The minute I found out Camilla was a horseback rider, I knew we had to incorporate that into their engagement session somehow. So we planned this session at the Fellowship Farm where her horse Gryphon is boarded. After spending just a few moments in the stables, I completely understood why she fell in love with riding as a kid. Horses have such a soothing presence. They’re massive in size, but their eyes have such a peaceful beauty. Her horses were definitely her first love…. until she met Anthony ( his friends call him Anton ) and I’m pretty sure Gryphon was bumped to 2nd place in that instant :)

These two have such an ease about them. They have that rare connection…that head-over-heels-best-friend love that everyone hopes to find. Camilla is hands-down one of the most gorgeous girls I’ve ever photographed, and Anton brings out that amazing glow in her. I can’t wait to spend more time with them on their wedding day this Fall…

Oh, and their new beagle rescue Georgie makes a cameo in a few shots below. I had a hard time not sneaking her into my camera bag…she’s a cutie :) Happy Wednesday everyone!
