Because your pet has such an important place in your heart, why not include them in your engagement session? Not only will this creative idea allow you to show off your beloved pet, but it will also make your engagement photos unique! Here are 5 great ideas to include your pets in engagement photos:
Location is a very important factor in making your photos work. Make sure your dream location allows pets on their grounds. You should also make sure that your pet will be comfortable in that environment. If you furry-friend is easily-distractable, it may be a good idea to choose a quiet environment.
Accessories will make your photos even more fun! Some ideas are bow ties, sweaters or holding a sign (save the date, names, etc.). If you accessorize, make sure it complements what you are wearing.
3. Pet Friendly Photographer
It is very important for you to hire a pet friendly photographer. Ask the photographer if they like pets. If they do not, the photographer may not be a good match. A good way to see if a photographer likes pets is by viewing their photos and seeing if pets are present in them.
4. Behind the Scenes care
Of course you will want some photos of just you and your soon to be spouse! It will be a good idea to have a friend or family member on sight to take care of and hold your pet. This person will also be able to get your pets attention, making your photos ideal.
5. Patience & Positivity
You will need to be patient with your pet. They have (probably) never had a professional photo shoot before. They will not be as prepared as you. Make sure you stay positive through the experience. Bring treats to reward your dog!
