What could be a more magical end to a wedding than with rainbows and unicorns? Amanda and Ryan had an incredible destination wedding in Punta Cana of which I got the privilege to attend and photograph. Since the theme was birds and rainbows, a unicorn here and there made the whole thing complete. After having a unicorn pull her carriage to the alter, we decided to have another shoot back home where we could be a bit more creative with no time restraints. These photos are just the tip of the iceberg!
Our lovely unicorn model is Beau Dacious (Now referred to as Rain Beau), a former international eventer ridden and handled by Robyn Townsend (who handled him during the shoot and let us dye his hair, big thanks!). Beau spends his days now teaching beginner kids to ride and showing the more advanced kids the ropes to some complicated jumps and maneuvers. We are sure they will LOVE the rainbow mane.
FYI: I do NOT normally photograph weddings, unless you have some pretty fancy stuff. Then we’ll talk ;)
I am however open to doing any creative pre or post wedding photo sessions with any animal of your choice. Trash the dress? I’m in.
A behind the scenes photo of Beau getting his hair done, he let us put a garbage bag over his head! Those of you with horses know this is a pretty big deal. Good boy Beau.
Loki is the third is the little (big) brother to Thor and Jetta. Loki was originally from a litter of puppies from Sit With Me affectionately called ‘The Chipmunks’ that weren’t supposed to make it, they were sick and not doing well. Amazingly, Sit With Me rescued a mother dog who had her puppies taken away from her while she was still milking and thought they would try putting the puppies in with her, she was missing her puppies and the puppies needed a real mother. It was their last hope. The rescued mama dog took in the puppies and nursed them like her own and as you can see they grew up healthy and happy! In fact, they are not quite done growing yet… Despite being less than a year old Loki was a superstar, I could hardly believe he was still a puppy!
Jetta (black) and Thor (white) make up the tiny two of this dynamic trio. They are as different as night and day, Jetta being sweet, shy, and quiet and Thor being bold, confident, and quite the dancer!
The Doctor is in the house! This boy was recently pulled from the shelter and is now safe in foster care. He’s an American Pit Bull Terrier mix and because he is old enough he is legal to own in Ontario, WOO HOO!! Doctor is 10yrs old and has a few lumps and bumps that need to be checked out before he is put up for adoption but he has tons of energy to spare and loves to go for walks. He is great with dogs and cats and is very quiet. Just look at that face, who could give him up?
He is not up for adoption yet but if his prognosis is good he will be available through Sit With Me dog rescue. http://www.SitWithMe.ca
Tried out some new backdrops we got on sale. I probably won’t use it unless it’s with plain colored dogs but it sure is eye catching!
It’s not too often you get the group shot of 3 dogs that you’re hoping for on the first try, but it happened this time! Stay tuned for more photos of this adorable trio, they are too cute not to share!
