in couples

For those of you who know me, I’m a big softy for dogs, and when my friend and crazy-talented wedding photographer, Caroline, asked me if I would take pictures of her, Josh and the fur-babies, I was all in. Plus, she offered to photograph me with Bueller, and really, how could I refuse???

Milou, her beautiful black Portuguese Water Dog has been her best friend and companion for well over a decade. Since she is getting older, she wanted a few sweet images with her and the family while she’s still able to run around and play. Caroline’s stylish Midtown apartment made the perfect setting for tickles on the bed…

And doggy stare-downs… (of course I had a bowl of treats sitting on top of my head).

Ferocious teeth-baring…

I think this is one below is one of my favorites because it is so “them”.

I know, I know… But I swear no animals were harmed in the making of this photo shoot (just maybe a little embarrassed).

These two are not only super talented and crazy-funny but they are also some of the most open-hearted, generous and honest people I know. I feel very lucky to call them friends and grateful to get to be the one to document this little snippet of their lives.  Thanks, Caroline and Josh!
