My personal experience with pets is that they make life better. And sometimes, they make it a little more interesting or complicated than you want, just like kids or spouses. Guava, the Maltese, looks like a little angel, but he has a mischievous side too. These gorgeous dog-friendly engagement photos were taken in Honolulu by Melissa of VIVIDfotos.
From Melissa: “Valerie and Ben decided to bring along Guava for their engagement photo session because it just wouldn’t be complete without their fur baby. Guava was such an adorable white fluff ball, and he was like a lil model posing for photos!
They did some cuddly photos together and then let Guava explore nearby while they continued to shoot. Everyone noticed that Guava was rolling around and his beautiful white coat was turning quite brown. The humans giggled at him having an amazing time like he was a lil pig in mud! Then as Guava approached, so did the smell and all at once, they realized that Guava had, in fact, rolled around in another dog’s poop!
The humans were shocked and slightly amused as Valerie and Ben exclaimed: ‘this has NEVER happened before!!!’ Everyone laughed, and they took Guava home and gave him a nice warm bath, and he came out just as adorable as ever!”
From Ben and Valerie: “Guava loves ping pong balls, stuffed animals, (short) walks and is the pickiest eater we’ve ever met.”
As you might suspect, a cutie like Guava has his own Instagram account.

What beautiful and natural looking pictures they have to treasure. That dog is such a cutie, we have a Maltese cross and he definitely has a bit of the mischief in him as well.

He is adorable and am laughing here so much as I call it the parkchanel when Layla rolls in I am not sure what. A mischevious side to a dog always makes it more fun and interesting

How charming the whole shoot looks and how natural and unforced their smiles and joy. The photographer has done a wonderful job and you feel you want to wish them all well for the future, don’t you?

Oh my goodness, how precious are these engagement photos? Between the lovely couple, beautiful scenery, and that cute little pup, they are perfect! Love the dogs name as well 🙂
Those are amazing photos! It’s like Guava knew he was being photographed, and turned on the charm! He’s such a natural, and these photos turned out beautifully.

I loved the pictures of that guy so cute. You look so good as a couple and the dog completes the union.
These are the sweetest photos. He’s quite the little model and is so adorable. I love all the pics.
How cute Guava is and sweet that they took him along. I was at a wedding awhile ago that included dogs and it was such fun.

I never did engagement photos, but If I did, I would have loved to include my dog. He is part of my family – and my furchild.
Beautiful couple and their fur baby is cute. Love those background and great photos as usual. I agree with you that fur baby is a model.
