Shayla and Brandon’s engagement session was such a blast! The cold weather did not get in our way of capturing the love and compassion that these two share. I have known Shayla for a long time, and I was so excited when I heard Brandon recently proposed! We started the engagement session in Downtown Rochester, where I got some beautiful pictures of them enjoying the downtown scenery. The rooftop of the parking garage always makes for great photos! After walking around downtown, we made our way to Red Knapp’s Dairy Bar to warm up with a sweet cup of hot cocoa. I’ve always wanted to shoot at this diner, and I could not be happier with the pictures! The diner is so cute in the inside, perfect for this fun engagement shoot!
Shayla and Brandon then did a quick change of clothes and we met up at the Rochester Municipal park to finish the session. This park is a great spot for a photoshoot! There’s a beautiful pond here and a bridge that looks just beautiful in pictures! Shayla wanted to bring her dog along for the last part of the session. It was such a great way to end the shoot! Her dog, Rey, was so cute and such a photogenic dog! She was a little shy at first, but Rey warmed up to the camera pretty quickly. I captured some beautiful moments of these two lovebirds with their adorable dog! I am thrilled to share the final pictures with you all!
