Yesterday was the annual Thanksgiving Day Fox Hunt of the Essex Fox Hounds Club and was held on the Ellistan Estate in Peapack-Gladstone, New Jersey.  We have been attending this event for the past few years in order to photograph the riders, horses and hounds.  It’s a charming way to begin your Thanksgiving morning.  A gentle snow fell in the morning right before the hounds took off in pursuit of their prey and this made for some very dramatic images.  Enjoy a handful of our photos posted below and please follow this link to the NJ.com / Star Ledger Article to read more about this event.

Kerry’s dream was to have her bridal portraits done while riding horseback on  a Friesian.  Well, we made it happen.  One of our clients knows a number of horse breeders in Hunterdon county, and we made a connection.  The horse you see here is named Fjoory, originally from Holland.  We’ve developed a nice relationship with the breeder, so hopefully we will be able to do photo workshops with horse and model sometime very soon.  Enjoy the photos!
