Romantic Ranch Wedding

I was a wedding photographer for a couple decades before I decided to completely focus on portraits, and spend my weekends camping and with my husband and animals!

But when my good friend Morgan announced her engagement, and told me about her plans for her wedding, I just had to be a part of it!  Her Paint gelding, Forest, has been in her life for over 10 years, since he was a yearling, and it was important to her that he play a role in her special day.  And he definitely didn’t disappoint, he was a total gentleman, and carried the beautiful bride sidesaddle across the pasture and to her waiting family at the ceremony.  We also got some lovely portraits as sunset fell upon the wedding day and the family ranch.  Of course, most of the photos I took didn’t include Forest, but I wanted to share the ones that did for this post!  It was worth making an exception to photograph this event, it turned out perfectly!  There was a threat of rain, and they would have been so disappointed to move everything indoors after they had worked for months to make the ranch an awesome venue, so thankfully it stayed dry and went off without a hitch!  Congratulations to Morgan and Colt!
