Professional Equestrian Photography in Southeast MI


There’s no truer bond than that of a horse and its rider.

The amount of trust that this relationship requires is unmatched, and the ability to capture it in a photo is something that is not easy to do. Marla Michele Must of Enchanted Photography has been professionally photographing horses for over seven years and appreciates the connection that horses and their riders share. A horse lover herself, Marla has an innate talent for capturing the true equine spirit.


Capture a moment between you and your horse to cherish for a lifetime.

What is a better representation of your relationship with your horse than a beautiful portrait? Marla is one of the only equine photographers in Michigan and is highly esteemed for her stunning portraits. She is very personable and will take the time to learn about your vision for the photos.

Before your equestrian photography session with Marla:

  • She will work with you to pick a location. Depending on where your horse is stabled, she can either come to you or meet you at one of her past equine shoot settings.
  • Pack all necessary riding gear. Marla will photograph you both on and off of your horse. It’s good to have all of your usual gear with you to keep the horse at ease (this also includes snacks!)
  • Don’t worry about planning your poses. She will be posing you and your horse in tried and true positions that translate to stunning photos.

Marla is a fellow horse enthusiast and knows how to capture their attention without scaring them.

When people think of equine photography, they may think of a camera flash spooking the horse. That is far from the truth of Marla’s talents! She is well-versed in successfully getting the attention of a horse and quickly taking a beautiful picture without frightening it. She has seven years of experience building an immediate trusting relationship with a horse and making sure that it feels safe during the duration of the photoshoot. She promises to keep the horse’s best interest at heart and never pushes it (or its rider) beyond its capabilities for the sake of a good photo.


After directing your photo session, Marla uses elements like light, texture and color to create gorgeous prints.

She carefully dissects each photo to make sure they are up to her high standards and puts together a large selection for you to choose from. She will then send you proofs, where you can pick the ones you like the most. Let her know your picks, and she will edit them to perfection! The end result is a series of beautiful portraits that are perfectly focused, colored and in great detail. You’ll have a beautiful memory of your horse for the rest of your life!
