Keeley and I met a few years ago when I photographed her best friend Emily‘s wedding. In fact, at that wedding I remember thinking to myself “that woman is freakin hilarious! I love her vibe!”, so when she inquired about her wedding I was excited!
Turns out these two are passionate about a lot of awesome things! They love, love, love their dogs, and they wanted to include them in the engagement session. Keeley loves Harry Potter, Eric is supportive. Eric loves being a Survivalist, Keeley is supportive. They both workout and in fact Eric is a Ninja Warrior! This meant that the engagement session had a ton of things it could feature, honestly? I love what we did!
We wanted to have some cute pictures of Eric + Keeley dressed up with their pups. I love that they got adorable floral collars for the dogs. They were so well behaved! It was adorable.
We had to throw in a few Harry Potter pictures!! Eric was a great sport, considering it’s definitely not his thing! But he looks interested, right?? We will make him a fan one of these days!
This is the theme we put the most thought into! Keeley + Eric set up a tent, a fire pit, got their dogs ready, everything! We joked before the session about getting a faux deer to roast over the fire…and when Keeley ordered it, it came in much smaller than anticipated! We laughed and made the best of this tiny little stuffed deer.
I also learned that I am definitely going to go to their home if the world ends because they will be prepared 😉
Although Keeley doesn’t love Chick-Fil-A, this is where these two had their first date. It was fun snapping a few pictures of them sharing a milkshake and reminiscing about where their relationship started.
We ended the engagement session with them working out and racing each other! While at the park, they befriended some kids, who decided to race with them. It was a ton of fun! Plus Eric got to show his Ninja Warrior skills. I am hoping he breaks them out on his wedding day!
