Inspired by Vintage: Vintage Engagement

I received an email a few weeks ago from a girl looking for a wedding photographer. I had a good feeling about her right away and ran to check out her Engagement Board on Pinterest to see what kind of photos she was looking for. I was thrilled to see a bunch of quirky, funny and cute photos. My favorite kind of shoot is with a couple or a family willing to go wild experimenting and enjoying-- each other, me, the time we spend together creating... because it's not just 'the photographer' who creates the images; the whole shoot really relies on a group effort.

Everything started to come together and though I hadn't intended the 'fairy tale' vibe, it just started happening in editing the images. The quilt above is an antique log cabin style, just a beat up quilt I found on an auction. I took a ton of props to the shoot from my etsy shop, a pink vintage Coleman cooler, an old guitar, vintage picnic baskets and several other quilts, and when Seth picked up that guitar and started playing, I was surprised. He was fantastic. I think I fell in love with both of them!
