Tiana and Jake, an early spring engagement session in Pittsburgh

Since we had our booking meeting over Skype, my first chance to meet Tiana and Jake came at their engagement session. The pair met me at Frick Park and brought their sweet dogs for their session. It was so much fun to get to know them as we walked through the park on this early spring day. As a crazy dog lady, I spent way too much time playing with their dogs instead of shooting!

As part of their initial email, I had asked Tiana to tell me a little bit about her and Jake and their relationship. I love their love story and how they've been together and grown together over the years. It totally shows in their interactions together and it was so sweet to work with them.

Here is their love story in Tiana's words:
"Jake and I have been together for five years. We've been friends since I was 12 and he was 15, and started dating when I was 16. There were definitely a few bumps and awkward situations leading to us dating (particularly because one of my best friends was his sister, which is how we started hanging out), but we are so excited to be where we are now five years later and absolutely ecstatic to get married!
