Default I got engaged today!!!

Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce that I got engaged today after many many years of waiting to my Egyptian.... well now fiancee (still sounds strange). I'm over in Egypt for 3 weeks with my parents for all the formal things that take place here so it's pretty exciting so say the least. I've not really taken any photos of her yet this trip as we've been crazy busy sorting everything out, but hope to soon. We've been also looking at studios to do our official engagement photos, this is an interesting process as I'm probably a bit more fussy than most. Some work really sucks but think we have found a good one. I will add some more to this thread over there next few weeks.

Here is a shot taken on the SX1 by a waitress.

With your talent, I'd be Very scared to be your wedding photographer. I was very picky myself, and was also let down by three things from our photographer:

1. He shot with film (not a huge deal, but I wanted some JPEGs at the least)
2. He had the date imprinted on our prints (I guess this will help me remember in my later years )
2. When the battery died on his camera, for some reason it changed the date imprint to the next day! So various shots in our album have the WRONG date imprinted on them (dang, looks like there's still a chance for me to get the date wrong when asked by the Wifey 20-30 years down the road).

Do you have a date set for the ceremony?
