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….

Under the Spotlight – Razvan Horeanga

Credit: Razvan Photography 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 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.

Intimate.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Rock n Roll Bride favourite Tinywater, but Shay & Jenelle’s sweet and intimate little wedding has changed all that. What a perfect girlie afternoon it must have been.

Under the Spotlight – I Do Cake Toppers

Cutom5

Have you been looking for that perfect cake topper? One that’s funky, cool, original and suits you down to a tee? Well my dears I have the answer! I’m sure you’ve all heard of custom cake toppers before, but I think the ones by I Do Cake Toppers are by far the best I’ve seen.

Custom3

You simply send a photograph with your order and Christina will make a custom cake topper which is a perfect reflection of you. Your ‘mini-yous’ are the perfect touch for your special day depicting your likeness, outfits, hairstyle, pets, hobbies and everything in between. They stand approximately 8 inches high which makes them the perfect size for a keepsake after the last of the cake is gone.
Go check out the gallery of past examples and you won’t be short of inspiration.

Latex, Tattoos, Piercings & Fancy Dress Make a FABULOUS UK Wedding!

I’ve got a funny feeling you’re going to go just as crazy about these as I did. Words can not even describe really can they? Danny & Louise’s amazing alternative, British (oh yes this couple is English woooo) wedding was all about the style.

Louise’s stunning latex dress was made by Jane Doe Latex. This part certainly didn’t care about what was ‘expected’ of their wedding, not only are the pair clearly ones to play by the rules (Louise is a piercer and micro-dermal specialist and Danny is a tattooist. They are both heavily modded, both having split tongues, facial tattoos and multiple piercings) but the wedding meal after the ceremony was a trip to MacDonald’s eaten at their house!  Their evening reception and buffet was held at at our local rock bar, Sanctuary and was fancy dress, hence the grooms rather fetching nurses outfit!

Seriously guys, put your eyes back in their sockets right now and enjoy!

Hell Yeah Balloons are Punk Rock

Anthony & Shealyn were actually not engaged at the time the session took place. However, just a week after the shoot they realized that they just could not live without each other and got engaged!  I am so smitten with this session – the purple and yellow look oh so fabulous together and the couple are too damn funky for words. Photographer Sheri told me all about the day:

Other than specifying that they’d like incorporate purple balloons (which Anthony brought to Shealyn on their first date) we were left to our own creative devices. I was inspired by their edgy style and chose backdrops that would make them pop. I like the contrast of their hard, black style against the softness of the beach and the lightheartedness of the balloons.

We walked back to their apartment and they suggested hopping into the pool… mind you this was early January and cold even by San Diego standards.

Wooo! Part one of Matt & Danielle’s wedding went down a storm and part 2 is just as rad. Eeeek!

Matt’s gifts to his groomsmen were holga cameras with film. we are waiting on a couple more rolls but the next 5 photos were taken by Ray Jones. anyone who has a holga knows that its pretty for daylight exposure but without light it can be a challenge. well ray rigged one of our pocket wizards to the holga for the shots below.
