My favorite weekend activity (if I am not photographing a wedding) is to go tag sale-ing. Or strolling over a flea market.
I am OBSESSED with all things VINTAGE. I just love that shabby chic look and feel. There is a certain coziness that comes with vintage furniture or items. This, too, is why I had to put old beams from our barn into our house – to make it warm and cozy. Our house is stuffed with cool vintage items: we have an awesome little vintage buffet (from an estate sale in Germany), a little vintage sofa (which Brooke found at a consignment store on Cape Cod) a vintage dining table (which my dad actually built when he was in this early 30′s), vintage candle holder, vintage vases, vintage picture frames…. I guess you are getting the point: I love all things vintage.
This said, you can only imagine how much I enjoyed today’s vintage photo session for a very cool new store in Fairfield which will open its doors early next year. I am not giving it away yet – but so much can be revealed – all brides that are looking to add a vintage/whimsically, shabby chic look and feel to their wedding – this will be THE place for you! And you won’t have to break the bank either!! So come and check back in for more information about this amazing new store soon.
By the way – these pictures are the first ones taken with my new Nikon D3s camera. Yes, I switched to Nikon. It’s official. And I could not have imagined a more perfect photo shoot to test out my new favorite toy :). The pictures this camera takes are just so – wooohooww – amazing. I was blown away by the crispness and speed and accuracy of this camera. It’s simply insane! When I thought the D5 was a great camera – well – then this one is – hmmm – intergalactic! :)
