Portraits in Arcadia, Oklahoma
Here’s a post of one of our Fall portrait sessions that I thought of today and realized I’d never blogged about. During our busiest seasons, it’s hard to keep up, so I may pull a few favorites out and share them with you. This particular session came to mind today when I was talking with a bride about doing some rustic country bridal and engagement portraits.
One of the cool things about Oklahoma is that you don’t have to drive far to find really unique, unusual settings for portraits. When Rebecca contacted us last Fall with the idea in mind of a more country, old-town feel for portraits with her son, we immediately though of this old town just East of Edmond. Doesn’t it look like someplace from the 1800’s?
I love the color and lighting in the trees of this first image…
On the way back into town, we kept our eyes open for some red color to use as a backdrop for just a few more portraits. We actually pulled off the highway to get this image and had a few pickup trucks honk their approval as they drove by. =)
I look forward to doing more of these unique locations and country feel portraits. We did several last year at customers’ ranches, homesteads, etc. out in the country, and they really make for the best personalized family portraits ever!
