Is it just me, or are shoots with props the actual best? They absolutely can make or break a photo session and I have so say (apart from balloons of course…I still can’t get over them!) these have got to be some of my favourites. A vintage suitcase, a lace umbrella, the massive flowers, a retro camera…these are all so simple yet so darn beautiful!
Today is Sunday and although it seems strange to me that the whole world isn’t sat at home online (yes I am a total geek) it appears to be a slow day on the old world wide web. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to draw your attention to my wonderful sponsors – I quite frankly think every single one of these guys rock, and I am completely honoured to have them as a permanent feature of my site. Share the link love and have a little click over to their site’s if you’re at a Sunday loose end.
Erica Bergerhas that San Fran cool thing down to a T and she is hoping to soon bring her unique style to destination weddings as well. Her photography is second to none and I literally adore every single image she has ever shot! Her work is fresh, luminous and always makes me feel sunny and warm! I could browse her flickr stream all day long and always find something to make me smile. Erica will be travelling to New York to spread some of her photographic happiness from July 28th to August 5th 2009. If you are in New York (you lucky thing!) then she is offering photo shoots at $500 including all the edited photographs afterwards. How who wouldn’t want that!? ps I demand the photographs for blogging afterwards!

They specialise in fabulously original, cutting edge, modern photography that never ceases to take my breath away. Not one of their photo shoots have ever bored me and no two are ever the same. If you haven’t checked their work out before you are most definitely missing out!
Robin Roemerworked for several years as a full time photographer and photo editor for MTV Networks. She has photographed music legends such as Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox and the B-52s and new artists like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. Her wedding photography is fresh, clean and subtly spectacular – she truly captures a New York wedding at its best.
David McNeilwas born in Scotland but now resides in Chiswick, West London. A close friend of mine, I have been lucky enough to see his wedding photography blossom from this teeny tiny idea of a thing right up to this all encoumpasing photographic style that is taking the UK wedding scene by storm and braking the mould of the traditional, dull wedding photographer (seriously if only he’d figured out his calling sooner – we would have totally had him shooting our wedding!) I am very lucky to have such a talented friend who has taken many a good photograph of even me! I cannot rave about David enough. Go check out his site, like now.

If you plan to get married on the 4th July, then what other theme could you possibly choose? Christine & Cole went for a glorious red, white and blue colour scheme with vintage, retro touches. The whole day has been perfectly captured by the wonderfully vibrant photography of Michelle Warren and the gorgeously vintage super 8 film of Lola Film + Video.
If I was American I’d be feeling all partrotic right about now…
Thanks to Michelle for sending me both! wonderful…
WOAH! Is this wedding one of the most gorgeous you have ever seen?! The location is of course stunning but I love all the personal touches…and I think it goes without saying that Angie’s dress is to die for…wow wow WOW
