This unique rustic styled shoot, brought to us by Brenda Pottinger of Pottinger Photography, features bright florals, golden light and a gorgeous blue gown! Here’s Brenda to tell us more:

Driving on the back roads of Kentucky I didn’t know quite what to expect to find as my destination across from the Ohio River. The moment I turned onto the tree lined driveway I knew that this was the kind of place that has southern charm and hospitality mixed with a quiet elegance of history.

See more after the cut!

Something magical could happen here on any given day. Walking the grounds we grew excited to plan a styled photo shoot. The stately house or a simple tall tree were equally perfect as a backdrop to a love story. On the day of our session we had a wonderful fall day with crisp air and warm sunshine.

The golden hues were cast perfectly against the fall colors on the trees. And at the very end of the photo shoot we had an amazing sunset. It was the perfect end to an incredible day.

What a beautiful collaboration; thank you Brenda for sharing! For more information about Pottinger Photography, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
