It’s no secret: engagement sessions are some of my favorite sessions to shoot! Especially if I am going to be shooting the wedding for that couple as well. It’s our time to bond, practice our posing, make sure we’re comfortable together, and it’s MY chance to really watch how a couple interacts with each other and store it away for their wedding day portraits! So you can imagine how bummed I was when I met with Taylor and Jason and they told me they had already had their engagement pictures taken! BUT then they told me they were adopting a golden retriever puppy in a couple weeks and suggested a “family” session with their new dog. UM YES!!
We met for our session at the tail end of one of the coldest weeks in Michigan all year and I was super proud of Taylor, Jason, and sweet little Barry for toughing it out as long as they did! Barry was a bundle of excited energy and SO cute! And yeah, all those photos of just Taylor and Jason below? I was wrangling Barry with one hand and shooting with my other hand! We snuck inside for a few more shots in the warmth at the end and I think they are my favorite! I am so excited for Taylor and Jason’s wedding at The Grand Belle in Holly later this year!
