Deconstructed

So these aren’t bridal at all but I totally wish they were – please someone be inspired and do something like this for a bridal shoot, how kick ass would that be?!
The model’s hat, necklace and dress are all from Frocky Jack Morgan. Store owner, Julia Barbee actually sells her reconstructed dresses to kick ass brides too, so who knows it looks like someone could rock this look for a bridal shoot after all!

Thanks to Alicia & Kenneth for sharing. MWAH!

The Last Days Of Summer

As much as we hate to admit it, summer is coming to an end. When we hit September and the kids go back to school that’s pretty much it right? Hell I had to write an article for a magazine (hehe shameless self promotion to follow soon!) about winter weddings last week for crying out loud!

However with the nights drawing in, we can’t deny that the light gets that little bit more beautiful and the evenings become that little bit more comfortable – so comfortable in fact that Rachel & Nate felt the need for a pillow fight! You gotta love these…

Thanks to the goooorgeous Duston for sharing these with us.

Breaking The Mould

It’s such an honour to be the first blog to share this amazingly themed engagement session by Joy Marie! Karnis & Alex really wanted to break the pre-wedding shoot mould and so came up with the awesome creative concept of dressing up like some of their favourite iconic images and heroes. Who can you spot?

Thanks to Joy for sharing these with us!

Love Story

With a wedding that took place in a public library (Boston to be exact) what better than copies of ‘Pride &  Prejudice” as favours and a passion in their portraits that could rival the greatest love stories. The backdrop provided almost a gothic feel to the images – the shadows; the low, moody lighting and the colours of the old books – all give such a romantic feel of history and grandeur.

Thanks to Lauren for sharing these.

Anniversary Love

As photographers, Emmy & Aaron are more comfortable being behind the camera then in front, but for their one year anniversary (this week!) they decided they deserved some gorgeous photographs of their own!

Emmy told me the whole story:
When we took a little anniversary trip to a cabin on Cowichan Lake (Vancouver Island BC Canada) I pulled my dress, by Demetrios, out of the closet and took it with us.  We had a great little cabin on the beach and there were some other perfectly decayed old buildings on the property including this great lime green shed.  The owner expressed some concern that we were making photos in front of “the biggest eyesore on the property”.  I think that old shed is perfect!.  We met over a conversation about our shared love of photography.  Pretty soon we also loved each other and now we love making photographs together.  We can’t believe how lucky we are that we found each other and that we both have the same passion.  I don’t let him shoot me that often – I like being behind the camera as much as he does – but putting that dress on tends to let you become somebody else for a while.  Doesn’t hurt that its my hot hubby behind the camera!  Everyone should do this on their anniversary – let those dresses out of the closet girls you look fabulous in them and they want to be seen!  You don’t have to be a photographer just head out and have some fun!  I LOVE my dress and it was soooo much fun wearing it again!!

Adventure Playground Of Fun

Carrie & Brian got hitched on the snow-capped Mt. Hood at The Timberline Lodge. Carrie’s amazing dress, cashmere-and-organza ruffle bolero and hair piece with chenille dot netting, feathers and flowers were all designed by Elizabeth Dye (who I have featured a few times before) an independent clothing designer in Portland, Oregon.

Their wedding was a total adventure playground of fun. To get to the venue all guests had to snow cat up steep snow slopes of Mt. Hood in a near white out snow fall. Photographers Shawn & Bonnie went on to tell me more:

Beyond that the night was full of quirk and personal style, from their unique toasts that involved in-unison speaking to their wedding vows that were a written haiku read line by line by each person in attendance.

Thanks for sharing guys!
