I love it when a couple chooses to include their fur babies in their Engagement Session. I have been a fan of Great Danes since I was a little girl, so getting to hang out with Liz’s Gracie girl was the highlight of my day…I mean besides hanging out with Liz and Josh! Lol!
Liz and I first met over coffee at my fave coffee shop, Harvest Coffee Bar. She brought Grace along since Grace is her service dog. Liz was in a terrible accident a few years ago and it is a complete miracle that she is walking around, talking and LAUGHING her way thru life. She is incredibly vibrant and passionate.
I will never forget how I felt as Liz recounted the moment she knew she wanted me to be her photographer. She told me that since her accident she didn’t have very good control of her emotional responses to things, and when she really loved something it may her cry. Not in a bad way, but a joyful way. She said she cried when she saw the 7F Lodge for the first time, and immediately knew that was her venue, her dress was the same way…and when she saw my website. Que the tears!
Sitting there hearing about her hopes and dreams, how her and Josh met, and even about her accident…I knew Liz and Josh were an RDP Couple and I couldn’t wait to meet Josh at their Engagement Session.
After finishing our coffee, we walked outside and Liz surprised me by taking off Gracie girls working vest so that I could pet her!! It is so cool how these amazing animals are trained to be there for their humans. Grace can SMELL when Liz is about to feint or get dizzy and will step in front of her to make sure she doesn’t get hurt. It is really just so cool!
Liz and Josh were SO MUCH FUN during their Engagement Session! You can tell they truly love each other. They danced in between poses, and were whispering little sweet nothings (and probably a few jokes since they giggled between each other quite a bit). We had a blast talking about life, wedding plans, holiday plans and all things in between.
Liz & Josh, I had the best time with you guys, I cannot wait for your Wedding!
Liz grabbed a few shots with me and Gracie girl! She was my assistant for a minute and a good girl during the session!!
