This engagement session will definitely go down as one I’ll NEVER FORGET!! Shannon and Matt are one of my sweet 2018 couples and we did their engagement session at Rock Meadow a few weeks ago! When I first met with Shannon and Matt for drinks this past winter, Shannon told me that they were hoping to include both their dog and their cat in their engagement session. I have to admit that I was definitely skeptical! I photographed a few cats (or I should better put it that I tried to photograph a few cats, but didn’t have much luck!) back when I was first getting started in photography. I thought I wanted to be a pet photographer, but very quickly decided that I wanted to specialize in just dogs. But never say never because here I am posting pictures of a cat with its best dog friend on my blog!! Walter is such a handsome cat and we captured some awesome portraits of him!! Granted, every time we took Walter out of his cage for his photo opp, he would very slowly walk away from us! But somehow, we still managed to captured a great portrait of Brody and Walter together and don’t even get me started on their adorable matching bow ties!! I had such a blast at this engagement session and I think I stopped laughing the whole time! Shannon and Matt, I’m a little bit obsessed with you both and Brody and Walter and I absolutely can’t wait until next December for your wedding!!
I owe one HUGE THANK YOU to one of my 2019 brides, Rachel, for being the absolute best dog and cat wrangler I could ever ask for! You were invaluable to making this engagement session a success and I so appreciate that you would do whatever it took to help get the shot! Even if that included you playing with a cat ribbon for over an hour, saying Brody and Walter more times than you ever probably imagined you would, carrying all the bags and for just making an absolute fool of yourself to make Brody AND Walter look at me! I absolutely can’t wait for Shannon to repay you the favor when we photograph yours and Dan’s engagement session! I’m sure Moose and Teddy will require the same ridiculousness that you provided for Brody and Walter! 🙂
Be sure to follow Brody and Walter on their instagram page @brodyandwalter!! They’re the cutest cat and dog duo around!! (them and my other 2018 couple’s cat and dog duo @kiraandbinx!!)
