Love and Horses
What’s not to love about horses? They are loyal, steadfast, and true. The have been a method of transportation for hundreds of years. They are beautiful creatures, majestic and free! It was a no brainer when Abbie asked if she could incorporate Boo and Luna into her engagement session. These two are part of her family! She has been with them for such a long time, it is only right to include them in photos that will last forever.
When we arrived, Alan was finishing up the weed eating at the Hancock family farm, in Normandy, Tennessee. As he and Abbie got ready, Kaycee and I had a chance to check out part of the farm on a somewhat hot and muggy July afternoon. After a few minutes, the two love birds emerged from the barn, ready for their session. Together, we explored the soybean fields as well as the vineyard and orchard. Boo and Luna did not disappoint and were phenomenal models. Even the dogs were able to get in a photo!
Location Is Key
I always ask couples where they want to take their engagement photos. The are and/or venue needs to reflect who they are individually, and as a couple. The farm was the perfect place to capture Alan and Abbie’s love story. Think about it. Their lives are spent on the farm and with the horses, so that location encompasses and reflects who they are. There was so much history and family heritage there on the farm. The original house still stands (for now) on the property. It was purchased out of the old Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalog in the 1920’s.
