When my in-laws were cleaning out their garage, I was really inspired by an old red bike they considered giving away. I promised that we would use it for a photo session… and true to my word, a whole story evolved from that bike!
For this shoot, I teamed up with stylist & photographer Caitlin Buck of Simply Photography. I actually met her at Ashley & Jimmy’s wedding last May. Shortly after she introduced herself, she said something about shooing with a Nikon as well and I liked her! She makes a lot of her own props & headpieces for her clients! She is incredible! We bounced ideas back & forth, then she brought so much creativity & enthusiasm to this set.
We set up the shoot (Caitlin and I arrived with two very full SUVs of props) at Brumbaugh Fruit and Fun Farm. They are located just outside of Arcanum, Ohio and have a large apple orchard as well as fun games for the kids and treats. You’ll probably remember our newlyweds, Ashley & Jimmy from here. They brought their adorable pups, Marino (Golden Retriever) & Lucca (Pomeranian)!
It was Ashley’s birthday weekend, so I baked a cake with a rustic bunting top!
A golf cart went by at just the right time to create a really beautiful haze of dust in the background. I want to bring one to every shoot now.
Isn’t she lovely?
Mini Apple Cider doughnuts from Tim Hortons. I have an addiction to their hot chocolate with whipped cream.
Caitlin hollowed out the apples to make little cups… so cute!
Caitlin also made headpieces for the pups… I LOVED this idea! I also love when clients bring their “kids!”
This vintage Love Story was also featured on the beautiful blog, Postcards & Pretties!
Yesterday I hinted on my Facebook page that there will be an announcement on here, please check back tomorrow for all the details! â™¥
