In my opinion, engagement sessions are better with dogs! Cody the Golden Retriever mix and his bestie, Maddie the Black Lab/Aussie mix, took front and center in some of these engagement photos with Dewitt For Love Photography. I am primarily sharing the images with Cody and Maddie. But don’t worry, Shannon Dewitt also took plenty of photos of just the humans!
From Shannon: “Audra and Nick wanted to include their fur babies in their Engagement Session, and obviously we were more than happy to oblige!
Cody (Golden Retriever) and Maddie were the cherry on top of the cute sandwich, and came prepared with signs to show their support!
We shot this adorable foursome first in their backyard, then out front on the porch of their recently purchased home, while finishing up the session skipping around this beautiful Tampa neighborhood! It was the dreamiest day with the most lovely people (and pups)!
Audra stated that the ‘I loved her first’ sign was especially important to her. She had her Cody long before adding to their crew with Nick and Maddie. Good boy, Cody! (I’m totally not emotional about that…not one bit…*sniffles*)
Audra and Nick will tie the knot in a couple of weeks, and we think there will be another cuteness overload on that glorious day!”
They are a huge part of our lives; our little family would not be complete without them!”
