I’ve done the standard google search, but I’m hoping some of you can share your horse photos during the wedding or engagement shoot possibly? Our resort has horses and we can use one for an hour for photos. The ceremony is inside, this will only be for photos. I have a few poses that I love, but I feel like those will take maybe ten minutes. I need some more ideas! Otherwise I’m going to put my kid up on it and let him ride for the rest of our hour while we do other photos. Not a bad plan, but I’d like to get some good shots 🙂

Ukulele4You: That’s so pretty! I love horses and really wanted them incorporated into our photos. It’s too cold to do the ceremony outside (like 40-55 roughly), so I’ll be chilly but hopefully the photos will be nice.

Ukulele4You: You look gorgeous!!! This is how I want to turn up to my wedding, are you side saddle in that pic?

I have a horse and I’d like him at our ceremony venue (it’s rural, meadows etc). There’s some logistics, not least the good old british weather to consider. Our dogs will be there too (with our dog sitter)
If I couldn’t have him though, I personally wouldn’t want a random horse as a prop. But if the horses have good welfare and right at your venue already I can see why you’d like to use them for your photos
Sorry I don’t have horsey wedding pics to share….yet. But following to see others posting.

spacediamonds: Oh thank you. I ride side saddle. I ran off during the cocktail hour so I could ride around in my dress. You can’t tell in that picture but the saddle pad was blue and he had bule ribbons in his hair.

This is my boy. He will only be making an appearance in the engagement pics, he’s a bit skiddish so he will probably think a big white dress is gonna eat him. I am kind of toying with the idea of doing a “trash the dress” session riding him in my dress later on. There will be more than enough stress on the wedding day without worrying about him 😉
And here’s an out take to show you what happens when they don’t want to cooperate lol he hadn’t had his breakfast yet so my sweater looked like a tasty option

Artie52: OP, do you often ride horses? If it’s going to be 40-50 out, there’s a chance the horse will be ‘fresh’- are you planning on riding, or just posing with it?
One thing to consider- I’m 25 and have been riding since I was 3, I own two show horses at the moment, and anytime I’ve gone to the barn in something I had that was clean I ALWAYS got dirty- usually because my horse(s) would sneeze on me.
My engagement photographer asked if I wanted to do bridal portraits with the horses and I said ‘only AFTER the wedding!’

- Wedding: November 2016 - Muhlhauser Barn
After my 1st marriage I decided to do a “trash the dress” shoot with my horse. the goal wasn’t to really trash the dress but it gave me the ability to get my dress dirty without caring too much while getting amazing photos with my girl. Not only did I get good ones of the two of us but I also got some really pretty ones of her. I plan on doing this again after my 2nd wedding!
picture #3 is one with gold glitter in her hair 😀
This is my Arabian mare, Arwen.
