By, April 18, 2023

At True Photography we understand that your furry friends are an important part of your family and your wedding day. Including them in your wedding photos can make for some of the most unforgettable moments of your special day. However, photographing animals can be challenging, and you want to make sure that you get the perfect wedding photos with your furry friends.

Here are some tips on how to get the perfect wedding photos with your furry friends:

Choose Pet-Friendly Venues:

When choosing your wedding venue, make sure it is pet-friendly. San Diego offers a variety of pet-friendly venues that allow your furry friends to be a part of your wedding day including The Prado, L’Auberge Del Mar, and Hotel Del Coronado.Wedding day pet photography captured by True Photography

Use a Pet Handler:

Assign a handler or pet sitter to take care of your pets during the photo session. This way, you can focus on posing and looking your best, while your furry friends are taken care of.San Diego wedding pet photography photographed by True Photography

Incorporate Props and Outfits:

Props and outfits can add a fun and personalized touch to your wedding photos. Consider incorporating your furry friend’s favorite toys or dressing them up in cute outfits that match your wedding theme.

Plan Ahead:

Discuss your plans with your photographer ahead of time, so they can prepare and plan for your furry friends to be a part of the photo session. This includes scouting locations and planning the logistics of the photo session.Furry friend photography captured by True Photography

Puppy Love | Including Dogs in the Wedding Festivities

By, August 15, 2013

Dogs are like family – they live with you, eat with you, and sometimes even sleep curled at your feet :) So it’s no wonder that pet involvement in weddings is on the rise. In fact, venues are more open than ever to having pups included in the wedding celebration. Whether your wedding is held on an open beach, at a rustic winery, or a glamorous hotel, most venues will allow dogs on the property for at least the ceremony and photo opportunities. It’s the perfect time to unleash your pet’s wildest doggy dreams!

Not sure how to incorporate your cute canine? Below are five ways that dogs can lend a helping paw on your wedding day:

1. Portraits

Since dogs are constant companions, why not include them in your portraits? We love how dogs help reflect the couple’s personality by simply being in the photo. They also add a little humor to the occasion! Pet-friendly portraits like the ones below are ideal for printing and framing, and make a nice addition to the home!


2. Getting Ready Photos

Having your loyal best friend by your side is sure to soothe any pre-ceremony jitters. Your pup will listen to your needs, offer a paw, gaze at you in awe and give their bark of approval, followed by a big, wet kiss. We can’t think of a better way to spend the last few moments before tying the knot.


3. Walk Down the Aisle

Big or small, your furry friends will make an impact at your wedding, and show everyone how important they are in your lives. Make them part of your day by having them strut down the aisle au natural! Or, spiff them up with a matching bow tie and cuffs, so they can deliver a special note to your significant other.


4. Offer Unconditional Love

Your dogs will help to spread the joy on your wedding day, and remind everyone that they are appreciated!


5. Add Style and Humor

Doggy divas, comical canines and other pup personalities help set the tone for memorable photos. Our photographers did a great job capturing these candid canines in action!

Here at True Photography, we love our pets as family. We even call one very special dachshund a member of our team. So when we saw this image of “Fuzz” the Goldendoodle, we knew it had to be our Photo of the Week!

Fuzz took part in the wedding of Lydia and Olin, who were recently married at the Scripps Seaside Forum. He had a huge responsibility on the wedding day, with a custom embroidered bandana to prove it.  What did it say? “Best Dog,” of course!
