Once upon a time, in a stable far, far away, there was a beautiful, auburn-haired girl who loved horses. She could ride, she could jump, and she could muck out a stall with a smile. One day, she met a handsome young man who loved horses, too. As luck would have it, he owned a ton of race horses. He took one look at that gorgeous, feisty ginger and knew he had found his true love and a crack stable hand. A few dozen times to the winner’s circle and a diamond ring later and they were engaged. A match made in heaven.
Now they are all about living happily ever after.
Photography affords us a unique pleasure – seeing favorite clients enjoying life’s special milestones and changes. We did Kori’s high school senior portraits a few years ago, and we were thrilled with the news of her engagement to Dan. This shoot is the first lap in what will be a dynamic collection of engagement portraits. With a year to work together, we have a plan to capture the seasons through lifestyle portraiture as well as studio work. Beautiful images to capture their love as they move ever closer to their wedding day.
This shoot took place one blustery October afternoon on a half-frozen side hill near Bangor’s Bass Park. I mention this because while I nearly froze, Kori and Dan didn’t bat an eye at the cold. They grinned and glowed all the way through. That’s love for you. And Kid, officially known as Kid Courageous A in the winner’s circle, did a great job, too. In fact, Kid was sort of a camera hog. The joke is that he paid for the engagement ring. I guess he was making sure he got top billing in the engagement photos.
All our best to Kori and Dan.
