We had a great time with our dog doing our engagement photos! He was a huge hit at the wedding reception too.


I highly recommend bringing along a friend who feels confident commanding your dog. The only reason why our dog is sitting still and focusing his attention on something in the above photo is because my friend was standing off-camera giving him sit and stay commands. Otherwise he would have been all over the place.



I also recommend teaching your dog to “dance” if he’s tall enough. 🙂 This is a guest photo, I am hoping so hard our pro pics include one like it!

Love this post! We are doing our e-photos next month and plan on having our furbaby pose with us, too. Can’t wait to see all the photos!

I can’t imagine NOT having Lucy in them!  She’s in our “save the dates” – in the same shoot as attached but not that picture – and is going to be our ring bearer.  Sadly, she won’t be at the reception (it would be too loud and she’s too big). 

They are part of the family so to any guest or invitee that doesn’t ‘get’ it will have to deal 🙂

We just took e-pics and included our dog in some shots. We stayed close to home so it would be a familiar place for him. We let him sit on our laps because we knew he would stay there. At the end of the e-pics shoot, we sat on our front steps and our neighbors was out walking her dog. Her little dog came and jumped on my lap so we have pics with 2 different dogs!

These are great! We didn’t take engagement pics but if we did we would have had our dog in some for sure!

While I would love to have our two cats in our engagement pics, they have never been outside except in a carrier when they go to the vet.  They would freak out if I tried to take them outside for pictures.  I have zero desire to have our dumpster furniture and ratty apartment to be in one of our e-pics.

If we had a dog, I would feel bad excluding our cats from the pictures because they were the first pets we had together.

That being said, I LOVE e-pics with pets.  Pets are part of who you are as a couple, and they should be included.  I just wish I had a sweet apartment to take e-pics with our cats.  I won’t take them outside just for cute pics.

We haven’t decided whether we will have our dog in our photos or not. He wasn’t even originally our dog, but we have him now and love him to death. But, whenever he has attention on him he gets this really depressed look on his face. It’s funny to us, but not sure how he would do with pictures. Although, I’m sure we would be able to look back and laugh at our overweight, depressed, very loved dog. As I’m writing this I realize we have to have him in at least a couple of pictures.
