from the moment i met the lovely and talented ashley louise mckenzie of ashley mckenzie photography, i secretly hoped to one day have the opportunity to shoot with her…i don’t know if it was our matching haircuts, our mutual affinity for birds, or simply her sweet nature, but whatever the reason i was drawn to her. so it is no surprise that i was delighted to have the opportunity to second shoot for earlier this summer at an unbelievably gorgeous, sunlit equestrian country wedding in loveland, colorado.
DSC_4953meeting this sweet couple for the first time, i was amazed and impressed not only by the bride’s ability to ride bareback in a wedding dress, (bouquet and all), but by the sincere and genuine love they expressed for each other. there was no question that these two were meant for one another, right down to their boots!

nothing could have made this evening more perfect. these two were surrounded by love and laughter, friends and family, dogs and horses, and each other…for ever and ever.
