Bonnie & Cabe’s Santa Barbara engagement session is the perfect prequel to their wedding, also in Santa Barbara, this summer. However when the couple first told photographer Paul they wanted their engagement session to be at their apartment and favourite local spots, he was actually kind of worried that the photos would turn out less dynamic and exciting to what he usually likes to shoot. He needn’t have worried! The session took place on the most beautiful sunny winter day and with Bonnie, an artist and photographer and Cabe, a musician, he was set up for the perfect shoot for this creative couple.
“They were coming up with a ton of ideas and remained chill and jovial all day.” Paul explains “You know how sometimes the photos we admire and look back at the most, are often the most basic … sitting on the couch, talking with a friend, etc. I think we nailed it. They also really wanted to emphasize their California roots … we’ll see even more “homegrown” sunshine-state flavor at the wedding this July for sure!”

As you all no doubt will have seen by now, I had a very exciting announcement to make yesterday. After over a year of working 2 jobs I’ve finally got to the stage where I feel I can cut back on my ‘proper job’ and put more into Rock n Roll Bride. Anyway, as I said before, none of this would be possible without you. Seriously, without you brides (and grooms!) to be, photographers, bloggers, wedding vendors and wedding / pretty picture obsessives reading, submitting and generally loving my little blog, I’d be nothing and Rock n Roll Bride would be no more. So I wanted to give a little something back – LOVE!
I popped into my favourite shop Topshop yesterday and saw a pink version of one of my favourite necklaces. I had to buy it right away and I want to give it to one of you. To enter I want you to email me (email@example.com) a picture including the words ‘Rock n Roll’. It can be a drawing, a painting, a photograph, a collage…and the words can be written, spelled out with body parts, super-imposed…anything, let your imagination run wild! Get creative and I’ll share the best ones on the blog next week. Be sure to include your own website/blog url (if you have one) with your entry so I can share some link love back.
Now, let’s be honest, I do actually have a lot of male readers too who may not be jumping up and down with excitement over a sparkly pink necklace. However I would love it if still wanted to take part in order to get your creative ideas shared on the blog. I’m taking to you male photographers here! I’m not only excited about giving something away but I’m dying to see what ideas you can all come up with… hey, I’m sure you cool dudes know at least one lovely lady who loves pink glitter!
My favourite picture will win this darling little bit of love – from me to you….and to get you started, here’s one my bestest friend Carly made for me…
…and my ridiculous attempt! haha…yes it’s rubbish – I’m sure you can do much better!
♥ You have until Thursday 18th March to get your entries in and the winner and my favourite images will be shared on Friday 19th March ♥

I was blown away by Carla & Neetling’s South African wedding, in particular the phenomenal DIY vintagey, rustic and natural details and her beautiful dress. Carla and her Mum did most of the wedding themselves and loved personalising all the details.
The wedding took place at Kleinevalleij, Wellington SA and Carla looked stunning in her Robyn Roberts dress, Ninon Louw shoes and awesome white lace tights!
