1. Tuf Cooper & Tiffany McGhan
This session took place in April, in the middle of Tuf’s record-breaking year. He finished 2017 by breaking the regular season earnings record for tie-down roping. He entered the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada with the coveted #1 back number and left the event with the 2017 All-Around Cowboy World Champion belt buckle AND a gorgeous fiancé. Tuf proposed to Tiffany during the awards ceremony on national television!

This shoot was a collaboration with Devin Territo Makeup for an article she & Shelby Ratliff wrote for GoHorseShow in 2015. The images were featured in this blog post (click here) on makeup tips in the show arena.
