"And out of all of them, I picked you."

Brittany begged to ride horses her whole life, and was only finally allowed to when she started attending an agricultural high school. One of her classes was an equine class, where riding was part of the curriculum.

She continued riding throughout high school between classes and w rode throughout the four years between school and a friends barn but seriously started riding and competing in my early 20’s.

Since she rehabbed with me we have decided to just ride for fun. We try new things and do something different each day.

Then came Bella...

In 2016, Brittany met her heart horse Bella at a barn she began taking lessons at. Not before long, she started leasing and competing Bella in the hunter jumpers.

Bella was sent off site to another lease after her time with Brittany. Unfortunately, she came back in rough shape in July of 2018.

"That’s when I decided to buy her."

Check it off the Bucket List!

The Photographer's Bucket List...we all have one. Mine is full of Gypsy Vanners, little children in dresses with ponies, bareback riding on beaches, and

...a wedding dress.

When Brittany mentioned wearing her wedding dress for her portraits, I was thrilled to say the least. Not only did I finally get a chance to photograph something I have always wanted to, but both of my models were just stunning, and the property was out of this world. I seriously lucked out getting work with this stunning pair!

Bella will spend the rest of her life with Brittany. Their goals include having fun and doing something new each day.
