Emma and Stuart had originally planned to hike up a mountain for their engagement shoot–which sounded like a lot of fun, if a serious challenge as well. But at the last minute, they decided to do their photos a little closer to home, opting for nearby Shaker Village. Then, after the sun started going down, we hightailed it back to Stuart’s family home, which offered a nice view of the falling sun. We even hopped a fence, thinking this one tree out in the field looked kinda nice. As soon as we were done, however, and had hopped back over the fence onto his folks’ lawn, a pair of horses came screaming out of the dark and charged up to the fence, apparently none too keen on our little photo session. Never thought I’d have the beejesus scared out of me by horses. But there you go. You learn something every day.
