My fiance and I can’t wait to have our wedding and include Sparky and Rocco. How can you help us?
Dogs are part of your family so why would they not be there? As your photographer we make sure to get photos of your loving four legged friend going down the aisle. We also have an uncanny ability to get even the most fidgety dog’s slobbery mug on camera. And if your dog needs a little extra attention to ease those spotlight anxieties both my assistant and I are more than willing to cater to Fido’s every need.
Tell us about your business.
My business is Creative Light Studio, a photography company with an eye for the photo journalistic. We capture your day as it happens, not what we want it to be. Some of our favorite moments are completely unscripted. We have been in business since 2011 and specialize in weddings. We would love to be there for your big day!
Do you have a great dog/wedding story?
I photographed a friend’s wedding in Virginia a few years ago. On my way there from Cincinnati, OH I had agreed to take a puppy transport run to her foster home in Maryland. She managed to wriggle her way away from me and play a crazy game of hide and seek in Pittsburgh (about gave me a heart attack!). After dropping off the foster to her new home I headed on my way to the wedding. The day was gorgeous – an outdoor ceremony with perfect weather. The bride chose her two nephews to walk their labs down the aisle. It seemed like an awesome plan except that one of the nephews was only 12 and the dogs each weighed close to 100 lbs. Wilco and Gibson performed flawlessly (thanks in part to some delicious treats)… until it came time to leave. Gibson decided the treats were way better than walking the other direction so he refused to move, eyes firmly planted on the treats. I have a photo of the 12 year old trying as hard as he can to budge Gibson but he was going no where. One of the members of the bridal party had to step in to get him to move. It was something everyone got a chuckle out of.
Tell us about YOUR dogs!
Where do I begin?! We adopted our two loveable lugs two months apart from each other (to the day!). Both are 4 year old German Shorthaired Pointers named Zora and Porter. Zora is the smart hunter – she hunts everything from birds to spiders. Once she gets a hold of a scent she will not let it go. We also firmly believe that she believes human hands were made
solely to pet her. You could pet her for an hour but once you stop she will shove her snout under your arm to make you aware that you happened to stop. Porter on the other hand is our less needy dog. He sighs and groans like an old man and is the best snuggle buddy you could ever ask for. We technically adopted him from a Labrador rescue because someone turned him into the lab rescue thinking he was a lab. They told us that when they found him he was probably about a week from dying. He had been chained up in a yard and left without food and water. As a result he has some scarring from the chain on his legs and he gets a little anxious when we aren’t around. Zora and Porter were made for each other – they are always falling asleep on one another and sharing everything. They are truly the perfect pair.
