how to book / what to expect?

WE MAINTAIN PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY PERMITS FOR ALL MAJOR PARKS IN THE TWIN CITIES. What that means for you: No additional fees for awesome locations, a full list of options for you to choose from, and less stress when it comes to planning your pet session with us.

where will our session take place?

ALL DOGS PHOTOGRAPHED BY STUDIO TWELVE:52 / TWELVE:52 PETS ARE ON-LEASH THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THEIR SESSION.

WE PRIORITIZE PET SAFETY AND ALWAYS ADHERE TO LEASH LAWS - WE SIMPLY PHOTOSHOP OUT ALL LEASHES LATER :)

what is your leash policy?

if you are worried about the weather, or maybe your pup is a little more anxious on a leash / out in public we can totally come straight to you and capture some in-home portraits. these provide a really accurate picture of what life is really like with your fur-baby.

what about an in-home session?

no. we ask all of our clients to have their pets' favorite treats ready to go for their session. reason being, you know them and what they like best. also, some pets have allergies and require a special diet. we want your pets safe + at their happiest!

do you bring treats with you?

we send out a style guide for all studio twelve:52 / twelve:52 pets sessions prior to their scheduled time.

what do I wear?

don't worry about it! seriously, we've got you covered. we've never met an "unphotographable" dog. we know all of the tricks to make even the most energetic, young, sassy, or stubborn pup look like a totally trained pup in their portraits. just don't forget their treats/favorite toy ;)

what if my dog doesn't know any commands?

the more the merrier! The most we've ever done is 17. we aren't intimidated in the slightest by you having your own little duo or pack, since we do too! (six majestic pooches)

what if i have multiple pets?

in our own personal pack we have 2 reactive pups as well. therefore, we patiently work through any quirks your pup(s) may have. whether we end up choosing a more secluded location, or opting to do photos at your home, inside or in the backyard, or renting a unique and private studio setting, we can make it work - we seriously don't mind!

what if reactivity is a concern?

let's do it! we've actually photographed horses, cats, hedgehogs, goats, cows, pigs, countless reptiles and even some birds... but we are most well-known for our work with dogs. just no spiders please :)

what about pets other than dogs?

say what?! Congratulations. As many of you know, we actually specialize in wedding photography and have documented well over 500 love stories since our founding back in 2009. we initially created our pet photography branch (Twelve:52 pets) when we realized almost all of our wedding couples were including their pets in their engagement photos or their wedding day - and then things just kept growing from there! so if that's what you're looking for, please head on over to our studio twelve:52 website, or click here

how do i book you for my wedding?

all the time. we have photographed both pets and weddings all over the united states, and beyond! Please inquire to discuss your desired location and we will provide a custom quote.

Working with Kasey and Tyler was a dream!! I have been wanting to get photos done for forever, and we got a puppy so I had a great excuse to do so finally!! They went way above and beyond my expectations, and even gave us GREAT puppy advice for our new baby. Their knowledge and experience working with pooches and the camera is really is incredible. I cannot wait to have them photograph every thing that happens in my life that I need photographed!! Highly, highly recommend this dream team, you won’t be disappointed!!! 

the cruz family

Kasey is wonderful to work with! I scheduled a session for our family dog who is very old and at this point does whatever he likes and my 1.5 year old. Lots of room for the unknown to happen, Kasey handled it with ease! She was very patient and full of optimism! The pictures turned out great and will leave my family with some great memories!

The bastyr Family

I had a Legacy session for my 10-year old terminally ill chocolate lab... I am so impressed by Kasey's ability to 'speak' dog and to have fun letting the dogs be themselves while also giving direction. Lord knows my dogs are quirky! Paisley had a blast and at the end even wanted to get in their car to go home with Kasey and Tyler. I highly recommend this photography team for pet parents! Thank you, Kasey and Tyler for giving me special memories of my heart dog. 

The hood Family

Kasey and Tyler are wonderful! They have so much love for what they do and the clients they work with (human and animal), and we are so happy with every photo we have from our time with them. They are the best, most committed and caring people, hands down.

The khalil Family

I cannot say enough great things about Kasey and Tyler. They’re absolutely amazing to work with!! They perfectly captured our personalities as well as our puppy’s. If you’re looking for a wonderful photography duo that you can trust to capture those candid moments, Studio Twelve:52/Twelve:52 Pets is perfect!!

The Nienaber Family

I am in love with them all! Kasey and Tyler go above and beyond capturing moments with you and your pets. They really know what they’re doing and provide amazing pictures! Highly recommend!!

The orwoll Family

Their work with pet-ography is also phenomenal - no one understands and photographs dogs like Kasey. She’s a dog mom of 6 who really gets that animals are family and it’s obvious.

The salsberg Family

Kasey and Tyler are absolutely amazing. I can’t believe the wonderful pictures we’ve gotten. We’ve had two photo shoots so far with them, and will 100% have more in the future.
