I was so excited when Allison and Ryan asked me to do a second engagement session for them. When Allison and I met initially she told me all about her horses and how she’s been riding since she was a kid. I really wanted to incorporate them into the shoot. But, at the time, the horses weren’t boarded locally. I’m kind of glad we saved the horses for the second shoot though. Working with horses is much more challenging than I anticipated! The horses couldn’t be ridden because Lacy, the older horse, is injured. And Bach, the younger horse, is too young. It’s funny because Bach is two and having a two year old at home you can see the similarities between the two. They are both stubborn, energetic, and don’t like to follow direction! The main difference is that Bach is so big he usually wins the battles!
Although we had all worked up a sweat at the end (and poor Ryan had rope burns on his hands) I’m really, really happy with the results from this shoot! Beautiful location, beautiful people, and a beautiful love! Can’t wait for the wedding in September! Here’s the slideshow!
