Jarod & Anna's Engagements at Park of Roses + The Pups!

The first time I saw the email

from Anna telling me about her wedding, I got excited..not even knowing if they would hire me yet, but I was determined to shoot this wedding none the less. Luckily, everything worked out and I will be shooting their Flower Farm Wedding in August! But first things first, their engagement session!

To say these two are animal people..would be an understatement. They not only have two Great Danes and a Weimaraner, they also are bee keepers and own chickens as well (I am probably leaving some out too)! Jarod told me they have a hard time saying no to each other when it comes to animals, they almost brought home a pet pig the other day! Now how cool would that have been...an engagement session with a little pig? Ok, I know, I am getting ahead of myself.  

This was my first time having a dog at one of my sessions, let alone three dogs, so it was definitely new territory for me!  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, these two are so fun to hang out with and this park is beautiful!

Great job Jarod!

As we walked up to that tree, I thought, wouldn't it be cool if we found their initials, and bam, first one I looked at!

The wedding is going to be hops and honey themed so I attempted to get a ring shot with a bee in it...needless to say I failed, but I did get a bee!

Jarod got his ring on Etsy, it is made out of an antler and I love it! Stay tuned for the credits.

Thanks to the couple for being so patient with me while navigating all that dappled light :) and to their awesome friend who helped with the dogs! I cannot wait for the wedding in August, it's going to be a stunning wedding!
