Be Inspired II

I am super excited today as not only have I got a plethora of amazing stuff to share with you in the next few days but myself and David have decided the winners of the free wedding photography contest! I will be announcing the winners on here as soon as I have told them!

I really loved featuring Emily’s first inspiration board on Monday and it seemed you guys did too..so hold on to your hats, here comes round two..

 

Hello again!  Today’s board was inspired by the tattooed bride in the top left corner – I love the juxtaposition between her tattoo and her pearls, and tried to strike the same balance in my board.  This wedding is elegant and restrained, vintage and at the same time sort of modern, I think.  Try a fabulously feathered headband for the bride, a dark suit and skinny tie for the groom, unexpectedly mod calligraphy on envelopes, and spiky echinacea in square mirrored boxes as centerpieces.  A classic car borrowed from a friend or auto club is a stylish – and inexpensive! – getaway.

Snow White

I am sure we all remember this gorgeous couple’s engagements and Disney themed (but totally rock n roll!) wedding. We all loved her tattoos and the amazing photographs right?  Well the very lovely Michelle of Oeil Photography knew how much we all adored them and so send me Tina’s bridal shoot as well….wooooohoooooo!

I can not even begin to put into words how much I love these shots – the location, the sexy poses, the Snow White-esque image! Just aaaamazin’!

Thank you thank you thank you Michelle! I am forever in your rock n roll debt!

Valentine’s Engagements

I’ve been receiving loads of cute engagement shoots recently (I guess it must be the season!) and I am loving posting as many as I possibly can!  This adorable set was send to be by the Bride (to be) Megan & her fiance Brodie.  I am totally in love with her cowboy boots, the guitar, the blue nail varnish and the blowing-the-dandelion shot.  Plus the shoot took place on Valentine’s day – how cute is that?!  They look like they had a barrel of laughs!
Be sure to check out Megan’s blog for her write up on the session too.

Thanks so much Megan – I can’t wait to see your wedding!

Vogue.

Fancy a little Vogue for a Tuesday morning?  Well set your eyes on these beauties by Cooper Carras…Please someone shoot some engagements just like this (and then send them to me right away!)

Aspirational.

I really love discovering little gems like this…Erica Salas Adams is an aspiring photographer that found me through Facebook (OK so she discovered me but I like to take the credit!) and send me this gorgeous engagement session that she took of her brother and his fiance.

Erica says:
I am a wife, mama, artist and aspiring photographer. I love being all of the above. I remember how excited I was when I got my first disk camera when I was 9 years old. Going to Thrifty’s and eagerly awaiting the chance to tear open my envelope and see the pictures of my friends and family. I want that feeling to never end. It’s so exciting to capture life’s most fleeting moments . Share what is beautiful. Say do you see what see? I love life. I love moments. I love color and texture and sweetness of it all. It’s taken me a while to get here. My husband is the wind beneath my wings. My son True Chance is my inspiration, he is my new found courage to opening this new door. He makes me want to be the best person I can be. God has blessed me.  

Yep, enjoy…
For more of Erica’s work check out her blog, I am particularly in love with the ‘my pretties’ series.
