Cady and Micheal were a fantastic couple to spend the evening with while we captured their engagement session. The event was an outdoor photo session captured at the Sugar Creek Covered Bridge in Glenarm, Illinois and Washington Park Botanical Gardens in downtown Springfield. They met when both were employed by a local car dealership and Cady's desk was moved to the service department while the accounting department underwent renovations. Micheal laughed as he retold the story and it made me smile just thinking about it. She said she always eyed him, but thought he had a girlfriend because he talked about spending time with Autumn. Autumn is the smaller black dog in the photographs. Needless to say, I'm pretty sure it was all cleared up! Both avid dog lovers, we decided to include them in the session as part of the family. Here are some great tips to consider when including pets in photographs. It was a beautiful evening, and a pleasure getting to know these two in anticipation of their upcoming summer wedding.
P.s. A special shout out to the people behind the scenes that help make events like this happen. These two wonderful folks met us at the park and played the role of Dog Whisperers so the above images could be captured. Thanks so much for all your hard work! It was definitely not a "walk in the park" (haha), but really paid off. Thanks again!
