Meet Megan, Aric and Thor!! One of the biggest questions that I get asked all the time is, “can I bring my dog to the session?” My answer is always a resounding YES!! Our dog is such a huge part of our family, and he’s included in literally EVERYTHING that we do (including photos!). I absolutely love it when people bring their pets to sessions and incorporate them. As you can tell by our session these two are in love and they have so much fun together!!! It was a great day! Here are a few images from their session!
A few words from the bride to be:
Q. How did you meet? A. Technically we met in High school, but I didn’t overly enjoy him then. We officially reconnected through mutual friends but had no interest in one another (at least not that we were willing to admit). Just under a year later, after not seeing one another for a couple of month’s, I happened to be out with a girl friend for a few drinks when Aric walked in with a couple of friends. I had just enough liquid courage to run up and grab his butt… hahaha. We texted for a little bit that evening, made plans to go out that sunday (it was a long weekend), and the evening ended. Over the course of the next month, we got to know one another and to both of our surprise, we had similar interests, same sense of humor, and the same wants in life. At the end of that month I already knew i was in over my head and was falling incredibly fast, but we made sure we were both ready to take the plunge of dating and here we are today!
Q. When you first met what did you notice first? A. His smile… that man has this quirky little smile when he knows hes being a brat. But its always a genuine smile, never forced or rehearsed. He is genuine and I cant get enough of him.
Q. How did he propose? A. So I hadn’t bugged him for months about wanting a ring, I honestly didn’t think think that he was going to for a while as our relationship was the first one he had been in since high school. For a man who cannot keep secrets, he kept this one under lock and key. We were laying in bed, and he got up to go to his closet, I figured it was just for some trinket or something random. He comes back and we started talking about all the things we wanted at our wedding (mainly me haha), and he looked at me and said, “Sounds like youve pretty much got it all planed out hey?” I nodded and said “Yep!” And he said, “Well I think you might need this” and popped open the ring box and after me absolutely losing my mind, he asked me and I said yes!
Q. Tell me your favourite thing about him? A. That is impossible to do! Its everything, from his smile and the way he looks at me, the way he treats me and my friends and family, to the way he furrows his brow when hes reading something. The man treats me like gold, he cares for me, protects me, loves every part of me, and has made me fall back in love with myself. He is my favourite thing about him.
Q. If you could give one word to describe him, what would that word be? A. I’ll give you 3 words/phrases i use to describe him.
Genuine True Life-Saving
Q. Your idea of a perfect date? A. Sitting in the hatch back of the bronco, theres a fire a few feet away, Thor curled up beside us, while just watching the world go by with Aric by my side.
A few words from the groom to be:
Q. How did you meet? A. Well we have known each other since high school. Never became friends up until we reconnected 10 years later through mutual friends of ours. One night we ran into each other while out with friends. We started chatting and made plans to start hanging out. About a month later we started dating and now here we are.
Q. When you first met, what did you notice first? A. Her eyes! I love her eyes, i can get lost in them any time!
Q. How did you propose? A. Not your standard proposal. I was teying to plan something but things led a different direction. One afternoon we where just laying in bed chatting about eandom things. I asked her about details of weddings as we had done before. We chatted about it for about an hour when i went over to my dresser (where i was keeping the ring) pretending to grab something trivial. I laid back in bed and let her finish her thoughts. I looked into her eyes and said “well it sounds like youve got most of it planned already” she replied with a cute giggle and a yup! I smiled as i pulled the ring out of my pocket and said “youll need this first” she squeeled, cried and laughed all at once, and then i asked her to marry me.
Q. Your favourite thing about her? A. I love her dedication. She goes 1000% into anything she sets her mind to. From the smallest to the biggest things.
Q. If you could give one word to describe her…what would it be? A. Its hard to put just 1 word to describe her. I dont want to leave just 1 word to sum her up. So ill give you a few.
Caring Quirky Passionate Loyal
Q. Your idea if a perfect date? A. Oh a warm evening out in the mountains by a river or lake, a small fire with our pupper Thor. A beautiful fire side dinner while enjoying eachother and the quiet peace.
