Dogs in Engagement Photos

Did anyone include their dogs in their engagement photos? If so, what did you do with them when you were getting pics without them? Did you get them cute collars and leashes?

    We did! He wound up stealing the show. We did get him a leather collar and leash, and we had a friend pick him up/dog sit about 15 minutes into the session.

    We just got our doggo a bow tie to wear with his normal leash and collar. We also had a friend meet us part of the way through and hang out with him while we finished.

    Yes! We included both of our dogs (6 years and 6 months at the time) and had my MIL watch them while we were taking pictures without them - they love her and she's a dog whisperer so it made the most sense lol. We didn't get anything special for them to wear but we're really low-key in general. One piece of advice is get there early and let your dogs explore - ours were so psyched to be out and about that they were hard to wrangle for pictures!

    We included our dog Lilly in some of our photos. My mother-in-law tagged along to watch her when we were doing the photos without her, and it was super helpful! We just chose a simple collar and leash that would coordinate with our outfit choices without drawing attention.

    We included our pup.

    We had his normal doggie coat, and a special sign.

    I brought a doggie stake and lead, and we just moved him around with us.

    We took dog pics at a park near our house. When we were done with our pup we dropped him off at the house, did a quick outfit change and went to another location for pics.

    Haha, not engagement photos, but my BIL included the family dog in their getting ready photos on their wedding day! They are the cutest, with little mate sitting at the front posing perfectly. I think bringing along a friend to pop in and take doggo when you've got the shots you like would be a good idea, and if I had a pet, I'd definitely want at least one or two photos with them!

    We included our dog and brought my MIL to watch her while we did photos without her. We didn't do any special collars or anything for her.

    Thanks for the leather collar and leash idea! I bought our two pups leather collars and leashes for the photos they were in. I can't wait to see what they look like!
