Hyde Park Engagement Session | Samantha and Mike (and Duncan!)

October 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

  When Samantha and Mike asked if they could bring Duncan along for their engagement session, of course I said, "YES!" Being that I have three dogs of my own, I love when we can incorporate dogs into portrait sessions.  Pets bring such a fun and loving dynamic to any relationship! I had so much fun getting to know Samantha and Mike (and Duncan!) that day and can't wait for their wedding! 

  • We met by chance after a Red's game at a nearby bar. Although we went to the same high school, we were a year apart and didn't know each other. I spontaneously picked up an extra ticket for the Red's game just hours before and he had decided to go out with a friend after a long day at work. Our two friends knew each other and that is how we were introduced. This was September 27, 2013 (approximately 3 years before our wedding date of September 24, 2016).
  • It was a few days after my 24th birthday and my friends and I had planned a dinner out at a local restaurant. Little did I know they were in on the plan... When we returned home from dinner, Mike was waiting at the door to our apartment building saying he was lying about the birthday present he had said was broken and that it's actually ready now. When I walked in to our apartment, I saw he had created 4 shadow boxes filled with memories. He picked up a fifth, empty shadow box and said this one is for all the memories to come and then popped the question. My friends were all there to take videos and cheer.
