Sarah is involved with Pitties Love Peace, a rescue organisation caring for Pit bulls and Pit bull mixes. The six pups came from the refuge to be a part of their special day. Sarah told BuzzFeed News:

Animals are just a huge, huge part of our life and we wanted to find ways to incorporate them.

Sarah continued:

I think you can also see the pure joy in everyone’s faces when they’re holding a puppy. It’s not a fake joy. It was just so beautiful.

It's true - nothing can make a person smile quite like having a gorgeous little dog in their arms! According to Sarah, she was quite stressed about the wedding day, but as soon as she saw the puppies that all went away... Making the photographer's job all the more fun. She told Buzzfeed News:

It was probably some of the easiest smiles I’ve ever worked with.

The couple would like to encourage everyone who sees the photos to consider adopting a dog before buying one. Sarah added:

Don’t shop, adopt. The puppies that you see in our photos are just as good as any that you’d find in a pet store.
