As you know I got a fancy new DSLR camera awhile ago and I've just been dying to take pictures of anyone and anything. 
My friend Brittany is getting married in July and needed engagement pictures so she kindly let me do them!
I just need practice and experience so it was a great learning experience. I should have used some different settings, but they turned out pretty well. 

What do we think? Am I terrible and I should stop immediately?

No! You should never stop if you love it!

These are super sweet, and great for your first time. I'm impressed!

One of the best things I did when I started out was joining Clickin' Moms (I hate the name but it's really great!). It's a forum of mostly professional photographers, but they are willing to encourage and help you. You can ask questions or search the thousands of threads and tutorials. My favorite part is the serious critique where you throw an image up and a whole community of pro's pick it apart. It sounds terrible, but it's great for growth, and they usually point out the good too!

It's only $50 a year, and I just can't recommend it more highly! http://www.clickinmoms.com/amember/signup.php

P.S. This is totally not sponsored, lol.
