Asked by the Dogs: "Mom, Will You Marry Dad?"


Will you marry dad?

That’s what the sign said.

I was asked to be a part of a very special photo session. Dan wanted to ask his girlfriend to marry him and he wanted their dogs Jaxon and Teddy involved. Jaxon, a 6 year old lab is his girlfriend’s dog and Teddy is his 3 year old newfoundland.

I was over the moon about helping him. I was THRILLED when I learned that the dogs were a lab AND a newf.

We did the shoot at Freedom Park and there were lots of cheers and well wishes when people saw what we were doing. It was so much fun!

This was a last minute shoot and we actually had to move up the time we were meeting because evening thunderstorms were threatening. It’s a good thing we did because it poured not long after we finished.

Dan used an 8x10 mounted print of the photo above to propose. He also ordered a huge 30x20 photo of the dogs to surprise her with as well.

Nice job Dan! You know I love a guy who will use his dogs on such a momentous occasion.

Here are two more from the shoot. Teddy looking all dignified and Jaxon snoozing at the end.

If you have a request for photos that isn’t the norm, ask. If I can help, I will. #bestjobever #shesaidyes
