Carrie and Pete, with Diesel and Hondo
May 4, 2010

Yesterday I drove to the eastern Colorado plains to photograph Carrie and Pete at their home. They raise horses, so it was a great idea for them to include Diesel, Hondo, and many of their other adored animals in their engagement portraits. I had so much fun getting to know them and all the wonderful personalities that surround them at their ranch — horses, dogs, cats, a cow named Chuck, Larry the goat, and Peanut the pony.Thank you so much, Carrie and Pete, and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Man play-wrestling with a goat
Pete and Larry play-wrestle and pretend to butt heads! It’s fascinating that Larry knows not to make any actual contact that could hurt Pete.

Peanut has lived with Carrie since Carrie was two years old.

these pictures are absolutely gorgeous! i love each and every single one of them. great work and beautiful couple.

I can’t put my finger on it but something about this set is really awesome.
(as are all your pics lol)

I think my favorite is the riding off in the sunset in black and white (with doggy off to the side!)

btw lol no horse poop anywhere! either good editing or quick clean up πŸ˜‰ (why oh why do I look for these things?!)

I also love Larry, but the best pictures are definitely the two of them riding in that golden light (pictures 9 and 10).

I think this is my favorite set you’ve ever posted!! Beautiful!!!

This is a beautiful set of pictures.

I love them all, but I have a soft spot for Larry. πŸ™‚

omg. i can’t even choose a favourite. i love the pickup truck and the horses and the sunset and the silhouettes and the B&W close-up… you outdid yourself on this one. and WHAT a gorgeous day! did you call for the blue skies, too? lol

also, if they feel half as much love for each other as is coming across in these pictures, they’ll be together a long, long, long time.

if I ever get engaged, you’re doing my photos, I don’t care what it costs me! πŸ™‚
