Tips for Engagement Pictures With Dogs

  • Ask Anything

There is one thing that can make an engagement session instantly adorable and also add a ton of stress at the same time! Normally when we shoot engagement sessions, our couples show up with a little bit of nerves just because they are about to be professionally photographed for the first time! Nerves are normal! However, adding a DOG into the situation adds a whole new level of stress to the situation. I totally get it, Michael and I would have had Bokeh in our engagement pictures if we had had him back then!!

  • Neighborhood Capitol Hill Engagement Pictures | DC Wedding Photographer

We arrived to their quaint little neighborhood on Capitol Hill. I’ve always said that I would never live in a location like that because it just isn’t my style. However, when you start hearing about what life is like for other people living in unique areas like this little, it peeks my interest! Michael and I absolutely loved our time up there a few days ago and I think it’s safe to say that we have a much better understanding of just how AWESOME it can be to live like that!

5 Tips to Consider for Resale

Michael and I have owned two homes since being married and in both cases, we received REALLY great resale advice. It’s funny, when you’re a newlywed, people will offer you TONS of advice about EVERYTHING. Some of it goes in one ear and out the other and some sticks with you!! During our home build two years ago, we received some awesome advice about making decisions with resale in mind and I’m sharing a few of them today!
