Rare Dog Breeds: A Canaan Dog & White German Shepherd

My clients braved the heat this week (summer JUST got here, apparently) and we enjoyed a fun session all around the Pensacola area! We started in Milton, near NAS Whiting Field where Travis is stationed, and then headed down to a pretty park in Pensacola, and finished up at NAS Pensacola where Courtney is stationed! It was especially memorable for me for two reasons: one, I love working with rare breeds of dogs. Areli (pronounced “uh-RELL-ee”) is a Canaan dog, which is a breed I’ve never met before, let along photographed; and Ghost is a white German shepherd, with absolutely stunning eyes. And reason number two… well, the last photo should be a decent explanation! :)

surprise wedding proposal with dogs


I can’t believe I got to photograph a proposal!! Travis was so sneaky he didn’t even tell me it was coming! Courtney said yes, of course! Congrats, you two! I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos with you soon! For now… happy wedding planning! :)
