Black Dog Photo Co

Having Black Dog Photo Co as our photographers was the best decision we could have made. I followed them for about a year on facebook after they did a friends wedding, all of their work is absolutely stunning, so I couldn’t settle for anyone else. Black Dog Photo Co captured the most intimate and special moments of our wedding day. They delivered above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. We not only found the best photographers around, we also found friends that will be there to photograph us for all of the milestones our future holds.

ADVICE FROM THE BRIDE

It’s all in the details. To us, the details were what made our wedding so special and unique. The venue, the photographers, and the music are so important, and ours delivered above and beyond. Research your vendors, especially your photographers. It’s a joy to look back at your beautiful photos after the big day is over. A great photographer will capture the details and the little moments that only a talented eye will know to look out for. These little moments end up being the most special moments of your big day.

Enjoy the planning process. The day goes by so quickly, so try to enjoy the process. I enjoyed every bit of the planning, from creating the centerpieces to choosing cake flavors, all the way to putting the welcome baskets together for our guests that stayed at the hotel. My Father-in-law made the table number holders as well as the seating card holders. He cut each one, sanded them down, and painted them gold. They were one of a kind and were perfect! It was great bonding time with my current and new family!

Stephanie, The Bride
