I love this shoot and I love the inspirational Bride in her ‘something blue’ Doc Martins, but more than that I love the story that goes along with this set.
Photographer Jennifer Williams explained:
The highlight of the shoot has got to be being pulled over by the Kern County Sheriff! Heather and I took a few shots at a bridge. Little did we know what a scene it would cause. When I left Heather sitting at the bridge while I went to get the car (her shoes were cute but not so comfortable) people called in reporting a suicidal bride getting ready to jump! Lucky for me, the sheriff thought it was really funny. When I explained we were doing a photo shoot, and there was not a run away bride wasn’t about to jump off the bridge, he sent us on our way.

What you’ll probably first notice about this set (apart from the Bride’s wicked tattoo and the wedding’s cute daisy theme) is that the photography is a little different. Photographer Katie Malone uses a variety of techniques to make her work stand out from the crowd.
First we have the Holga images, an inexpensive ‘toy’ camera that produces distorted and low-fidelity images. The effect is dramatic light leaks (the red intrusions) blurs and vignetting (the soft dark edged images). She accompanies this with the use of infra-red (in black and white and with complete colour washes) and TTV (Through the Viewfinder) images. The latter looks a little like a Polaroid and produce a vintage looking, square image with a dark black border.
These techniques aren’t for everyone, but I’m sure any Rock n Roll Bride can appreciate the originality and quirkiness of the result.
Thanks to Katie for sharing…

Before reading this post, it is required that you head over here and have this tune playing in the background…
So, you may have noticed a few little tweaks to the Rock n Roll Bride you’ve come to know and love today (if you’re reading this on RSS then come on over and see!) Following the readers survey of a few months ago, I decided the site was in need of a little spring clean and spruce up. I enlisted the help of the very wonderful, ridiculously talented and charming Rhiannon Burton of Under The Cherry Moon. Rhiannon, a graphic designer from London, left her job as a midwife to follow her dream of designing quirky and stylish wedding stationary. Her site is still in the very early stages, but I hope you can see from my header alone how crazy talented she is and how amazingly gorgeous her designs are!
I must also give a huge thank you followed by a big sloppy kiss to my hubby who put the whole thing together for me, and put up with my tireless nagging (as only a wife can do) of Is it ready yet…? Is it ready yet…? Is it reeeeady yet…?
Also, I am still plowing my way through the re-categorising and tagging of every single post, and with over 1000 under my belt it is taking some while so please bear with me!
Be sure to let me know what you think of my site’s new outfit!
The bonus of having two photographers is that you get two different perspectives and styles, even when you’re dressed as dramatically as I was! Part two comin’ at ya…
If you missed part one, clicky here for the post. To see the set in it’s entirety, check out my flickr.

Vintage cameras are all the rage right now. I’ve seen them used as props in various engagement and wedding day shoots. However, New Yorker Robert Christian Malmberg has taken it one step further, by reviving a photographic technique popular in the 19th Century. He uses is own Bellows camera and ‘wet plate collodion’ to create the effect you see below. His thinking is to make timeless images that contemporary Brides will love.
Thanks so much to Robert for sharing his gorgeous and totally unique images.

I am super duper excited about this wedding/wedding day shoot (as you can probably tell because I’ve featured about 40 photographs!) I saw this wedding on one of my favourite non-wedding blogs Rockstar Diaries. The enviable gorgeous girl behind the site also produces her own hairpieces which is how I first got a glimpse of the gorgeousness. I immediately emailed the photographer and couple begging to be able to share their god damn crazy awesome wedding.
Thank you to Cristi Dame, Naomi of Rockstar Diaries and the couple Amy & Matt for sharing this kick ass skater chick wedding!
