Fantasy Friday ~ Dogs Are People, Too... A Hawaiian Engagement Session

Yeah... I can sometimes be a softie. Seriously, look up! There's a dog in that photo. See that adorable couple with their adorable golden retriever? I mean, how could I resist the cuteness? Not too mention that I am a huge fan of bringing what's important to you into your engagement shoots. For some of you, that means spicing it up with a paint fight or rolling around on an old truck or trashing an old motel room together, and that's fantastic, because it's personal... But, for Michelle and Seung, it's about their love for their dogs, Bailey and Sadie. Sadly, Sadie died about a week before this shoot, but if you scroll down, you'll see how Michelle and Seung paid tribute Sadie without turning a happy day into a sad one. 

Bridey, remember that if you're going to take the time (and that of your photographer) to have an engagement or save the date shoot, then do it right! Make it personal, or don't do it at all. Seriously, look around at all of the photographs you have of each other. Are they the same? And, are they boring? Probably!! So, step out of the box, and make your engagement shoot personal or don't bother. Okay... off my gigantic soapbox. Go look at the FAB pics!
I love how they are looking at each other!!

I am SO going there... I feel like Seung is looking at Michelle, like "Hey girl... What do you say we take this to the grass?"Bailey is wearing a photograph of Sadie around her neck.Awwwwww.... Such a cute family!
Again... this one brought tears to my eyes.LOVE every second of this...
