My photography passion began with my work as a member of the equine media industry, traveling around the east coast (and sometimes beyond) to photograph horse shows such as the North American Youth Championships, American Gold Cup, Kentucky Three-Day Event, World Equestrian Games, and more.
As my love for event photography grew, so did that for portraiture. A longtime equestrian and avid blogger, I spent years capturing images of my own horse, Axcent, before realizing that I could help others get the same picture-perfect images I was after. Thus, Terisé M. Cole Photography was born!
Though based in Central Massachusetts, Terisé M. Cole Photography serves the photography needs of equestrians all over New England, specializing in equine events and portraiture.
I booked Terisé after seeing her wonderful work online. From the time of booking through receipt of the photos, she was nothing but professional and courteous with all interactions. Terisé was very flexible when scheduling. She wanted to make sure that we had ideal light, foliage and optimal weather. She gave me some sample work to help determine what time of day I would like in terms of light. She also asked ahead of time what type of style of photography to make sure she catered to my liking.
In terms of the shoot itself, I cannot say enough great things. Terisé made sure my horse and I were happy and relaxed the entire time. She was patient if the either of us needed a break. Overall I can't say enough good things. She captured the start of my new partnership in a fun and candid manner, all at an affordable price. Can't wait to do another shoot in 2019!
Terisé has an amazing ability to capture the most organic moments—each photo she took of me and Mary was different, unique, and showed both of our personalities. She's fantastic and fun to work with—Mary wasn't always the most willing participant, but Terisé took it all in stride and made it work.
