Small Town Charm 1


A few weeks ago, I was scheduled for an engagement shoot in Ingersoll, Ontario. I was not too thrilled about driving all the way out there, not knowing what kind of a setting I was going to be working with.

As the date got closer, the couple contacted me and said they had access to an old Muscle Car if I would like to use it as a prop. This is when it became very interesting and the creative juices started to flow.

When I got to the small town, I was delighted to see the setting. Leaves in full Fall colours, rolling hills and winding railroad tracks. We even got to shoot at the local Fire Station!

Anyways, this just reinforces the fact that you should never pre-judge anything. Always wait and see, the most beautiful things are usually the ones that you don’t expect much from.

A technical note, I thought that a nice warm vintage tint on this series would look nice. You can be the judge of that…
