Retro Richmond Locations

I LOVE to shoot on location. I have had the pleasure of photographing at some of the most fun homes and locations in the Richmond, VA area. Of course I'm always looking for exciting new places to shoot at. Gotta keep producing fresh new images for my clients. This year I'm reaching out to all of you in the know Richmonder's to find out what you all think are the best of the best Retro locations in Richmond. If you know of or own a retro home, office/lounge, bar, diner, car shop, barber shop or the like drop me a line. I'd love to come scout your place as a possible location for future Pin Up, or Boudoir, photo sessions.

I am also looking for a pool to do an early summer session at. The pool doesn't have to be retro but that would be a bonus, as would a diving board. It just needs to offer us enough privacy to work in peace. You know that ladies all dolled up in retro bathing suits would cause the neighbors to peek over the fence for sure.

As always vehicle owners who want to allow us to use their vintage (pre-69 please) cars, trucks, tractors etc. I am always on the lookout for new (but old haha) cars for hot rod sessions. I'd love to shoot at a farm this year with a vintage tractor too. So if you've got the farm and the tractor then you've got one interested photographer here. 

So in a nutshell I'm looking for the following.

-- Cool Pool
-- Retro Tractor
-- Vintage Hot Rods
-- Classic Diner
-- Unique Bar
-- Fabulous Retro home (prefer Mid-Century)
-- One of a kind Hotel or Bed and Breakfast
-- Vintage Aircraft
-- Other sweet retro locations

So again if you know of any place that you think 422 Studio could rock out an amazing Retro Pin Up photo session, in or near Richmond VA then I'd love to see what you've got.

Also my team is well behaved and I'm insured!!! Not to mention we are simply fabulous company!

I'd love to hear from you!

Boudoir Party Richmond, VA

So here's a scenario for you to imagine. It's your 40th birthday. You've had every imaginable type of party. You want to do something completely unforgettable because, after all, you only turn 40 once.  But what is there to do that you haven't done 39 times already? 
Host a boudoir party! 
Yes you can do it! 
Yes you have friends and coworkers that want to do it. 
It's easy and fun and it's a great way to proclaim to the world 
"It's my birthday and by god this girl can still rock it!" 

In working with my clients I hear these statements all the time:
I'm getting older and I just don't feel sexy anymore. 
I USED to be pretty.
I USED to be stylish.
I USED to feel sexy.
Well guess what! You still are, you still can and I am here to help you remember how.

Odds are if you are feeling this way you have a few friends who are too. Lets get together and my team will show you ladies just how amazing you still are. 

These shots are from a recent boudoir party right here in Richmond, VA.

 I wish I had remembered to do all of their B/A but we were having so much fun I didn't get all of them.

 Want to host your own boudoir or pin up party? 
contact me at ginger@422studio.com or by calling 804-833-0888.
I shoot only a few parties each year so contact me today to set your date.
Boudoir parties are an excellent way to celebrate your milestone birthdays, bachelorette parties, girls night outs or just because you all want to create sexy pictures.

For this session makeup and hair were done by the always amazing Jennifer Mantura.
