Iowa Wedding Photographer | Rock The Dress – with dogs!

When Melissa scheduled her Rock the Dress (trash the dress) session with me and wanted it to be in November I warned her that it would likely be snowing and very cold.  She wanted to do it anyway.  Boy, was I wrong!  I am not lying when I say I shot this session last weekend.  As in 3 days ago.  It was actually 70 degrees out and beautiful.  We needed no jackets of any sort!  They even ended up in the lake (for a quick 2 minutes)!  Melissa took a slightly different take on rock the dress and did it canine style.  She shows dogs for a living and has 3 beautiful pointers that are her babies.  She wanted to get wedding photos with them and it just wasn’t something that was a possibility on her wedding day.  So, we did it and it turned out beautifully.  Check them out!

  • These are so beautiful! I’m amazed with the consistency of your colors. If I were her, I’d buy a massive canvas of the first image and hang it somewhere *prominent*.

  • Really really fun stuff here! I really like what I’ll call the “dog tail moustache” picture – what a catch.

  • These are absolutely gorgeous Amanda! So many frame worthy moments. I just love that the dogs were such a big part of the session, and that field location is spectacular! Such dreamy romantic hues 🙂

  • Hahahah! That shot with the dog under the dress is awesome! It appears to be snowing in a few shots? So dreamy. Perfect lighting!

  • Gorgeous set of images, Amanda!! I wish more people would include their dogs in their sessions!

  • Lovely light. The first two are my faves!

  • Thanks Ben! It’s actually not snow, it is parts of the bouquet/flowers she is holding. When we shook them it put a lot of tiny petals in the air and I thought it was very pretty in the light!

  • Amanda, you did a wonderful job on these images. The love this couple feels for each other really shines through — they are so happy and having such a great time. 🙂

  • I love it. I was also trying to figure out what was in the first one. It’s a great addition.

  • pretty awesome stuff amanda. looks like a super fun couple. i dig.
