It’s such a huge honour being asked by another photographer to photograph them, so when I was approached my Mel to photograph her wedding with their dogs included I could hardly say no. Mel actually found me initially by seeing my pet photography work and I was lucky that this was a big draw card for her being interested in having me photograph her wedding. I think her friends and family found it funny when she told them she had hired a pet photographer to photograph her wedding.
Being a portrait photographer herself she has plenty of shots of her dogs, but not so many of her and her fiancee together with their dogs, so we decided to focus on this for their engagement session. This also meant we could spend a bit more time focusing on getting some great images of all of them together away from the throngs of their wedding day and without being constrained within the wedding day schedule.
Because Mel is a photographer too, her dogs feature quite a lot throughout her work and they are obviously very used to being photographed. However it become quite a common theme that the focus was often on Bindi the Pug who is always stealing the limelight where everyone would say “but what about Charlie?…” so Mel named her business What About Charlie Photography – how cute is that.
I loved working with these two, they are such a beautiful couple and their wedding was just so full of love, they will make a beautiful family as well.
