Cassy and Cameron: Love at the 4H Fair

It’s my favorite week of the year, the week of the 4H Fair. Now, if you’ve never waited with bated breath for the arrival of the fair, then I feel sorry for you. There are fluffy animals to be pet, elephant ears to be eaten, and rides to be ridden (not to mention, trash cans within reach in case the combination of fair food and carnival rides doesn’t agree with your system).

Last year, I photographed Cassy and Cameron at the fair, and I figured now would be as good a time as any to share their engagement session, since it’s not only the week of the fair, but also, their wedding week. I’m super excited to get these two back in front of my camera this Saturday.

Thanks to my friend Kat Braman for inviting me to shoot this wedding with her in sunny Florida, and allowing me an escape from a chilly Michigan October.

jen - Wow – how stunning is she in the juicy orange dress!? Love the shot of the adorable boy in the aisle during the lush ceremony.

Rob Dodsworth - This is absolutely stunning! Really elegant work.

Yes, you can bring your dog.

Probably the #1 question I get asked about engagement sessions isn’t advice on outfit planning or location choices, it’s “Can we bring our dog?”

So let me just say, unequivocally, yes, you can bring your dog. Here’s Marybeth and Jim, and their dog, Larry.
