Your puppy is always with you! Puppy’s photos are all over your Instagram and Facebook so why don’t include him or her in your engagement pictures?
Your engagement photos are a peek into your life. If you're a dog owner, take the opportunity to show off your furry baby!
For some couples a dog is the first “baby” and it's not surprising that many couples look to include their pets in the wedding planning.
Are you thinking your dog serve as the ring bearer? There's nothing more adorable than having your furry pop up in your engagement photos.
Here, nine tips on including your beloved companion in your engagement session. Keep reading for a few tips for including your dog in your engagement photos.
1. Choose a dog-friendly location
While most public parks will allow pets, you might have trouble including your pup at a shoot at museums or historic estates. We know Italy offers a variety of beautiful landscapes and charming country spots but if you prefer a tipical Italian Villa we suggest to call ahead of time to confirm that your four-legged ones are welcome.
Pay attentions if your location will be comfortable.
If you want a session in one of our marvellous village in summer keep in mind that hot pavement streets might prove uncomfortable for you pet's naked paws after some time. If you are thinking of a winter shooting in the snow, it could prove less than scenic for dogs unaccustomed to the cold.
2. Style your dog :)
Make sure the dog’s leash and collar don’t clash with what you’re wearing. Maybe you can splurge a brand new collar in a fancy pattern.
For something more there's nothing wrong with having them dress the part in a puppy tux, bow tie or a flower garland.
3.Bring someone to help with the puppy
With a helper you won't have to worry about them getting restless, feeding them or giving them water, and you can focus all your attention on getting the perfect pictures of just you two.
4. Treats, treats, treats
Don’t forget yummy treats particularly when you'll need your pet to sit still or lay down to pose for a photo.
5. Stay positive and be realistic
Don't get stressed out if your pet starts misbehaving or refuses to sit still and look at the camera. Your dog will likely sense it if you get frustrated and that won’t help.
Avoid super long session
After 10 minutes, they're bound to lose interest and stop behaving altogether, giving you less of a chance for a good shot. That’ll be plenty of time to get some walking shots, playful photos, candid moments, and maybe even a photo of all of you smiling at the camera! Remember that you know your dog better than anyone. If your dog isn’t typically good with staying still then don’t stress out about perfect photos and embrace the genuine moments.
We hope this post is helpful for all of you who loves pets as much as we do! :)
