photos - I can now sync them in the icloud with my phone instead of emailing them to myself or fiddling around with transferring them from my camera. And since we have a wedding coming up and a lot of picture-taking on the horizon, I kind of insisted on this purchase.  It helped that Dave got himself a tractor over my protests a couple of months ago. It's not that I wanted to deprive him of a coveted toy, I just thought it was a pretty dangerous toy. He got it anyway. Which is the way things usually happen around here :o

We spent last weekend at the lake and Drew and Giovanna took over as we were leaving. They decided to have their engagement photos taken there and had a really nice day for it too, thank goodness because it rained the day before.  Everything is still green up there so it's hard to realize that we're in the middle of an awful drought.  We've had some rain but not nearly enough.  Well, it was nice that the sun came out for their pictures - and Drew's mountain biking:

While he was out riding, Giovanna and I took a walk and came up on a horse gathering.  Hundreds of them:

And a sneak peek at the engagement photo shoot :)
