Capturing the “Creative Light” of Your Special Moments …

124cdcf9a2e84742f4a285e9df4a750a1326396057My 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. Marchese199

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.Marchese290
 
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 IMG_3875solely 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.

Bullish on Flower Dogs

Leah, of  Weddings and Blooms, in PA did the beautiful flowers for this wedding.  This cute French Bulldog, in her flowered collar, brought the ring pillow down the aisle and then posed for her cameo photos by Revelation Photography, also in PA.

From Leah McMaster of Weddings and Blooms, Mechanicsburg, PA:

“Weddings have always fascinated and delighted me.  It is such a special day in the lives of  a couple and their families.  So much preparation goes into making the day beautiful, unique, and fun!  Flowers are a very important part of a wedding.  They add beauty, interest, and a pop of color to the overall design of the event.  I have so much fun customizing flowers to compliment the personalities of the couples that I work with.  I am very privileged to have the opportunity to touch so many special weddings with my work.  It is truly an honor.”

From Cindy Strupp of Revelation Photography, Carlisle, PA:

“I started my love for photography through a high school photography class. I have been photographing sittings and events in Carlisle PA and   surrounding areas for over 20 years. Whether a portrait sitting, wedding, or event, I am dedicated to making your photography experience fun and memorable. I  donate a portion of all pet portrait sittings to Furry Friends network pet adoption.”

Puppy Love

Whoever thought up the phrase “man’s best friend” really meant to say “bride’s best friend” since more than ever, couples are incorporating their puppies into their big day!  I mean, if you think about it…who better to be by your side, than the one who normally – is – by your side?  I am in love with these adorable photos of brides with their furry friends!

Weather or Not

Us kids and dogs on the east coast have some wild weather coming up, and as scary as it can be for us, it can be even more scary for your dog.  There is a simple, comfortable solution that takes the terror out of thunder, lightening, fireworks, hundreds of cheering wedding ceremony guests, and other scary noisy things; it’s called the Thundershirt.  It’s a cozy little coat that acts like a big hug, with constant gentle pressure that has been proven to reduce anxiety in over 80% of the dogs who’ve worn it. (They also make a version for cats.)  It comes in several different colors (including a heather gray that goes with just about any color of dogl….) and it can be embroidered with your dog’s name.  At 39.99, (with free shipping!)  it’s a simple, inexpensive solution for all those scary times that send Sophie under the bed, shaking and unhappy.    And, as an extra bonus, they’ve partnered with Petfinder to make Thundershirts available to thousands of pets in shelters across the country.  It’s all good! Image

Can Bulldogs fly? Well, if they could The Pooky Professor will get them their Wings!

1. My fiance and I can’t wait to have our wedding and include Sparky and Rocco.  How can you help  us?
I have unique wedding services for Dogs. I am a dog trainer in northern New Jersey, and I teach dogs whatever it takes to have them be included in weddings. I train your dogs to walk nicely (on or off leash ) down the aisle.  I will transport your best friend to and from the wedding, as well as provide pet sitting services after the ceremony. I can help you design outfits and/or costumes for Sparky for the wedding, and I can also help the photographer get that perfect shot, and much, much more!!

“Man’s Best Friends” – Gorgeous ‘Dog in Wedding’ Pictures from Elizabeth Anne Designs

Reposted from Elizabeth Anne Designs

Man’s Best Friend

I recently crossed over from bride to wife and have how caught the wedding bug! I love to gather new or fun ideas in hopes of inspiring future brides. My husband and I have a home in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania where we live with our dog, Nala.

I hope you’re ready for another post of cuteness overload! We’re loving doggies this week, and helping Chicago rescue One Tail at a Time win $25,000. So we thought we would throw in some puppy wedding inspiration with bow ties, ribbons, floral collars, and even capes to make your pooches camera-ready for some fantastic wedding photos!
