Snow engagement pictures with Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs in Northern Virginia | Winter engagement in Reston, VA

We’ve got another snow session on the blog today! This chilly engagement shoot with Jen, Brandon, and their Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs was so much fun. We met up at their house in Reston, and their neighborhood backs up to this amazing trail system. It was the perfect location for engagement pictures! I love how pretty all the trees looked covered in snow.

Bronx and Micah have actually been Instagram friends with Rui forever! Yes, we have Instagram accounts for our dogs haha. (@bronxandmicah and @life.of.rui. Go follow them for more cute pictures!) It was so great to finally meet them, and of course their parents, in real life. Next we have to get all the pups together for a playdate.

You can tell these dogs were just made for playing in the snow. Can we just talk about Bronx’s crazy face in this zoomed in shot?! Haha, he was having a blast!

The secret to a perfect engagement session with dogs - a bag full of treats! Gets their attention every time.

When your dogs weigh 100+ pounds, it’s pretty easy for moments like this to happen when they get too excited haha.
