adopt a shelter dog wedding inspiration

From The Lady with the Camera Photography “I this shoot that coordinated with a local shelter and lots of different dog-loving North Carolina wedding vendors! The shelter, APS of Durham found volunteer alumni dogs and their owners to come model for our shoot.

We hope that with how beautiful these pictures turned out that it will help bring attention to the cause of adopting, especially after all of these natural disasters happening in the last few weeks leaving hundreds of animals homeless.”

“All wedding pros involved got involved because they love dogs and have a passion for shelter and rescue animals. Our real couple, who volunteered to model for us, even had a dog they just took into their care. We hope to bring about change and get dogs and other animals their forever homes!

The color scheme was a rose gold color scheme with hints of deep maroon throughout.  We all loved the theme as it’s perfect for either a fall or winter wedding.”
