Crystal & Rob are planning to get married in Virginia where Crystal is from but as Orlando residents, they asked me to capture their engagement photos here in good ol’ Central Florida! It was important to them to also incorporate their adorable yellow lab Xaro into their photos as well and being a total dog-lover I was happy to do so. Not only is this pup an important part of their little family, but he has an extra special relationship with Rob since they served in the US Army together for several years. Having grown up in the military myself their story was really touching and it was truly an honor to capture some beautiful engagement photos for this sweet trio!
We chose Urban Wetlands park as the location which is a little hidden gem in downtown Orlando and is super dog friendly. I had a blast spending the afternoon with Crystal & Rob and I wish them all the very best on their wedding day later this year! Enjoy a handful of my favorite images from their warm December engagement session below.
