At Tinker Tin Trailer Co, we do trailer restoration, we rent out vintage trailers, tipi’s, and canvas tents, we style photo shoots, we dabble in interior design and event planning, and we have small line of clothing and merchandise! In all that we do though, whether it’s photo shoots or designing a trailer.. we sort of have a half hazard reckless approach! We can’t help it.. it’s in our blood! We LOVE freedom and with that comes reckless LOVE!
We have noticed at a lot of the weddings from the past year or so …. a trend I like to call the “move in your whole living room” wedding. We see many couples adding personal touches through living room lounges, and DIY and Pinterest obsessions. To us weddings are getting bigger and grander! Don’t get us wrong, we love that to… but for this shoot I wanted to portray the exact opposite!! My goal was to strip it down, and take out all the glitz and showcase a simple elopement, raw and true love.. reckless as it may be!!! Let’s runaway on our bike… and live in a trailer, and love and be real.. because at the end of the day … does the bunting and the colored straws really matter?!!
This photo shoot depicts all of the above! We worked with talented photographer Danielle Poff ! Check her out at daniellepoff.com. She only shoots in film, which is a rarity these days and is pretty badass! She has an incredible eye for details and light! Danielle’s style is very clean, modern, and fresh! We are always so blown away and inspired by her eye and all that she does! At Tinker Tin though, we like all things obscure, wild, cluttered and dare I say tacky!!? That being said, it was soo fun to find a middle ground and blend two different styles and make it work for this inspiration shoot at a private ranch in Cayucos CA! The incredible florist Asha at Wilder FLoral Company is so talented and made our 48′ Westcraft trailer pop in a way we haven’t seen yet! Stylist Sophie Moran, is incredibly creative and helped this vision of ours come to life!! Hair and Makeup was done by the amazing Martina Godwin .. she is a hair and makeup goddess.. use her people, if you need any hair and makeup done!!! The model Christina Blaney is a local girl here in town, and is talented beyond her years, and is our kindred soul! She loves old crap and old bikes to!! The male model and bike owner is a good friend of ours named Dan Collins. He owns a motorcycle shop and clothing label in Ventura called Old Gold Garage.. check it out if you haven’t before! It’s bitchin! A big thanks to everyone involved!
