These portraits of a bride and her best dog, by Emily Nicole Photo are lovely. As is often the case, their story is just as beautiful. While some people might consider Ty, a Schnauzer mix, “less adoptable” since he has a physical limitation, it doesn’t keep him from being a star!
From Emily: “I was so excited when Sterling asked if she would bring her dog Ty along to her bridal session. He was a total ham!”
From Sterling: “His full name is Tiresias, but I call him Ty. Tiresias is the name of a blind prophet in Homer’s THE ODYSSEY, and as a theatre person that was the first name that came to mind when I realized Ty was blind. I found him in the parking lot of the apartment complex I was living at in college. Ty was matted as well as having patchy fur due to fleas.
I intended to keep him just until he found a forever home. But then, I realized his forever home was with me! Haha, he’s super sweet and cuddly but sometimes feisty and playful.
He’s a schnauzer/ terrier mix and might be three years old now. He’s been in two theatre plays and one short film!”

I love a happy ending story. And Ty has not misgivings about being blind. He’s just enjoying being loved.

Love all these shots! Love Ty’s story too… as “mom” to a couple of special needs pets, I definitely appreciate hearing about others who also adopt animals with “disabilities.” Ty is a cutie, and it doesn’t seem like his blindness gets in his way at all!

What an amazing session. Ty is adorable. I’m disappointed when people think because a dog may have some limits they are not as valuable. We too have limits. Great story.

These photos are absolutely stunning. Ty and the bride are beautiful together. I had another friend do a pet friendly wedding shoot and it was the most memorable beautiful shoots I’ve seen. I wish I could have done so with my wedding pics. thanks for sharing your special day!

Oh these photos are so touching and beautiful. Honestly, a bride is beautiful anyway but with her special hound? This is too much! I love these!

Ty is so beautiful – and the photo session really showcased their love for one another! I love that Ty has been included in the theater plays – how awesome is that!
Cathy Armato says
Ty certainly is this bride’s “Best Man”! He’s absolutely adorable and I just love his rescue story. This is one special lady to have given him such a great life. So heartwarming.

What beautiful pictures I’m sure they’ll be cherished forever. Mom would love to have some pictures like that with me, except for the wedding dress, but she claims she takes terrible pictures. I’m sure with me they’d be just fine! Love Dolly
I really hope your mom changes her mind! A good photographer will capture the love between you! If she needs help finding a photographer, just let me know!
What a beautiful story and a beautiful bride!

I’m so happy to see they have each other! So much so, that I didn’t even care that the groom was nowhere in sight! I’m sure he was handsome, but these two…they melt my <3
