Equestrian Styled Shoot

August 24, 2018

Since moving to Arizona, I’ve been on a quest to expand my portfolio in new and exciting ways.  One area of interest which has been with me for quite some time has been equine photography.  I have no experience riding or owning a horse, however if you’ve followed along on my social media channels, you may have noticed that I have a slight obsession with horses.  Most of my time with horses in Nevada and Arizona has been tracking down the local wild populations of mustangs.  It is something that in between my regular shoots I can take some time for myself, go and explore in nature, and spend time with these beautiful beasts.  I always come home grounded and with a deep sense of peace.

As I’ve researched more into equine photography, I’ve come across other fellow professional photographers and recently had the opportunity to travel to Santa Barbara for a specialized equine themed bridal shoot.  Hosted by Sara Shier Photography, she gathered some great vendors, models and horses and the results, well they speak for themselves.  I was in heaven as this shoot took place at the beach in Santa Barbara.  Horses on the beach?  Who doesn’t love that!
