Elated.

The Sloan’s are those kind of photographers who’s work gets snapped up and featured the second they blog it. So you can imagine my elation to receive an email from the pair who asked if I would like first dibs on Heather & Austin’s engagement session. A pink haired chick and that Californian light? Seriously guys, there was no question!

Here we go then my pretties, which one of you lovely ladies is the luck winner of the custom brooch by Sana of WristieLove - designed especially to fit your wedding theme?

I thought long as hard about this, but my favourite entry, and the winner is….

Bowie Bride who said:
Hands down fave: The Mini-Pearl Clockhand Brooch. We’re having a vintage-y, David Bowie-inspired, handmade decor, homemade beer, non-gender-specific bridal party, with my sister playing electric guitar as we float down the ol’ aisle, kinda wedding. We’re not really tied down to color – just a bunch of pastels mixed with black, red, peach, and off-white. We want it to look homemade and antique-y, so this brooch would be a fantastic addition. i would use it to pin on my bouquet – i am making my bouquet from scratch out of pins, brooches, handmade t-shirt flowers, newspaper, and whatever else ‘pretty’ i can find. This brooch is stunning and I would be honored to receive it.

Congrats! Sana will be in touch to get all the details to make your prize perfect. I can’t wait to see the result!

Don’t forget, the Love Me Do Photography contest is still very much open. Who wouldn’t want free wedding photography!?

Rainbow

When I received a sweet email from Lizeth & Rafter asking if I’d like to check out their engagement session I was shocked to discover that their super modest and a-a-amazingly talented photographer Brion Hopkins had never submitted any of his work to a blog before! Blog land has seriously been missing out! I am nuts about all the colour. Each photo looks like it has it’s own little rainbow shining down on it…yummy.
