Findlay Market is a great Cincinnati tradition and I love that Michaela and Martin included it as their location for their fun engagement session. The vibrant colors were so inspiring. It was great to catch up with this couple and hear more about the wedding plans. The fall weather was incredible! Michaela and Martin – thanks for being great sports. Now I can’t wait for your Spring wedding!

Engagement sessions are so much fun! An engagement book is a great way to share your fun photos. Their Spring Grove session included so many great Spring blooms. Their guests are going to enjoy sharing their favorite photos! I can’t wait for their wedding later this month!

Spring Retro Fun!

Category: Portraits | April 13th, 2011

PottingerPhotographyCincinnatiNatureCenterRetroBridalSessionSpringBridalPhotoRetroPhotoCincinnatiWeddingPhotographerCincinnatiWeddingPhotographerBlogCincinnatiRetroPhoto (12 of 29)
Imagine a hat inspiring an entire bridal session! That is just what happened! After visiting a friend in a different part of town, I popped into a vintage store and found a hat that had to be mine. It would be perfect for a retro inspired bridal session. I also noticed they had many bridal gowns. As I ran back to my car in the cold rain an idea was brewing.  What if I came back with a model and bought a dress? Spring was quickly on its way – could I pull this off with only a few weeks to plan? I remembered the flowering trees from one of my favorite engagement sessions from the previous year.  So my concept shoot for a spring retro session was underway. I used Facebook to find a model – which only took a few hours and the response was great. Next I pulled together some of my favorite wedding vendors and I shared with them my storyboard and concept. The shoot was simple and fun – something that I could use to play with some different ideas. The day of the shoot Julie (our model) had her makeup done, I picked up the flowers and then we headed to the vintage store. Who doesn’t love playing dress up? Even as adults it is fun to play and do something out of the ordinary. The great thing about the vintage store is that nothing is very expensive. We added fun earrings and a blue hat.  We hope you enjoy the photos below!
