If you’re like me, pets are a part of your life.
Growing up, my dog Laci was one of my first photo subjects. My current pup, Indiana has followed me on many adventures throughout his life [after all, his name practically calls for adventure]
Over the past few years I have seen brides + grooms include pups in their engagement sessions + wedding days. Several venues are becoming more open to this and you kind of have to admit that sharing the day with your pet is maybe the coolest thing.
A few thoughts in favor of including your pets:
Pets can make you feel at ease + calm wedding day jitters
Pets can dress the part with a bow or bowtie
Pets make a first look even cuter
Pets do the weirdest things and those moments should be captured
Pets make little ones feel comfortable
Pets make great companions for walking down the aisle
Your pet is an important part of this chapter.
I leave you with some images of pups that tagged along for engagement and wedding sessions. I also had a couple of images featured on Green Wedding Shoes if you care to peek at a few more.
