I am a huge animal lover, so it is no surprise that a lot of my clients tend to be also. Great minds think alike I suppose! As a result, I always encourage my clients to include their pet(s) in their photo session! They are just as much a member of the family as anyone else, after all! I have put together a list of my top five ways to include your dog in your next photo session and get awesome photos of your favorite furry friend!
As Zach and I pulled out of the parking lot of Central Park in Carmel following Samantha and Travis’s engagement session my cheeks seriously hurt from smiling so much. I guess I should have known this would happen. It had happened the first time I met Samantha during our in person consultation several months ago. I sat there with her mom at Starbucks laughing for what was probably hours. I felt an instant connection to Sam, so it was no surprise when I laughed just as hard with Travis as well.
Zach and I arrived early for Josh and Scott’s engagement session. It was hot out so we decided to kill some time at one of my favorite stores that just so happened to be across the street from where we were to meet. As I perused Silver in the City I glanced up to see that Josh and Scott were there too! Hey, great minds think alike!
Early one Tuesday morning in late March, Zach and I loaded up our suitcases and said goodbye to our pets. I grabbed my camera gear and Zach locked the door. We were headed west.
As Amanda and Jason rounded the corner from the parking garage and headed toward us I felt one solitary raindrop land on my elbow. “Maybe it’ll pass” I thought to myself as they drew closer with each step. After all, I’d been keeping a close eye on the forecast all day. The chances were pretty low and up until this very moment the sun had been shining brightly down on the Butler University campus in Indianapolis. There was no way it could rain.
One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to meet new and fantastic people. I really mean it when I say I see all of my clients as friends and that is so true when it comes to Erynn and Danny. Not only are they absolutely hilarious, but they are both genuine, kind and so incredibly in love. And I mean that kind of love that people write books about. The kind of love that you just can’t forget. It’s magnetic and it’s so very beautiful.
