This '101 Dalmatians'-Inspired Engagement Photo Shoot Is Everything

Growing up, Walt Disney's "One Hundred and One Dalmatians" was certainly a cinematic staple in each child's collection of dusty VHS tapes.

As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure my copy is somewhere in my parents' attic, along with my "Power Rangers Turbo" VHS.

That's how good this particular film is. It was an instant classic that will likely go down in history as one of the greatest animated films of all time.

Don't believe me? Well, it's so good, one photographer decided to fulfill her cousin's request of recreating one of the film's most memorable scenes for the some engagement photos.

Chicago-based photographer Melissa Biggerstaff, her cousin Corinne and Corinne's fiancé were able to bring the scene to life using a perfect location, outfits similar those in the movie and some family dogs.

Check out the photos below.

Does this scene look familiar to you?

Corinne, a soon-to-be bride, asked her cousin, a photographer, to help recreate this memorable scene from the 1961 animated film.

After finding the perfect location and the perfect outfits to get the job done, Corinne and Tony, her fiancé, became Anita and Roger Radcliffe.

Corinne and Tony were able to cast their families' dogs, Mookie and Izabelle, for the shoot. The dogs played the roles of the sneaky Dalmatians who brought Roger and Anita together.

After their "accidental" encounter, Tony, or Roger, rather, formally introduced himself to Corinne aka Anita.

If you watched the movie, you know what happens after the leashes get tangled up: the fall!

According to the movie, marriage comes after this scene!
