equine bridal

Horses are a huge part of my life as you may have noticed!  I just bought my first horse this July (see her first portraits).

But just a few years ago, I didn’t have a horse and only took lessons sporadically.  Then I randomly saw a Facebook post for a Dutch Warmblood for lease by Karen Brame of Red Letter Farm. I took a huge leap of faith and sent an inquiry.  I ended up meeting Karen and big Gable and they’ve both become an important part of my life.  And as a bonus,  I have become a part of of our little riding community as well – we are women & girls from all walks of life, have different riding skills & levels & different goals but we are all horse crazy and it is this that binds us together.

So when Karen got engaged last year to a kind hearted man named Bobby, I knew we had to shoot the bridal portraits.  So, on a pretty sunny day last April we made these photos of Karen with her beautiful equine family :  Gable, Bella, Olivia & Drake.   And because Karen knows how busy I am, she forgives me to taking so long to post these photos! (right Karen?)
