Let’s talk about Benny “The Jet” Corgi for a moment.

I mean, how dapper is this little Corgi? He was a superstar at this engagement session. Everything from his impeccable manners to his bow tie screamed “gentleman”!

Benny’s owners Kendra and Devin are fellow Massachusettes people who live here in LA. They are getting married back East this fall but were looking for some engagement photos here where they are currently living. We chatted a bit about various locations and decided that an engagement session at Palisades Park would best fit their vision. I’m a big dog person, so I was more than happy to work with them when they told me that they wanted to incorporate their fur baby Benny!

We started out with some easy posing and they were complete pros at it in seconds! I barely had to do any coaching to get these images!

I was completely obsessed with Kendra’s Cape Cod bracelets. I have one myself that I literally never take off (since high school – no joke! It’s been on my wrist for **ahem** years!), so getting to showcase them in an engagement session on the West Coast was amazing!

Best of all, these two are big Patriots fans. Hate us ‘cuz you ain’t us, but it’s hard to argue with the numbers! Kendra and Devin did a quick wardrobe switch and we finished off the session with some good old fashioned New England themed photos.

Even Benny had his Pats jersey on!

We had the most amazing light – it looked so bright and airy!

While I love living in LA, I do get (very) homesick for Boston. It was so much fun to get to work with some fellow Boston people who understand exactly what it’s like to be a transplant!

Kendra and Devin – I know you are going to have a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful marriage. I wish you two nothing but the best and I am so grateful that I was able to capture your engagement photos!

Best wishes to these two!
