taylor + brian

allright folks. i know it's been a while. does anyone even read this blog anymore?
anyone...
anyone...

bueller...?

i am officially starting to blog my 2011 weddings and i could not be more excited about it! why so late? well, last year i shot about 30 weddings in 9 months. which was crazy! and i was sick. and i was pregnant. and i had a baby already! this year, my resolution is to pace myself. and maybe even catch up on this blog! 

i'm kicking off the catch up with a bridal session from last winter. taylor is a pro horsewoman and wanted to work her beautiful horse into her bridal session. so we shot at the stables- SO fun, SO challenging! it was FREEZING cold and we were working with a horse, falling snow, and moving an incredible alta moda gown through icy puddles and um...

HORSE POOP. 

yikes! want to know what wasn't challenging about this shoot? taylor and brian. talk about a gorgeous couple! so natural in front of the camera and so in love. i loved that they were willing to take risks and try something different, including some really fun lighting that's a little unusual for a portrait session! enjoy...

two things: ONE; BEAUTIFUL session, love the ones in the stable/barn whatever you call it..and TWO; It's killing me that she may or may not have gotten horse poo on her dress..funny, usually it doesn't bother me when brides dresses get dirty..but it's POO. Great work as always Jess!
