Kate & John are getting married today!
We got together for their engagement session back in April, the weekend after Kate rode in the MS 150. I think it was so fabulous that she made the ride – it is on my list of things to do someday! When I first met with Kate & John, Kate told me how important it was that they include Bear Dog in their engagement session. Once I saw how cute he was, I completely understood!
Of course, just like all dogs at photo shoots, Bear was not willing to pose at all at first. I always advise to bring a handler for the dog and to bring two or three of their absolutely most favorite snacks. You know, the ones they always go for. What happens every time? They want nothing to do with those snacks. I can’t get them to look at me at all. So we decided to take Bear for a walk, wear him out a little bit. The original plan was to include him in a few shots and then take him to their friend’s house while we wrapped up the session. Instead, we walked Bear, walked around the nearby neighborhood, and used the yards that we found there as the backdrop for our shots. It was wonderful!
I’m looking forward to their wedding later today – I just know it is going to be beautiful!
