Below are some of the more common questions I get asked about Ride the Sky Equine Photography.





What is it like to work with Ride the Sky?

Working with Ride the Sky can vary depending on if you are an equine, pet, or commercial client.

But the common thread no matter what type of photography is that we have a lot of laughs and a good time.

Do you photograph horse shows or horse events?


Many years ago I photographed events but as the private client and commercial side of Ride the Sky has grown, I moved away from doing events.

There are a couple of exceptions:

I will photograph events for private clients (such as an individual or a group) who want their day documented. This means that I am at the event and I photograph that client’s entire day – their rides, the background shots, and candid shots. It’s like having your own paparazzi for the day.

You may also see me at events when I need to shoot background images for my stock photography or when I am testing out gear.

Do you photograph weddings or families?



Ride the Sky is, first and foremost, an animal brand. I stick to photographing horses, pets, and the people who love them.

I do photograph brides in their wedding dresses with their horses, and families with their horses and/or pets

And, of course, I photograph high school seniors with their horses. Because seriously, what’s the point of senior pictures if you can’t include your favorite horse in them? You can learn more about Chattanooga Equestrian Senior Portraits here.

But I am not a wedding photographer or a family portrait photographer specifically.

In other words, I only shoot it if there’s an animal in it.
