Pugtoberfest 2009 | Photos

This year at our photo-booth we went with a Hollywood theme. My wife made a wonderful Hollywood red carpet scene, similar to what you see at all the big movie premiers. They usually have all the sponsor logos plastered on a white wall. I think we simulated that look with our logo and Pugs ‘N Pals.

Our goal of $500 may have been a reach, but we were able to raise $300 for Pugs N’ Pals Pug Rescue. Thank you to everyone that visited our photo-booth and everyone that came and made Pugtoberfest a huge success.

Here are a couple of our photo-booth clients. If you don’t see your pooch, be sure to see our full gallery.

Pugtoberfest 2009 is around the corner!

It’s that time of year again where hundreds of pugs and pug lovers meet up annually to support Pugs ‘n Pals Pug Rescue. Every year the attendance increases as the word spreads about Southern California’s biggest pug meet-up, Pugtoberfest! It is truly amazing to see so many people and so many Pugs. There are plenty of events and activities planned for the day from a Best Kisser contest, a Best Costume Contest (it is October), to a Silent Auction. There will be many vendors selling products and services; dog and pet services will be on-site for ear cleanings and nail clippings. A veterinarian will be on hand for any questions you may have. Along with all the festivities there will be many available dogs for adoption!

This year we will be hosting a photo booth, where for $10 provide a mini photo shoot, a 4×6 proof and a fine art print (mailed), and an online gallery to share with friends. Last year we raised over $300 for Pugs ‘n Pals!!! We hope to out-do ourselves this year and strive for $500!!!

Who: EVERYONE is invited!!! Pugs, Pug mixes, non-pugs, dog lovers, etc.

When: Saturday, October 3, 2009 – 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Our booth at Pugtoberfest was a mini-mobile photo studio. We offered $10 photoshoot where ALL the proceeds are donated to Pugs N’ Pals Pug rescue. Thanks to everyone who came and participated. We had an amazing day with some beautiful dogs. Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did taking them.

Enjoy!

Pugtoberfest 2008: Halloween Costume Contest

One of the most anticipated events of the festival of pugs is the Halloween Costume Contest. In between our customer photoshoots I snapped a couple of great shots of the eligible contestants.

Personally I thought the Lion Pug should have made the top three. He was so content in his well fitted costume. He was so awesome! Oh and the two Cows were so great!
