I have always been one of those girls who loves horses so when this adorable engagement session by Kevin Trowbridge Photography popped up in my inbox I became instantly obsessed. Not only does it have the prettiest pony but a sweet-as-can-be couple as well with a love story that will melt your heart. I love that they incorporated the postcards they would send each other during the years they were apart. So cute! See it all in the full gallery!
From Kevin Trowbridge Photography… After this couple met when Simon was invited to Polly’s Christmas dinner in Hong Kong, they kept in touch for many years via Facebook, long distance calls, and many, many postcards, which are featured in some of the photos. They are now together in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and inseparable. Polly envisioned her perfect engagement session to take place out in nature with horses, so I organized a ride with Okanagan Stables up at Heartland Ranch. After an introduction to their beautiful silver grey horse Remington, or “Remi” for short, we headed out across a golden field with Simon leading Polly on the horse.
Katherine (my wife, business partner and second shooter) set up a special picnic for the couple, including a bowl of fresh organic strawberries, French lemonade and European chocolates — suitable as Polly works at a chocolate shop in Calgary and dreams of opening up her own pastry shop someday. Together, they sat enjoying the sunset overlooking the valley and reading through the postcards sent to one another from distant lands that kept them connected throughout their years apart. Awww. They are getting married on May 27th, 2012 at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.
