Andrea - The first one with the ring on the china is so creative and just right for this location and really sets the scene. The one of her leaning on the white fence looking at the horses is amazing. Her dress is lovely and her smile and laugh are so pure. You have captured some really nice creative images here Audra. Looks like a really fun photo shoot between friends. A+!

June 5, 2012 - 1:06 pm

Jan Lindsey - You truly capture the essence of someone. You can tell by her laughter, the same thoughts were running through her head, she was hanging with a friend and not being photographed. You captured her joy, all over her face. WONDERFULLY DONE! Some of my favorites.
