Dog Wedding Ideas
Getting married is one of the biggest events of your life. It would only be natural that you’d want to include the most important members of your family. That can mean including your beloved dog(s) too! Of course, some of our sweet pups might be a bit of a handful and such an event may be too overwhelming for them. However, there is definitely a way to include your sweet doggies if you so desire. Today I’m going to give a few dog wedding ideas, as well as some dog engagement and portrait session ideas too!
Dog Engagement Sessions
Your dog(s) can easily be included right off the bat, beginning with your engagement session. I’ve worked with clients at dog parks and even stopped by their home to snap a few quick photos with their sweet doggies before or after our main session. I usually include a few dog squeaky toys in my gear bag to ensure their utmost attention to the camera when needed. We often just grab a few photos of you together, then move on to couple photos while your pup(s) heads off with family or a friend.
Dog Wedding Ceremonies
Some people want to involve their doggies in their actual wedding ceremony. It can be so sweet to see your canine(s) dressed up in their best bowties and flowers while being led down the aisle by a friend or relative. Another alternative (if you don’t want them in the actual ceremony) is to have someone stop by the reception for a quick few photos of you together. We can make anything work!
Dog Portrait Sessions
And of course, we can always include your doggo(s) in any type of portrait session you may want as well. You can bring your pup to your maternity session or portrait session. Or if we are photographing in your home (for example, in a newborn session) we will be sure to capture a few photographs of all of you together in your full family photos.
I hope these tips were helpful in your plans to include your dog wedding or portrait photography! If you’d like to talk more about working together for portraits with your doggies, contact me soon! I’d love to discuss how we could work together.
