I'm sure your next question is--but who are the dogs?

Cam and Tyler are two rescued golden retrievers from Tennessee. Their parents, Scott and Bari, adopted Cam in 2006 and Tyler in 2016, from the Heartland Golden Retriever Rescue in Knoxville, TN.

Cam the Man (as he is affectionately called) is a twelve-year-old golden retriever with a mellow and laid back personality. He loves to get his belly scratched and is still getting used to having Ty around. You can follow his Facebook page here: Cam the Man!

Tyler always looks so happy!

Ty the Guy is three years old, and is a happy-go-lucky, friendly, and energetic dog that loves to play and run. He also has a Facebook page: Ty the Guy!

Now as you probably guessed, doing a photo shoot with two energetic dogs is not the easiest task. But I had excellent help.

Here are just a few photos of the event. Enjoy!

This is towards the beginning of the photo shoot. They were trying to figure out what was going on. It was hard to get photos with out people and shadows in them, and still get the dogs to hold still long enough to take a photo :)

This was a problem too. Josh is a dog attractor, and they just wanted to go hang out with him!
