1920′s Glam

I’m pretty sure you’re going to go crazy over these. Austin & Megan’s 1920′s themed wedding is right up m street. I love it all – the flowers, the dresses, the hairpieces, the venue, the cake, the Groom’s awesome beard and the coolest Bridesmaids I’ve seen in ages…in fact I am more than a little bit jealous!

You should really clicky here for their slideshow

Thanks so much Karen!

UnBlogged Talent

One of my favourite flickr groups is the ‘Starting Your Own Photography Business’ group. Here, I find some amazing unblogged talent just crying out to be shared. So methinks it’s only fair that I share some of group admin, Ken Keinow’s gorgeous photographs.
This wedding grabbed my attention straight away – from the purple shoes, to the dramatic wide wide wide group shot, from the beautiful flowers to the stunning rustic barn location. These are just dying to be posted!

Be sure to check out Ken’s blog for more…

Crazy People…You Got Some Wicked Style

Alissa & Rich send me their gorgeous engagements yesterday and with some vintage fashion like this how could I refuse a little post, in fact Alissa’s green dress was only $30..now that makes me jealous!

It seemed that their photographer, Laura Greer loved this couple and this shoot just as much as me…from her blog:
This shoot is one of my FAVORITE shoots that I have done in a
while…what I loved about it was the spontaneity and what Alissa and
Rich each brought to the shoot.  They told me that they were NOT beach
people, so we figured we’d wing it in Hollywood. He shows up in a
slick suit; She brings colorful balloons and cute sun dresses and
other than that we had ZERO plan, except to meet at the Arclight in
Hollywood.  It was SUCH an adventure that involved running through
alleys and halfway houses trying to find access to areas to shoot and
just discovering little oasises of cool colors and textures amidst  a
concrete jungle filled with some seriously CRAZY people.  The funny
thing was that we TOTALLY BECAME  the “crazy people”, especially when
I scaled a 10 foot fence in broad daylight…all for the sake of that
“perfect shot”.  I have a hurt ankle too from soccer, so it was a bit
of a feat for me…but CHECK OUT the crazy life size television set that
we found in a locked up parking lot in Hollywood!  Once we saw it we
were determined to find a way to get in there…And we did!  I am all
about finding crazy colors and textures…Just look at what you can get
even in one of the ugliest areas of town!…but it also helps to have a
bride who is an actress and a groom that takes Tae Kwon DO…I mean
SERIOUSLY!  You two rock!”

Hey no fair…I wanna strut my stuff inside a huge fake telly too!

Contemporary Love

Some more of the super modern for you. Canadian photographer Amber Hughes has really captured the drama of the contemporary architecture, whilst staying true to the portrayal of the couple in love…

Uncomplicated Drama

Right, I have been incredibly rock n roll today and fell asleep when I got back from work at 2pm..in my defence I do have to get up at 4am for my ‘day job’ so it’s not like I am totally pathetic! Anyway the result of which was I now have loooads of amazing stuff to catch up on so I better get going!

Sarah Yates is another one of my Twitter discoveries, and when I saw her website I was shocked that I hadn’t found her earlier.. .appalled (at myself!) almost. Her photography is soooo good. Check out Keenan & Sarah’s weddingfor example – modern, chic, editorial, fashionable – these are just some of the words that pop into my head and the photographs could literally be straight off the pages of a high fashion magazine.  Even though these are quite uncomplicated in colour (and we all know I am all about the super brights) these just totally work for me and are really dramatic in their simplicity.

Contrast

I love to see contrast in images. Take this bridal session by Carl Zoch for example – traditional wedding dress on a  tattooed bride, dark hair with pink highlights, glamorous photographs taken in a derelict location…this is the stuff I love, and the is the stuff that really makes you stand out!

Thanks to Bertie for sending these my way, and Carl for letting me share his gorgeous work!
