Abbey Ruins Shoot – Part Two

The bonus of having two photographers is that you get two different perspectives and styles, even when you’re dressed as dramatically as I was! Part two comin’ at ya…

If you missed part one, clicky here for the post. To see the set in it’s entirety, check out my flickr.

Revival

Vintage cameras are all the rage right now. I’ve seen them used as props in various engagement and wedding day shoots. However, New Yorker Robert Christian Malmberg has taken it one step further, by reviving a photographic technique popular in the 19th Century.  He uses is own Bellows camera and ‘wet plate collodion’ to create the effect you see below.  His thinking is to make timeless images that contemporary Brides will love.

Thanks so much to Robert for sharing his gorgeous and totally unique images.

Skater Chick

I am super duper excited about this wedding/wedding day shoot (as you can probably tell because I’ve featured about 40 photographs!) I saw this wedding on one of my favourite non-wedding blogs Rockstar Diaries. The enviable gorgeous girl behind the site also produces her own hairpieces which is how I first got a glimpse of the gorgeousness. I immediately emailed the photographer and couple begging to be able to share their god damn crazy awesome wedding.

Thank you to Cristi Dame, Naomi of Rockstar Diaries and the couple Amy & Matt for sharing this kick ass skater chick wedding!

Can I Title A Post…Trout?!

Looks like Ella & Ben had a great time during their engagement session with Razvan of Razvan Photography. The session took place in a teeny tiny town called Kalkaska which is defined as a ‘trout town’ due to the huge trout festival that happens there every year – who knew?!

Thanks to Razvan for sharing these session with me and I look forward to seeing their DIY laden wedding after it happens in August.

Las Vegas – Post Apocalyptic Stylee

What would happen if we woke up tomorrow and there had been some kind of nuclear crisis over night? Hell, drive (or in my case fly) out to Vegas and enjoy the new scenery of course!

Mindy and Scott have actually been married for 6 years, but unhappy with their wedding photographs they decided to seek the help of photographer team Nick Adams to give them a shoot they’ll love forever.

When She Used To Rock n Roll

Kirsten & Josh’s wedding not only had a fun, retro feel, but they really went all out with their 1950’s diner theme. I am crazy in love with the Brides entire outfit – from her Dorothy ruby slippers to her cute polka dot dress made by her Mother and friend Marnie Rogers, who designs clothes for Wintersun. The gorgeous Bridesmaid had a rockabilly style to them – especially their amazing hairdos!

For the reception, the couple went all out for a 50’s diner theme, where they designed and made everything themselves. The centrepieces were giant lolly jars and each table had a different type of old school lolly, which was the name of the table (“Sweethearts” “Milk bottles” “Ice creams” “Jelly beans” etc) The place cards were black & white candy striped lolly bags with everyone’s names on them, each painstakingly tied with little red ribbons. The placemats were old records that they picked up in an op shop and they had little gifts for everyone on the table – mini erasers in the shape of burgers, fries, hotdogs and donuts, plus vintage metal wind up toys.

Each table also had a diner style spring loaded napkin holder, salt and pepper shakers and tomato and mustard bottles. Then best of all, for dinner they served burgers, hotdogs, pizza and fries. I bet their guests were thrilled – no boring wedding food for them!

The celebrations continued into the night with the couple having their first dance to ‘I remember the Bride when she used to Rock n Roll’ by the Stray Cats, finishing the night by swaying along to ‘Earth Angel’.

Thanks to the Groom’s Mother Rhonda for sending me this wedding and to the couple for putting together all the awesome info for you all.
