Adirondack Wedding Photographer: Vintage Cars as Props

Vintage Cars As Props For Wedding Photos

OK, a little confession here.  I really like vintage cars–always have.  At one time, my husband and I owned a red 1962 Mustang.  It was a very cool car and just a lot of fun to ride around in.  Of course with children, it was really not very practical–but I digress.  I just find vintage cars to be romantic and a little bit quaint.  Maybe they just evoke a simpler time in my head.  And let’s not forget that they are really great props in photographs.  The good thing about this is that there has been a wedding trend over the last several years in Saratoga and the Adirondack area in general of incorporating vintage/antique cars into the wedding.  And I really, really love that.

State Room Wedding Photo Vintage Car
I really love this picture of Yulia as she was arriving at the ceremony in Glens Falls. The car was provided by Tom of The State Room in Albany, NY.

The car featured above is a vintage Buick that was provided by The State Room in Albany.  I toned the image as sepia because I felt it enhanced the vintage feeling–it looks very 1930s to me.

Saratoga Springs Wedding Photographer
Same car, different day. I left the photo in color because the blue of the sky was so very vivid and the red of the car really pops.
Saratoga Wedding Photographer Vintage Car Camaro
I really like the black Ray Bans–they really match the yellow Camaro.
