I ♥ Surprises | San Diego Pet Photographer

So a few days ago, I tweeted about how much I love surprises and this is the surprise I was referring to…
Matt, a friend of mine from high school, got in touch with me about putting together a surprise for his wife for their first anniversary. He told me that they have two dogs that they love and he really wanted to get an image of the dogs to surprise her with. Isn’t that awesome? Usually, it’s the wife, girlfriend, or mom that gets in touch with me for pictures so he gets some serious points for this one. Guys, take notes 🙂

I met Matt down at the dog park in South Park and we got a bunch of great images of Jesse and Bear. He picked the one he liked and we got a huge canvas made. On his anniversary, he hung it up in their house and told her to find her present. Love it!!! By the way, the other part of her present is that they are going to get family pictures taken together later! I was so stoked that I could help make his surprise happen. And their dogs are pretty darn amazing, by the way. You can see some of the images below. The last one is the one he picked for the canvas.

Really looking forward to getting more images for you guys soon. Happy First Anniversary!
