All ya'll readers submitted some awesome photos into the Offbeat Flickr Pool this week. I found an abundance of shoe porn plus a couple of cutie dressed-up pups.
Camilla is rockin' these fantastic silver and flower heels from Irregular Choice. I love me some mary janes too — they stay put.
Tribe member Mich said these Doc Martins were her first wedding purchase since the family joke was that she'd get married in Docs. Any place is appropriate, in my opinion.
While these powder blue Vivienna Lorikeet flats are to die for, what's really awesome is the perfectly-matched prosthetic leg Jess is sporting with its psychedelic socket color. Also note the amazing dress color with its contrasting lining. She describes herself as "slightly-less-than-able," but I'm pretty sure she's able to rock this look like a pro.
Here's a full shot of Jess' dress while she and her bride, Charlotte, make faces at each other. Adorbs.
Becky found hand-painted robot flats on Etsy! Seriously, is there anything you can't find on that site? Domo arigato for the lovely photo, Becky.
Since we're looking, check out Becky's handmade boutonnières with robot charms, bottle caps, and computer boards. Serious nerd cred happening here.
Switching gears from the shoe bonanza, I couldn't leave these puppy shots out. Jackie and Josh's fur babies are Duncan (in the tie) and Indie (in the pearls).
We're ending on another dog-loving shot. This is Katherine and her happy-looking corgi, Teemo, in a matching wedding collar. A wedding dog must look the part.

Hey, photographers! I love you and do my best to attribute all Monday Montage photos, but sometimes brides don't include your info when they submit photos. If I've featured your work but it isn't properly credited, email me!
