{Melissa and Joel: ENGAGED!}

I woke up on the day of this fabulous engagement shoot to SNOW outside my window. This is not how it's supposed to be in late April! Over the course of the day, the snow melted, but the winds came. And they were FREEZING! My husband (who was my assistant for the shoot) and I met Melissa and Joel that evening at an old farm they had found, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be a GREAT location! These two were such troopers. They don't even look cold in these images, but let me tell ya... I was wearing earmuffs, gloves, a scarf and my wool coat. Even with gloves I could barely feel my hands. COLD!!!

Congratulations Melissa and Joel... I can't wait for the wedding!!

Aren't these dogs so awesome? They were HUGE! I couldn't stop laughing as they tried to wrangle them into position. But this shot was worth all the effort!!

What great variety you got - you can't even tell they are cold! Those dogs are adorable - I think my favorite is the one with the guitar.
