Caitlin & Elliot | Chesapeake, VA

Capturing Caitlin and Elliot’s engagement was an overwhelmingly enjoyable experience. From attempting to gain and hold the attention of Caitlin’s three horses to sharing a pond with an INCREDIBLY friendly goose, the entire event left me in eager anticipation for their coming wedding next June. Caitlin and Elliot are both fantastically lovable people, and once again, I find myself wishing that I could actually become great friends with yet another one of my couples.

You can lead a horse to an engagement, but you can NEVER make them stand still.

Not the best image by FAR, but it so perfectly represents Elliot’s struggle, I couldn’t resist sticking it in.  He did SO WELL for a guy who never really deals with horses.
