Cindy wanted high-quality branding photography of her new wedding venue, so she reached out to me, as a well-established photographer. She knew I’d be able to work with her to quickly size up the main attributes of her venue, figure out the best time to photograph each, and help connect her with other vendors to create her “dream” styled shoot. Here are some of the results:
Why Rhinehart Photography?
Cindy shares, “I was searching for someone who could take my business to the next level and capture all it has to offer while providing guidance throughout the process. I love your style of photography! I knew you could capture the simplicity of the barn and its features.”
She continues, “It was just amazing to be present and watch you take pictures of the couple. The photos were stunning! I’m not a person who likes to have my picture taken, but you got nice shots of me, too! You are so great to work with!“
Showing off the Vendors, too!
While part of my job for this branding photography session was capturing the venue, another part was forming a team and showing off the vendors and their work, too! In this case, the team was Beauty by Khara for hair and makeup and Iron Willow Floral Design for the florist. Of course, these photos wouldn’t be possible without my models, Emily and Ben. They were one of my couples from last year and I knew they’d be perfect for this shoot!
Featuring the Pond
One of Cindy’s favorite features is the pond. The light stone offsets the pretty blue water and I wanted to make sure to capture it all. I also wanted to show it to scale with Emily and Ben, too.
Cindy shares, “My favorite place at the venue would definitely be sitting by the pond. It’s beautiful and the sound of the waterfall is just breathtaking! The pond adds a calming touch and beauty, as well as another beautiful backdrop. My husband, Mike, made the pond with the help of a friend. They dug it out and added the rocks and waterfall.”
Other Areas at Alpine Acres
Cindy and I communicated before the shoot so I knew all the key places she wanted to feature and had some ideas of my own. I figured out when to go to each to take the best advantage of the light.
Cindy adds, “The barn was built in 1860, but we did update it to include heat/ac, indoor bathrooms, and downstairs amenities. We bought the 200-acre farm in 2020. It was originally intended to only be farmed but we saw the possibilities of what the barn could offer and wanted to provide others with a quiet country scene for their special day. You can’t beat the beautiful view of mountains and the countryside.”
She continues, “The pavilion offers convenience for all types of events and can even be used by performers. I’ve been doing spring and fall vendor shows. I am working on some new brochures and can’t wait to use these images on them!”
Cindy concludes, “The beautiful views of the mountains, the whispering pines, and our rustic barn— Me being a part of this venue makes me smile every time.”
