Scenic B&W

This weeks contest over at iheartfaces is scenic B&W.  I really love this picture.  It is of my college roommate who remains a best friend even after graduation and now living over 3000 miles away, and her now husband.  This is from their engagement shots I took and these are fresh--Nate gave me the honor of being there for my friend's big moment and documenting it all as it happened in Victoria, Canada.  It was a special day and one I will never forget as my friend said yes to a man that has made her a wonderful husband.
I chose this picture because I have always loved the background so even though my friends are the focus, for me the background really makes this picture wonderful.  I also chose to enter this weeks contest  because they asked for it to be black and white and as a photographer I really need to work on my black and white conversions.  So, I played around with it a bit and this is what I got.


  1. Great picture. Love that the couple is the in the foreground and the boats in the back are also a great part of it!


  2. I adore the background...what a great shot!

  3. my eyes are drawn both to the couple & to the scene behind them. great job on this pic :o)
