Newlyweds Are Having Sweet Post-Wedding Photos Taken with Their Favorite Felines

Cats in Wedding Photoshoot Ideas

When it comes to weddings, there are many ways for a couple to personalize their special day. One approach is to feature their beloved four-legged friends in the pictures. While dogs are common, there are plenty of cat lovers who wish that they could have their favorite feline in their wedding photos. Photographer Marianna Zampieri is making this happen for lucky couples in Italy; she snaps portraits of newlyweds with their cats, incorporating formal attire with fur and whiskers.

“The idea of creating post-wedding photoshoots with cats came to me when, in April of last year, I got married,” Zampieri tells My Modern Met. She and her partner had a “very intimate ceremony,” sans photographer. They arranged a series of self-portraits instead. “I would not have endured the idea that in the pictures of the most important day of my life there was not Arthur, my beloved cat,” she recalls. “So I took a series of photos with him to capture that moment as self-portraits.”

Zampieri’s wedding photoshoot ideas have caught on with her friends. One couple wanted to incorporate their three cats in their big day, but they knew it would be too difficult for the creatures; Zampieri explains, “too much emotion, too much confusion and too many people present for animals so habitual.” So a week post-wedding, she traveled to her friends’ home and photographed them—dressed in their same attire—with their three kitties. A feline’s temperament can be unpredictable, but during Zampieri’s session, each cat was on its best behavior. “In particular, Perla, the beautiful white cat, had a lot of fun with the various layers of tulle of the wedding dress, so that we found it always lying on the long train!”

If you're looking for cat-themed wedding photo ideas, look no further than photographer Marianna Zampieri.
