When I say I am excited to show these photos I really mean it. I know I say it far too much but we just love our clients and the funtastic things they bring to each shoot. There are your run-of-the-mill details that can be added, there are sentimental details, there are quirky/fun details….well this shoot added one gigantic vintage detail that left our jaws on the ground.
Lindsay and Keith drove up from South Carolina to Lindsay’s moms old stomping ground outside Amherst, VA. The drive to the venue was breathtaking, the weather perfect, and these two lovebirds brought the sweet and spicey to this shoot.
We started off at a quaint little shop where the marquee boasted of their “Fried Pies”. I vacillated from fascinated what it would taste like to clutching my heart at the mere thought of the cholesterol in one slice. Only in the south! Lindsay and Keith started off with some cool ice cream as we warmed into the shoot. Did you catch all that??? Cool to warm….did you see it? It is so early in the morning…this is all I got! I digress….
Anyway….let’s get to the good stuff before I completely out myself as the biggest goober ever.
So I mentioned that Lindsay and Keith brought the COOLEST prop ever. We were told what to expect…but nothing prepares you for the majesty of this detail until you run your fingers down each and every sexy curve. This, my friends, is a ‘56 Thunderbird in fiesta red. The only year this color was made. She is every bit as gorgeous and I am sad to say these photos don’t remotely do it justice. I’m going to do a slow reveal to tease your senses a bit.
For those thinking about venturing into off-camera lighting in the day time…here is your chance to see the difference in what effects you can achieve. These two shots are by me (Kelly) using natural light. Ladies…notice her NEON yellow heels. Bonkers…absolutely adored that bold move in styling.
These two are by Ryan using off camera lighting. Still natural, little more polished and warm.
See if you can figure out the next few which ones are natural lighting versus off camera.
We wanted to create a “Drive-In Movie” feel but the sun was still pretty high. Through the magic of lighting Ryan was able to create an evening feel with the sense of a movie screen being projected at Lindsay and Keith. I stood in the background doing nothing but encouraging him….haha.
Lindsay and Keith…we couldn’t have asked for more with your shoot. Everything seemed to be going in our favor that night. We had so much fun shooting your session. Lindsay, I still say you have an inner diva that needed to come out that night. You worked that blue dress and the car like a professional. A++ on sass!
We hope you enjoy seeing these photos as much as we enjoyed editing them. Very proud of this shoot.
