Joanne had been watching as several of her friends had been getting photo shoots and was keen to get some photos of her precious horse of a lifetime, Rialto, too. When she came to book her shoot, she booked for both herself and her good friend, Michelle, to have their photos taken together. We booked out two hour slots and went on our adventure round Plessey Woods together!
Joanne has owned 22 year old Rialto since he was just 2 and has done everything with him herself. From backing, to pleasure rides, to competing at Elementary dressage with numerous wins to their name – they make quite a team! Rialto now enjoys a quieter life away from the school, but Joanne was keen to get his photograph taken with just a handful of his many rosettes and sashes to celebrate his achievements. It was like a mini award ceremony, he looked ever so proud and humble all dressed up!
After capturing some black background images at the yard, we made our way over to Plessey where we were able to use the many gorgeous backdrops it had to offer for some more scenic photographs. Joanne and Rialto have the most precious bond and we were able to capture some really priceless moments between the two of them. We rounded up the shoot down by the water where Rialto posed for some gorgeous shots with his reflection – they looked ever so dreamy!
I loved photographing you both – and thank you for all the giggles along the way! I hope you like your photos as much as I do!
