Oh how I loooooved photographing this session. It’s not too often you get to photograph a gorgeous bridal session with a horse. Leah is amazing. She is my cousin’s cousin…I’m not exactly sure what that technically makes us, but let’s just say we’re family. Leah and I are slightly around the same age, with her being younger than I. Growing up, I admit I was a little jealous of how beautiful she is and how talented she is with horses. Leah has been riding horses her entire life! She’s had her horse, Journey, pictured in these bridals, since she was 16.
Leah is an amazing trick rider that performs with a trick riding troupe all over and she was recently a stunt rider in a new movie about trick riding. You HAVE to youtube trick riding. Your mind will be blown! If only she could have done some tricks during this shoot, but I’m sure that would have been slightly terrifying with the thought of the possibility of ruining her wedding dress. Oh well. I photographed Leah’s wedding this past saturday so I’m looking forward to blogging about it! She married a great guy. We did this session in the comfort of her in-laws pasture. You should have seen me on the back of a four wheeler with my huge bag of camera equipment and a bride next to me for this session. It was a sight to see.
