Dogtopia Charlotte Charity Dog Wash

Last weekend, I volunteered to provide photography coverage of Dogtopia‘s annual charity dog wash. You know I LOVE dogs and of course, photography, so this was a perfect fit! During the 6-hour event, volunteers washed 116 dogs and raised $3,425 for Paws With A CausePaws With A Cause is a non-profit organization that trains assistance dogs for people with disabilities.

Check out this cute video coverage of the event by My Fox Carolinas. I even make a small cameo 33 seconds in!

If you didn’t know, Lovely & Light does offer pet photography sessions! Email studio@lovelyandlightphoto.com for more information.

Here is what people had to say about the images from the event:

“These are phenomenal. I can’t thank you enough!” – Owner, Nicole

“Awesome photos! Thanks for being out there today. You captured the personality of the dogs perfectly.” Groomer, Stephanie
