Since I started my business 5 years ago, I’ve always wanted to do an engagement shoot with horses! When Courtney booked her wedding she asked if she could include their horses in their engagement photos. Um, YES! Of course! I was SO excited. We planned for a while and decided the best thing to do was meet at the Battlefield in Manassas, VA. If you follow the blog, you know I shoot there quite often – but this was different!
I found my way to the horse trailer parking area and was greeted by Courtney, Bruce, Dallas and Cameo! They had all just returned from a trail ride so we gave the horses some time to unwind before their photo ops! It was really nice chatting with Courtney and Bruce. These two have been adventurers from the start! Shortly after they started dating, they took Cameo to Alberta, Canada on a two week road trip. According to Bruce, it was the ultimate test for their relationship – if Courtney came back still head over heels after 2 weeks, their love was for real!
That road trip was the first of many with and without their horses. For nearly 10 years these two have been best friends and riding partners – especially after Courtney got Dallas a few years ago! I am so honored to have captured this special time in their lives and I’m very much looking forward to their wedding next September.
