5 Tips for Bringing The Dog! (to your session or wedding) | Austin Wedding Photographer

One of my favorite parts of living in the Austin area is that everybody has DOGS! It’s such a dog friendly city, which means a lot of the locations I shoot at are dog friendly as well! I get a lot of couples asking me if the fur-child can come along to the engagement/bridal session – and the answer is a resounding YES! I love when the dog tags along. But, as with everything, there’s definitely a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it! Here’s some tips for bringing the pup along to the engagement session (or the wedding) to make sure everyyyybody has a great time!

One

Bring a friend (a human one). You’ll want to have an extra set of hands around whose sole job is to babysit the dog! After all, you will want SOME photos of just the two of you! Have a friend along so we can smoothly transition between having the dogs in a photo, and then taking them out. Plus, they can keep the dog entertained so they aren’t distracting you while you guys are trying to channel your inner Beyonce. 

Two

Bring treats! Or whatever motivates good behavior. Photos can be a lot for a dog – lots of commands going on, lots of distractions/new smells, and what on earth is that black box that lady is pointing at me?? Bring along something to motivate them and help keep them focused. 

Three

Have the dog be freshly groomed. Make sure the pup is looking their best! They will probably get a little dirty running around outside while we shoot, but starting off with a freshly bathed pup can make a world of difference! If its the wedding, consider accessorizing them so they fit in with the rest of the bridal party. Floral wreaths to sit around their neck or to decorate their leash are a great place to start! 

Four

Consider having someone take the dog home after the ceremony. Even the most well behaved dogs can be unpredictable at large events with lots of new people for long hours. If having someone make a run home isn’t realistic, consider hiring a boarding service that will come pick the dog up and keep them overnight, so everyone else can relax!

Five

Lastly, remember that at the end of the day, just like a human child, we can only control your fur child’s behavior to an extent! Even if their behavior doesn’t line up with your expectations, stay focused on making sure we get great photos of you and your partner and on having the best day of your life! All the things that go wrong are what make for the good stories anyways, so go into your day with open hands – prepared to receive the wonderful things, and to let go of what doesn’t go perfectly.
