Yesterday evening I headed over to the Marine Corps Memorial, more popularly known as “Iwo Jima” to shoot Nikki & Peter’s engagement portraits. They are a fabulous couple who are getting married on this year’s most popular date, 7/7/07. This particular date has created something of a phenomenon in the wedding industry…literally everyone is booked, it’s like there aren’t enough vendors around to take care of all of the brides who want to get married on this date. Luckily though Nikki and I managed to find eachother and I’m really looking forward to their wedding. Here are a few images from our session.

This turned out to be a terrific “D.C.” location since you can see all of the monuments from up on the hill as well as Arlington Cemetary…all from the same location. Can you spot the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial in the background? These were lit by the sun like fireballs at this point so I shot in RAW (as usual) and used layers in order to get the right exposure for the couple as well as the background. I just love the magic of photoshop! icon smile Nikki & Peter’s Engagement Session
