I’m so excited to share this dog-friendly engagement session at Sachuest Town Beach in Newport, Rhode Island from Coli Michael Photography. Maura and Rudy included their dog, Max, and he is adorable!
From Coli: “Max is a big part of Maura and Rudy’s story, so they decided to make him a (big!) part of their engagement session. This was such a fun session, and I was honored to be a part of it!“
From Maura: “Max is the love of our lives and the center of our world. He is the most loving, attentive, cuddly, smart, funny, and feisty boy you can imagine. Max is full of personality and makes us laugh every single day. He is also the most spoiled. Whether it is his wardrobe (endless options), or his dinner preference (medium-well steak tips), he really lives his best life. He is ALWAYS with us, and he wouldn’t have it any other way- just watch us walk out of a room for 10 seconds. He comes to work with me every single day and has his bed set up on my desk. Everyone in the office loves him, and I’m pretty sure he is my job security at this point.
When his 40-hour workweek is over, he is the ultimate beach bum. He spends his summer weekends at the Cape and loves frolicking on Nauset Beach with his signature wacky, crooked, perfect smile. Those are our favorite family days.
When it came time to plan our wedding, we knew every single part of it had to be Maxy friendly, including the engagement shoot. He was a true professional and the real model of the day. He stole the show from Rudy and me, just like we knew he would.

What a lovely shoot. I’ve always been curious to pass through Rhode Island one day. Max is adorable and love that they involved him in every aspect of their lives and planning. Congrats to the happy couple!
