Bride’s Decision To Bring Her Dog To Her ‘First Look’ Photoshoot Makes The Pics Go Viral

Perri Farlow has been a photographer since 2008. A big part of her work revolves around weddings, however, this was a first even for the experienced professional. Right before her ceremony, Kristen Dupree, 24, started getting the jitters. To calm down, she asked her matron of honor to get her beloved dog, Zeke. The 2-year-old AKC black Labrador retriever had been hanging out with the groom and groomsmen all day. Everything eventually evolved into an adorable “first look” photo shoot, and Farlow perfectly captured the bond between Kristen and her pup.

“While it’s not uncommon for couples to bring their pets to engagement sessions, seeing them (pets) there on the wedding day doesn’t happen often,” Farlow told Bored Panda. “[When] Kristen requested doing the ‘first look’ with Zeke, I very excitedly agreed that it was such a cute idea!”

“I love when couples incorporate their pets into portrait sessions and weddings,” the photographer said. “Pets bring out such honest, authentic emotion from their owners, making it so easy to capture the genuine joy they feel when they’re with their beloved pets.”

Farlow said that Zeke’s very playful yet very well behaved. “Kristen and Duncan brought Zeke to their engagement session as well. He loved playing around but when it was time to pose for photos, he was obedient and did a perfect job. He really is the best boy.”

“Zeke was such a calming presence for both Kristen and Duncan. They obviously love Zeke and he loves them back just as much.”

“I think incorporating Zeke into their wedding was one of the most important things to Kristen and Duncan,” Farlow added. “Zeke even had a signature cocktail named after him served during the reception!”

The two have been hitting it off since the day they met
