Trash the Pooch with Carolin, Mark & Archie


Back in March last year (it seems like such a long time ago now) I had the pleasure of photographing Carolin & Mark’s Skyline Gondola wedding.  The only thing that was missing from an otherwise perfect day was their dog Archie.

So I offered to give Carolin & Mark a free Trash The Pooch (Get it?  Like Trash The Dress but with a dog as well) shoot at some stage after the wedding.  Well, last week we finally made it happen.  The weather was stunning, Carolin, Mark and Archie all looked fantastic in their wedding attire (even if Archie did jump in the lake and get his wedding “tux” soggy right at the start of the day) and we were all in love with the photos.  So here they are for you to get a giggle at as well.

P.S. Here’s the lovely feedback I received from Mark and Carolin by email after they got their Trash The Pooch pix;

“Hi Patrick,

Got the discs in the mail today. We are super duper happy with all the photos! They look so awesome. I can’t wait to print them off and display them. Archie in our wedding photos just makes it all feel complete.

We like all the goofy ones…the ones where we are not actually looking at the camera, laughing at something Archie has done. Plus, both Mark and I look so relaxed compared to on the actual wedding day. Will look back on these in years to come and will remember it fondly.

You’re a star, Patrick. We appreciate all you’ve done.

Thank you so much!!! Will keep in touch.

Best regards,
Carolin, Mark and Archie”

Here are a few words that I think sum me up: I AM…tall and bald, happy, imaginative, constantly hungry, active and friendly. I LOVE…my girl, coffee, photography, fooooooood, my family and friends, riding bikes, being outside, the simple things in life, people… I love my life! I believe that wedding photography can and should be SIMPLE, NATURAL, BEAUTIFUL.
