It’s that time of the week again…nom nom nommy treats time! The awesome main image to today’s Treats was sent over to me yesterday by the wonderful Kirsty Mitchell. I like to think of it as an extension of my birthday! Isn’t she is incredible? Be sure to go check out her blog post with the story of the shoot. What a lot of work. I totally think it was worth it though!

♥ I fell in love with this slightly dark, Alice inspired, ‘What a Wonderful World’ concept shoot
I love a shoot with a great story behind it…especially when it revolves around people I know! When bride-to-be Laura checked in on Rock n Roll Bride a few months ago she fell in love with the work of UK photographer, David McNeil. She promptly contacted him to arrange an engagement shoot in Brighton. Her fiance Nick and her turned up on the morning of the shoot, only to discover that unbeknownst to both of the boys, they already knew each other! David and Nick actually used to work together long before David tried his hand at wedding photography and Nick got engaged…but wait the tale gets stranger because when David sent me these images it turns out I used to work with Nick too! What a small world…
Nope this isn’t one of my photo shoots – but model Jennifer and I sure to have one (very pink) thing in common! The shoot took place in Richmond, VA at Belle Isle which is a park that has a large suspension bridge that takes you to another small island that has several abandoned buildings including an old power plant on it – perfect shooting ground!
“The power plant is really cool, lots of graffiti and crumbling architecture” photographer Jan told me. “Her dress was bought at a thrift store for $3, we added the black sash to give it more character. She was an awesome model, with great pink hair and lots of style I hope to photograph her wedding eventually. I love your blog by the way. It’s completely along the lines of what I’m interested in and I love to see other photographers and brides that are unique and have style not typical boring brides.”
