If you’re a horse lover, there’s nothing quite so magical or unexpected as involving your favorite beast in your wedding adventure. Whether you make an entrance on a horse – just like a princess – or let the little ones enjoy pony rides on your big day, horses are a magnificent way to express yourself.
The horse has special symbolism in many cultures across the world from the Native Americans to the Celts and everything in between. In Chinese culture, the horse is equated with Gemini and represents practicality, love, endurance, devotion and stability – all the things one wishes for a long and happy marriage.
Putting together this engagement shoot meant more than putting on some smiles and hopping in front of the camera. A lot of anxiety about #bodypositivity went into this project and let me be the first to say, Amanda rocked it. When you are wearing something you’re comfortable in, having fun with props and your future spouse– paired with a photographer who loves to do happy dances when they get an uh-mazing shot… it turns into some gorgeous photos to be cherished for a lifetime.
