Engagement portrait with Chihuahuas in sweaters

My clients often include their pet dogs for parts of our engagement portrait shoots, as was this case with this engaged couple's two Chihuahuas, which ran up close to my camera lens as I was about to photograph them with their owners who were sitting at the base of a sequoia tree in the Japanese Garden of Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington. The closest dog nearly blocked his owners completely, but left enough of them visible to result in an imperfect but truly unique and quirky engagement portrait.
