Red, the Lab/hound mix joined his humans for a gorgeous engagement session with Kelli Wilke Photography in February. The muted winter tones are absolutely beautiful, but of course, Red stole the show! Wilmington Riverfront seems like the perfect location for an engagement shoot.
From Kelli: “Sarah and Mike live in Wilmington, Delaware. They met through a mutual friend. Sarah and Mike have been together for three years. During the summer they love to go out on their boat as much as possible, hence why they are getting married on the water on the Bohemia River in Maryland.
They also love taking their bikes to the Wilmington Riverfront and riding the trail (this is the location of the engagement session and chosen for its water location.) Also, it is the spot they like to take their dog, and it has a view of Wilmington where they call home. They are both obsessed with their rescue dog, Red.”
From Sarah: “We rescued Red in 2017 from a fantastic rescue out of Coatesville, Pennsylvania, Lamancha Animal Rescue. We knew from the moment we saw him that he was one of a kind. His favorite things are watching the squirrels and birds in the back yard, riding in the truck all day with Dad and cuddling with Mom on the couch. They say dogs are the closest thing to Angels on Earth, and I truly believe that about this good boy.”
I am not sure when the wedding will be, but hopefully, Red will be a part of that too.

It is so nice when a couple has a dog like Red to take care of together. He is a fun looking dog and goes well with the two of them.
It was wonderful to learn more bout this family. This is such a beautiful engagement session.
I am married but I would definitely do a session like this even now, love my doggies and my hubby!

The one where he is looking at his mom and dad kissing is priceless. I would have that hanging over my fireplace. I’d never tire of looking at it.
These pictures are beautiful and I love that they included their dog! Congrats!
