It was on a walk with their pup, Millie, at Cox Arboretum Metropark that Max popped the question and asked Emma to be his bride. So it was only fitting that we head back to capture their engagement sessions at the park where it all began!
Max was Emma’s college roommate’s brother, so they saw a lot of each other and eventually realized there was more than just a friendship there. Fast forward to today, and these college sweethearts now have full time jobs and a sweet fur baby… and they are planning a wedding! Miss Millie was a HOOT at the park. She just couldn’t contain her excitement to be out and about with her favorite humans! Photographing dogs is such a gift because they just exude the purest form of joy, but it’s also HILARIOUS because they don’t take posing direction all that well sometimes. 😉
These two are friends with one of our previous couples, which is an awesome bonus because it means we will get to have a mini Kortni and Chris Photography reunion on their wedding day! We never remember, but I need to start getting pictures of all of our previous couples when we see them at future weddings. It’s so fun for us to get to watch their love story unfold from buying their first house to navigating that first year of marriage to welcoming babies and pets and starting the process of growing old together.
Emm and Max, you two are absolutely adorable together. You didn’t stop laughing the entire time we were together, and it’s clear that you have a great time together. I loved getting to meet Mille and see what an awesome life you’ve given her – she is maybe the happiest dog in the world! You two have such positive attitudes and don’t take yourselves too seriously. Can’t wait to celebrate with you both when you officially say “I do” next fall!
