Saying "I do" to someone often means making a commitment to someone's pet as well. With Seattle having more dogs than children (approximately 25% of Seattle households have canines, vs. 20% with kids), I often get requests from couples who want their photos taken with their furry friends.
Dogs make the photo shoots a bit longer and more challenging. Most of the time, animals just want to do their own thing. I've found that it's good to bring treats along for the dogs, to encourage them to look toward the camera. But when we get the picture right, it's worth the extra effort!
