adventures in throwing balls to dogs who don’t really play fetch

park of roses engagement columbus ohioThis super fun couple brought their pups along to their engagement session, and the way they play fetch had me doubled over cracking up.  It went something like this:

step 1: throw the ball

step 2: dogs chase after ball

step 3: dog in front realizes dog behind is maybe actually chasing him instead

step 4: both run right past the ball and start wrestling with each other

They love to work out together (look at all those muscles!), so we had to throw in a bit of arm wrestling while showing off the ring.

park of roses engagement columbus ohioWhen we first met, I asked them what aspects of their relationship they would like to shine through in their images.  Their answer: fun and laid back.  They make each other laugh so much, I was laughing right along with them, even though I was too far away to hear what they were talking about!park of roses engagement columbus ohio park of roses engagement columbus ohio park of roses engagement columbus ohio A bit of thumb-wrestling made for more laughs…park of roses engagement columbus ohio park of roses engagement columbus ohioAnd we ended with a little family snuggle.

Super excited to see the fun that will come from this wedding!  I love personalizing engagement sessions and hanging out with couples before their big day.  If you’d like to see some more love and personality, come check out more of my couples’ engagement sessions!
