New Years Day Race

What better way to start off the new year than at a Barrel Race in Decatur, Texas.  Wild West Promotions holds an annual 5D open added money race every year.  They never cease to amaze me at how many barrel racers come out to this annual event.

Yesterdays event saw 326 barrel racers run in an out of the arena, with some of the top professionals making a run at the annual event as well.

Congratulations to Tiany Schuster of Krum, Texas on winning the 1D championship yesterday, Keep an eye out on the standings - Tiany is tearing up the winners circle and making a run for the National Finals.

There were other opportunity for prizes at yesterdays race as well, Paul Humphrey's offered up one of his special designed bits to one of the first 20 runners that ran the fastest time.  This alone is a huge prize to win. Congratulations Carissa Bryant on winning this amazing bit.

With $1,000 added money and a well organized race you can see why many people come out to compete at a Wild West Promotions race.

December 31, 2016

I had the pleasure of capturing Natalie and Kris wedding at beautiful Oak Meadow Ranch in Valley View, Tx.

When both post on social media that today was their special day because their going to marry their Best Friend, you know it's going to be a special day.

So many friends and so much laughter and joy was involved in this special day.  Being surrounded by so many friends, enjoying the celebration of their future.

I was so honored to be included in this special day.
