Some Shots With The Nikon D600

Josh and Vanessa

My entire family took a day off last week to go on a little day trip with my cousin Josh and his new fiance Vanessa. Josh popped the question last weekend, and I gotta say, I haven’t seen him this happy since…..ever! Anyone who knows me and Josh well knows that we’re not just cousins. […]
