Middleburg Photoshoot

It’s been raining most of the week, and since I don’t have regular access to an indoor, I haven’t been riding, nor had my lesson. I’m now having riding withdrawal.

So instead of anything related to the mud beasts that inhabit my field, here’s some photos from our fall photoshoot!

Every year (although we hope to do it more frequently now), my friend and I will force our husbands to do a photoshoot with us, done by the super awesome photographer Steven of Photo Senikai. I feel like I stalk him, because I love his photos so much.

These photos were taken about five weeks ago, in Middleburg, VA. Yes, we did get comments and weird looks walking around like this. I heard a lot of “they must be going to a wedding”, which would have made it a very poorly attended wedding with just the four of us.

This was my first experience with Rent The Runway, and while overall it was a good experience, I’m disappointed that the dress ended up way too short for me. I didn’t realize I would have been considered “long” at 5’6″, but at least I will know that for next time.

This one is my favorite, because Dave always gives me these incredulous looks.
Can I say that this is a super awesome picture without sounding vain? (except for that dang short dress!)

I decided to ditch the heels and just wear sneakers, conveniently they were blue. Also pictured are our gorgeous friends.

Ditching the shoes entirely! Thanks, Middleburg, for having so many beautiful backdrops, although with this one right on a corner, we had a slight fear we would be hit by a car.

Dave is so helpful to hold the light!

And that’s all… for now. One of these days, I’ll glam up Berry and do some pictures with her like what I did with Vintage last year. I feel like it’s only fair.

  1. You looked very, very pretty, Courtney. Your horses, though, were probably wondering why you weren’t with them in their muddy field. What you need to buy is a “long rider rain slicker”. You may look very western, but you’ll be dry and nobody will mess with you. 🙂
