Crazy Horses

I think it’s pretty obvious that I am all about doing what represents you and including what you love in your wedding, and I think it’s pretty clear to see that Moira is a massive fan of horses!  This Bridal shoot was taken by the lovely Emily Porter, she explains:

I’m not sure if there are words for how wonderful this session turned out. I walk away from all shoots feeling excited, but this was just something else entirely. Part of it was because with animals (and children!), you really just have to shoot more. I think I shot over 1,350 photos in less than 2 hours with Moira and her crew of animals and friends. And I am a very picky editor when it comes to selecting final proofs – clients see nothing but the best of the best. So when I “narrowed” it down to 76 photos I was floored.

Moira is studying to be a horse vet, so quite a few of her vet school friends came along to help out and take part in the action. She contacted me back in December about this session – the photos are a surprise for her parents for her May wedding! I was thrilled to learn that she wasn’t wearing her real wedding dress – it was almost like a trash the dress session, but with a horse! We had free reign to get down and dirty for the sake of some killer photos….. what could be better?

Max Cheoul Couture

These Max Cheoul Couture gowns are clearly fabulous and gorgeous (and french so therefore probablly hugely expensive!) but I am just crazy about their amazing promo pictures…what fabulous photography!

Video Star – Mindy & Brian

Laura Randall of Edit 1 Media sent me some wonderful videos to share with you all, and I’m defiantly going to start with this one. The music video style is super cool and the couple, although seemingly rather traditional, definitely thought outside the box when it came to their ‘same day edit’. I love the swooping camera moves and the couple’s fun attitude. They didn’t go for a sappy sappy video style and the result is fantastic (we all know I love weddings more than most but overly lovely dovey videos really make me want to hurl!)  

Seeing all these fabulous videos recently is really making me wish we’d gone for a rock n roll wedding day video!

Monochrome Wedding

Remember these wonderful monochrome Bridals by Sarah Austin? Well Sarah has just sent me the wedding pictures. Hurrah! Chad and Valerie’s wedding took place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Ceremony was only 5 minutes long, and they kept it personal by only having about 80 guests of friends and family. They gave every guest a bottle of tequila as their party favor (I personally can’t stand tequila – bad experience as a 14 year old!) but I am loving the idea of alcoholic favours to get the party started!

Video Star – Paint The Dress

I am loving posting all the videos this week. It seems the word is spreading about little old me and my little old blog and I am being inundated with fabulous video content as well as amazing images..woohooo! Can’t complain about that can we?

This is totally original take on the whole ‘trash the dress’ thing.  Don’t get me wrong I love TTD…in fact I love all dress pictures really, but Darrell Aubert of Aubert Films has taken the idea to a whole new level by telling a ‘trash the dress’ story with film.

Darrell goes on to explain:
Karen [the Bride] is a local part time photographer who was really interested in the TTD phenomenon. She reached out to me to shoot an awesome video for her and her family. I gladly accepted but with one condition, that I could tell a story with her video. One thing I always disliked about TTD was the lack of focus. It was more shock and awe than anything else. I wanted to tell the story of the bride’s situation, why is she doing this?
Karen’s story was one that, I’m sure, many mothers have. 3 kids, all the chores to do, a husband more interested in the football game than her. Her life lacked the spark that she had when she got married all those years ago. Finding her wedding dress and utterly destroying it is her way of expressing her frustrations and also a way of regaining some of that spark.

To read about Karen’s take on the experience, head on over to Darrell’s blog, but for now, check this out!
