After my trip to BlogPaws, I have a good case of wanderlust. While I don’t have travel plans in my immediate future, I’m inspired to visit Hope Valley. I am loving the wide open spaces in these engagement photos by Kristi Gayton Photography. And of course, the dogs are the cherry on top!
From Kristi: “Jessica and Aaron have one of the sweetest engagement stories ever! If you love, you will appreciate this one and understand why their pups were such an important part of this shoot!
Jessica had always wanted a Queensland Heeler puppy. One day in January Aaron called to tell her that his truck wouldn’t start and she would need to come pick him up from his parents’ house. When she walked into the living room, he walked around the corner holding a puppy!
She was so caught off guard she didn’t even realize that little Tucker had a ring attached to his collar until Aaron was down on one knee proposing! Tucker has been a bundle of energy from day one and is now training with his ‘big brother’ Simon with cows for the ranch. Simon (a 3-year-old charcoal lab) is their other fur baby you see in the photos.
Simon had belonged to Aaron before he and Jessica started dating. Aaron and Jessica call Simon Grandpa because he doesn’t act like a 3-year-old. They don’t even worry about leashing him most of the time because he won’t leave their side. It was so much fun including them in this beautiful engagement shoot!”
