Here at Shy Heart Studios, we LOVE animals – especially dogs! Believe it or not, but our studio name was actually inspired by our owner’s dog, Shylo! When our company first began, nothing seemed to stick until Brianna thought, “What about Shy Heart Studios? Kind of like Shylo, but we shorten it to Shy!” She thought she was crazy to name her studio after her beloved fur child, but we all knew that it was perfect. The immense love that Brianna has for Shylo has carried over into her business. Our office mascot sits at our feet while we work, scares the crap out of us when there’s a stranger at the door, and will be there to snuggle us when we’re having a bad day.
There’s a running joke that Randy is Shylo’s boyfriend – the two are inseperable. Brianna has never seen Shylo love someone (especially a guy!) as much as she loves Randy. When they’re spending time together, Shylo will sit between the two of them and give Brianna the stink eye if she’s too close to Randy. So when it was finally time for Randy to propose to Brianna, he knew that Shylo had to be there, too.
How do you hide a proposal from a wedding photographer? Let us tell you, it’s nearly impossible, but Randy did it! Brianna wanted to do silly Christmas card photos showing Shylo and her boyfriend together. It was the perfect excuse to have photographers there to capture the big moment. The three of them posed for some photos and then it was time to pop the question. Randy finally asked and she said “YES!”
