Kim and Taro met like so many other couples, online dating. The unique twist in their story is Kim had signed up that night, and Taro was the first person to message her. It was love ever since- if that’s not fate, I don’t know what is! When I met Kim and Taro via FaceTime almost a year ago, I was so excited to have the opportunity to work with them both. Kim is super sweet and bubbly, and Taro is always smiling (which makes for the cutest combination). We’ve stayed connected on Facebook and Instagram, so when we finally met in person, it felt like catching up with old friends. The day of their engagement session it was drizzling all day long, and I was unnerved at the thought of having to reschedule since it wouldn’t be easy with Kim and Taro living out of town. Luckily, it cleared up shortly before and we were able to get some great photographs at Kirby’s Mill in Medford, NJ. Did I mention there was a special guest at their session? The latest addition to their family, Chairlie. He is such a sweet, excited, and super obedient pup- the combination of a perfect gentleman. My favorite moment had to be when he started biting and chasing his leash while Kim and Taro were romantically strolling along- you’ll see below! I’m so happy to be a part of their big day next October at Blue Heron Pines Golf Club!
This week's question is close to my heart: Can I bring our dog to our engagement session? You're getting married and the two of you are starting your own family. Well, maybe you already have another family member or two- pets! My last two engagement sessions included pups and to be honest... I LOVE it! How could I not? I have a little, furry man at home that stole my heart, Pixel. My husband and I included Pixel in our own engagement shoot.
I think the answer depends on your photographer. I always tell couples that I would love if their pet could join us at the beginning of the engagement session for about 20 minutes and that their pup comes accompanied by a handler that can take the pup home while we finish the engagement session.
