France Part 7: Anniversary Photos

I bought a new toy right before we left for France.  I got a cheap wireless shutter remote for my Canon from Amazon.  I wanted something that would let me take pictures of Cody and me in France with the touch of a button...a hidden button that I could hold in one hand that is out of view in the shot.

I got the Cowboy Studio Wireless Radio Remote and it worked great.  It did exactly what I wanted it to do, and I think I captured some special photos that we will cherish and enjoy for a long time.

One evening before dinner, we dressed and headed to the courtyard next to the church in Tremolat.  I like that we did the anniversary photo shoot in Tremolat because that was our home base and the city is very special to us.  The stone walls were so pretty, and there were these amazing red flowers and yellow roses scattered throughout the place.  We just set up the camera on the tripod and took a few shots in various places around the courtyard.  Nobody was around.  It was mostly an overcast sky, though sometimes we had to wait for cloud cover before continuing the shoot.  We just talked and laughed and enjoyed spending the time together.

I need to get some of these turned into prints so I can frame them.  It's hard to even choose which one(s) are my favorite.  What do you think?  Which shot is the best?

Such good pictures! Hard to choose but I believe my favorites are the second and third ones.

They are all beautiful! The one that caught my eye the most though, is the second to last one of you sitting and Cody standing. LOVE it! What an awesome idea.
