Everything is better with dogs, especially photography sessions! If you are making a bucket list of beautiful places to visit, add Bland, Virginia to the list! West Virginia and Virginia photographer Amanda Gibson photographed this lovely dog-friendly fall engagement session earlier this year. Labradors, Cooper and Clyde, had lots of room to run and play during the photo shoot.
From Amanda: “Kristen and Cody couldn’t wait till next year to be married, so they decided to bump up the wedding to this November. Kristen’s parents recently bought a house with gorgeous property where the engagement session was taken. They were married at the end of November with the same beautiful mountains as their backdrop.”
From Kristen: “I had been looking at Yellow Labs because my family and I had just lost ours about a year and a half prior. And of course, Cody was totally in, and that’s when we found Cooper in August of 2018.
We kind of had shared custody of him until we moved in together in January of 2019.
Fast forward to the next year, and I had been obsessed with having a silver lab, and I had been looking for a while. I was visiting my brother in Pennslyvania and found out that there was a silver lab puppy available in Ohio. The puppy and I have the same birthday, so I just knew it was fate. So that’s how we ended up with Clyde.
Their personalities are polar opposite. Clyde is definitely the annoying little brother, and Cooper tolerates him on most days, but they freak out if the other isn’t around.”
Hopefully, Clyde and Cooper will be in the wedding photos too!

I love this photo serious! It almost looks like the couple, and their adorable dogs, picked their colors to suit the amazing fall backdrop. The shots of the dogs playing together and running around are my favorite – it certainly looks like they had fun while getting their photos taken!

I love the photo of them looking over at the two happy dogs as they play. It really captures a loving moment for the whole family. It is a golden moment at a golden time.

The best Christmas present anyone could give me would be a photography session for me and the dogs! Love these shots!!!!
Congratulations on your recent wedding.
The photos turned out great. I’d love to be able to do this for people. I’m still wanting to open a photography business but COVID happened making it tough to attempt to get clients.
