Get the Perfect Wedding Photos with Your Furry Friends

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

A Furry Tail Wedding | Tips for Having Your Dog in Your Big Day

By, April 11, 2016

At True Photography, we are all animal lovers, and think dogs make everything better (I mean, have you seen True?!)! So naturally, we feel that an exceptionally loyal pet has earned a place of honor at the wedding festivities. After all, a wedding day is a time to be surrounded by best buddies, family, and those closest to us. So why not extend the invite to our four-legged friends?

There are lots of different ways to incorporate Fido into your big day. Many people find that their pups love to be center stage and take on a central role, like as a ring bearer or dog of honor. Others keep their pup around to chill, provide moral support, and entertain the guests. For your inspiration, we’ve put together a few of our favorite recent doggie wedding photos. Sit, stay, and enjoy!

If you do plan to include your party animal in your big day, definitely make sure to mention it to us ahead of time. That way, we can plan for some “pawsitively” adorable photos!

Before carving out a role for your dog, you will want to check with your venue, and make sure they allow animals on the premises. Even if your venue has a restriction, there may still be a way to incorporate your dog into portraits during the day. We are always more than happy to include them!

During the wedding, we highly recommend appointing someone your dog knows, and letting them take over. That way, you can relax and enjoy your day. It’s also incredibly helpful to give your pup plenty of exercise beforehand, and to supply the handler with lots of prized treats and extra clean up bags.

Again, always talk with your venue beforehand to ensure Fido is welcome :) And be sure to check out more of our recent pet friendly weddings.
