What do you get when you add willing newlyweds, some fun vintage props, awesome photography, and a gorgeous Virginia farm with wildflowers and horses!? Why a post-wedding photo session, of course! This next photo shoot was sent over by Vicki at My Simple Details. She worked together with photographer Kate Triano and Growing Wild Floral Company to put together a vintage Virginia farm after-wedding photo shoot for Maria and Michael.
From Vicki: Maria and Michael were married in Delaware. Kate and the couple didn’t have a lot of time for portraits on their actual wedding day, so they wanted to do another shoot a few months after their wedding date to give them lots of lovely images to cherish. This is a great example of how scheduling a first look session before your ceremony can ensure that you have the time to get the images you will treasure forever.
For this styled day after shoot, we had free control over the design and details. We brought in our 1966 Chevy truck and a vintage RC machine among other nostalgic items. Barbara, the talented florist behind Growing Wild, was not only willing to provide the bridal bouquet and wild flowers from her garden, but also allowed us to use her farm in northern VA and her amazingly calm horses for the shoot. The blanket that I personally love, I made by hand and used Anna Maria Horner fabrics purchased on Etsy. I also love the old tractor Barbara had that was overgrown with weeds.
Ok, I had to cut if off, I was having such a hard time picking pictures. They were all so pretty! Makes you want to find a farm in Virginia, doesn’t it!? Thank you so much Vicki for sending Maria and Michael’s vintage farm shoot over.
