What do I love more than working with a sweet couple who’ve just gotten engaged? A sweet dog-loving couple who’ve just gotten engaged! Hillary and Brodie told me from the beginning that they wanted to incorporate Deacon (their German Shorthaired Pointer) into their photos, and my heart swelled! I was so excited to get to work with these three in some of their favorite hang-out spots.
Besides spending lots of time with Deacon, Hillary and Brodie’s interests are varied. They love catching some Americana music at the Lincoln just as much as they enjoy a good tailgate and Mountaineers or Pirates game on the weekends. But they don’t turn their nose up at dinner at Stanbury, or an outdoorsy adventure or just a night of cozy couch time with Deacon. It was such a pleasure capturing them in different locations for their fall engagement shoot. The light around their house was magical (and their front porch is where Brodie proposed) so I was delighted to snap a family portrait or two there. 🙂
One of the highlights for me was getting to see Deacon bound through a field we were working in, his ears flying wildly. This guy looked like he was about to take off! So happy! I was so tickled to learn that Deacon played a large part in Brodie’s proposal, wearing a sign around his neck at the big moment. So sweet! I’m beyond grateful that my work lets me spend time with folks who love their furry kids as much as I love my Ronon!
