Emily and Tom: engaged

Emily and Tom live in Davenport, Iowa presently – where Tom is attending chiropractic school. Since they live such a long way away (I’ve driven up there before – it’s a bit of a hike!), we had to plan their engagement session WAY in advance. Emily was nervous about the weather, and understandably so – we’ve had measureable snowfall by now some years – and watching the news last night, the meteorologist pointed out the record low was ONE DEGREE. One. single. degree. Emily emailed me a couple of weeks beforehand, and asked if we might be able to go the weekend before if the weather looked iffy for the Saturday we had scheduled. 

No need. Last Saturday – our originally scheduled Saturday – was the most gorgeous day EV-ER. I mean, photographers don’t dream of sheep leaping fences. We dream of days like this. Emily and Tom brought along Maddie, their dog, to be a part of the shoot. We wandered the quiet, early-morning streets of the Country Club Plaza, then found some quiet alleys and facades in the Crossroads District. Here’s a sample of what we happened upon. Guys, I can’t wait for your wedding next year!!

…what happens when one dog has her own ideas as to how a photo should be composed!
