Sit.Stay.Smile. Pet Photography creates stunning wall artwork of your furry best friend that will last a lifetime! Dynamic duo Delise and Greg West capture that “special something” about your pet; the way they look only at you— their playful side—their silly quirks. How do they achieve this? By getting to know you and your pet well before the day of their photoshoot. Delise and Greg are a community-minded husband-and-wife team that has donated thousands of dollars to local animal shelters and charities through their fundraising photoshoots. Greg has been a commercial photographer for over 30 years, and started applying his extensive knowledge and experience in photography to pets in 2018. The studio space is located in downtown Dover at 6 Broadway and includes complimentary parking!
