Banjo & Sarah – The Engagements

I love this couple. I’m sorry but I have to share their engagements as well! Do you remember the iconic London magazine, The Face?  Well these images could have been taken straight out of their pages.
Damn you MangoRED, I was going to have a light blogging evening…that went out the door as soon as I clapped eyes on your photographs! 

These guys are serious rock stars…too many to post…you simply must clicky here for more!

Somehow I don’t think I’m done posting these guys’ work..there will be more!

When I was send these by Gracci of Pelaez Photography, my immediate thought they must be taken right out of the pages of a magazine.  However on closer inspection (and reading – I always skip the text to begin with and head straight to the images!) I discovered, to my delight, that these were actually real life wedding photographs!  How stylish, how retro, how…how… envious!
It is impossible to choose just one wedding from MangoRED to share with you so hold on to your pants, I’m about to embark on a MangoRED love fest!

This Filipino photographic duo have such a great ethos, I just have to share:

Our vision is based on principles of openness, directness, irreverence, democracy and a dislike of institutions and pretensions.

We’re always looking for the culturally relevant work and staying current with the hive mind. It’s intuitive, a lot of it. We think it’s just experiencing how far you can keep your mind open on a daily basis, and paying attention.

We’d like to describe our work as a tickle in your brain. .it’s not just the quality of the idea, it’s the quality of the execution, the finish. the unique spin in colors, the lines, perspective..when these elements align, they create a visual perfume.

We believe that no matter how monstrous your talent, no matter your adeptness with concepts, your adroitness with words, with pictures, no matter how much you have learned from all the creative masters who have gone before you, it will mean nothing – no, it will mean less than nothing – if you do not love your work with all its pain and glory. .every last sweet and sour moment of it – the late nights, the lost Sundays.

We love it all. Embrace it all. Suck it all in and let it shape and form us into something amazing, something with depth and breadth and subtle variations in texture and color, the likes of which we’ve never seen.

We love what we do..the highs and lows and weave it all into what we are, and what we are to become. Inspiring us to work harder and longer and smarter than we did the day before.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy this first set of engagements and wedding photographs… Bryan & Erika

Stay tuned for some more greatness – I promise, you won’t be disappointed.  A HUGE thanks to Gracci for making me aware of this new mecca of wedding joy!

DollFace

Is this the greatest name for a company ever!? It conjures such cute, girly, pink ‘n glittery images in your head…but then when you check out their work – bam! you realise how wrong you were!

Siobhan & Darah are the photographers behind the modern, edgy, urban lens’.  Based in Philadelphia, they pride themselves on taking a fashiony, editorial approach to wedding photography, resulting in some pretty amazing images!  No one could accuse these guys of churning out the norm.

 Landa and Jeremy were the perfect couple for the girls to shoot – they wanted wedding photographs that were edgy and sexy, and isn’t that exactly what they got?!  I am in love with the Bridesmaids in particular – the mismatched black dresses are just one of my all time favourite bridesmaid dress choices!  Flattering and sexy, what’s not to love?

New Visions

Gracci from Pelaez Photography sent me some of her new fantastic engagement photographs a while ago, and I have been so busy I have only just been able to get around to posting them! Naughty blogger…

Gracci said to me:
We’re glad you liked the new engagement photos.  We hope the rest of our clients would be up for more.  We’re still in the process of defining our style and we really hope to find the right clients who are a perfect match to our visions of how to portray romance and glamour in contemporary art form.

I certainly love these…ahh the lighting!
