A few months back, this idea to incorporate horses into a shoot came to me! Honestly, I have no idea how I haven’t thought of this sooner because, if you know me at all, you know my love of all things horse related! Two weeks ago I was looking at the forecast and saw that we were going to have some warm days. Shooting out in -40 weather just isn’t an option so I quickly threw this idea into motion! It was a beautiful, warm and sunny winter afternoon at the farm, perfect for this horse inspired Canadian wedding styled shoot! The whole afternoon was a dream! We warmed up with hot coffee in between to let our fingers thaw and got our solid fix of all barn animals! As you’ll see, there are a few kittens that got into photos, all fascinated with Ashley’s dress.

Winter is a really solid off season for me and this winter wedding shoot was just what I needed for a pick me up! It was so fun to combine several of my biggest passions in life into one magical shoot. If you have a strong love for any animal, I highly recommend incorporating that pet into your wedding photos!

Here are the lovely vendors that together made this shoot pure magic!

And the biggest thanks to my lovely friend Kathleen for letting us use her gorgeous horses and stinking cute pony for these photos!
