Grungy, Decaying Attic Fashion Shoot

Sometimes the non-bridal stuff I get sent it so freakin’ awesome that it would be crime against humanity (and in this case fashion) not to share it. Karolina Skorek is a painter and photographer from Poland who’s just opened a photography studio here in the UK. This amazing shoot was done with her friend and fashion designer Ewelina Sliwa. Aren’t her designs just wonderful? I love the grungy, decaying feel to this attic shots. Fabulousa!

Brighton Belle

I just wanted to share a few images from Jed & Sarah’s funky yet classic Brighton wedding. Brighton is a really eclectic town on the South coast of England.

Brighton is full of eccentric characters and this wedding was so fun and quirky, even the registrar had kooky shoes and piercings.  The bride and groom were very cool – her mother in law made the dress and I think she looks fab, they got wed in the pavillion, then onto a double decker to the Grand Hotel for some food and drinks….It was all about their colourful personalities and the offbeat alternative nature of Brighton which I made sure to feature in as many of the shots as possible.

Amy & Jay and Their Way too Awesome New York Wedding Day

I may well be stating the obvious here, but Amy & Jay’s wedding is freakin’ awesome. Hell to the yeah…I love to blog this stuff!

We were married on 01/02/10 in Brooklyn, NY. We really love our neighborhood and wanted to keep it local, allowing our guests to fully experience the day in Williamsburg Brooklyn. We had our ceremony and three course vegan meal at a place called Monkey Town. As a wedding gift, one of our best friends/dancer/aerialist/choreographer, Sarah Wollschlager, did an aerial performance to Etta James’ “At Last,” which contributed to the uniqueness and beauty of our ceremony. Our officiant, from the Brooklyn Society of Ethical Culture, Tasha Paley, also made the ceremony even more personal- she brought laughter to our guests and made several of us shed a tear while reading an excerpt from “The Little Prince.”

We then had the reception at Trophy Bar, which included an open bar, dancing, vegan cupcakes, and a photobooth. For the photobooth, two of our best friends created a caution tape backdrop and set up a wireless remote, allowing the guests to get ready and pose! As far as vegan cupcakes in NYC go, Babycakes is the absolute best…we were so relieved that all of the non-vegan guests really loved them! They also made us a 6″ cake, where we put our super cute monster cake toppers, created by Leslie Levins.  It was absolutely an incredible day and it wouldn’t have been what it was without our amazing friends!

Amy had two dresses – the ceremony dress was found on Ebay and was a similar design to Maggie Sottero’s Rasharna dress, which she loved but when she saw the less-fussy Ebay version she was sold! Her reception dress was from Betsey Johnson’s Spring 2008 collection. She carried a felt bouquet by Jennifer Rae of Ribbons n Bows Boutique (who she discovered through Rock n Roll Bride!)

Wanna see more? Check out their slideshow! Oh…and their wedding invitation video is too damn cool for words (check it out after the jump…)

Snuggle Up

It seems to be starting to get bloomin’ cold everywhere again…so what better way to ‘celebrate’ than to share some more snowy engagements!? I have to say, the indoor shots seem a lot more appealing to me right now. Is it nearly summer time yet?

Today’s Under the Spotlight victim is a guy I’ve been lucky enough to know (as in online-know) for a long time now. Razvan Horeanga first contacted me waaaay back sometime last year, when Rock n Roll Bride was merely a teeny tiny speck on the blogging map, and asked if I wanted to feature some of his gorgeous photography. Lucky for me (and you!) Razvan has never failed to share wonderful work with me (clicky, clicky) and I’m really chuffed that I’m able to share a little bit more about him with you today. OK on with the show….

Lucky for me (and you!) Razvan has never failed to share wonderful work with me and I'm really chuffed that I'm able to share a little bit more about him with you today. OK on with the show.... Who are you and what do you do? I am Razvan, a wedding photographer passionate about getting the most amazing pictures for my couples on their wedding day. I am very grateful that my passion became a big part of who I am. I havea very supportive wife and a cute cat. Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in? I am in Columbus, OH. I love to travel. I’ve been to a dozen of countries and I am up for any destination. Who/what are your biggest influences? Who do you really admire? I would lie if I would say I did not follow other wedding photographers’ work in the beginning. It’s good to see what others are doing, but I think too much influence limits the creative process. I prefer to find my influences in movies, documentaries. Sometime, I would find myself absorbed in some European movie. “Il postino” is a great movie, and it depicts love in such a poetic vision. What or who made you get into photography? I always liked to take pictures of almost everything. I started reading about photography, got into some photography internet groups, bought many books about photography and I would then take pictures applying what I’ve learned. Photographing people is just an extraordinary experience and totally different. How would you describe your photography? It’s about people. Beautiful people in love and their story. And I am photojournalist. I just let everything happen and I will capture it with my camera. What do you love about weddings? On a wedding day, you have to be aware of everything that is happening because there is no second chance as a photographer. I like to be under pressure and it’s rewarding to have your work appreciated by the couple, their families and their friends. I love to see everything that was envisioned by the couple for their wedding come together, see their happiness, the joy of their families and everything in between. I am there to make sure that the couple will never forget this experience by telling their story in pictures. What has been the highlight of your career as a wedding photographer so far? It never gets old: getting to see the look of happiness of the couple when I give them the pictures. What role have wedding blogs played in promoting you and your work so far? Kat, you’re doing an amazing job at keeping the couples connected to the reality of weddings by promoting photographers’ work and the work of other vendors. Wedding blogs are different from the traditional advertising and it’s great because you get to see the feedback in an instant. Do you have any advice for budding photographers out there who want to get into weddings? Just keep learning, make sure you know the inside and out of your camera before you start shooting a wedding, have backup equipment and know your light. What can we expect from you in 2010? You haven’t seen anything yet! All my couples are gorgeous and I have some pretty cool ideas and techniques I want to try out this year. Thanks to Razvan for taking the time to share his ass-kicking photography with us. For more information about Razvan Horeanga and to see even more examples of is brilliance, head over to his website.
