Would You Have Your Dog in Your Wedding?

It was once the domain of crazy cat ladies, but it is now becoming mainstream. More and more pet owners are including their fur-children in their photos of special occasions.


As a pet lover surrounded by many other pet lovers, I have noticed a trend appearing on my Facebook newsfeed: pets in engagement photos, pets in wedding photos, and a satirical post on Buzzfeed.com even popped up last week of a newborn photoshoot done with a dog.

I have seen some stunning photos and I have to admit I love it. I’m not sure that my dogs will quite be up to ring-bearer duties, but they are absolutely going to have to have a cameo in my wedding photos. How could I not share that day with them?

As for the newborn photoshoot, I get it. My dogs are my babies. This one may have been done as a joke, but I have a feeling this is actually being done in some corners of the world as a legitimate activity. Not sure if I’m quite sold on that one just yet.
