As a general rule, I tend not to promote random bridal events. My personal feeling is, that if you want to go to a bridal show/sale/event you are more than capable of searching these out yourselves. However The NOT Wedding is one bridal affair I make an exception for. Not only is the concept truly unique, but by using the awesome Our Labor Of Love to photograph the show, the results really have provided some fabulous inspiration I’m sure all you guys can enjoy. The idea behind the event was to hold a wedding show that showcased some of Atlanta’s best vendors by setting up 5 fabulous fake weddings – formal, betsey (funky and hip), California, picnic and palm beach.
I love this engagement set for five reasons…the graffiti, the swings, the beach, the park and of course the smitten couple (I was going to list three but then I got a bit carried away.) It’s not often I get to mention so many fabulous locations in one shoot! Each destination gives the resulting images such a different feel don’t you think?
The graffiti shots are edgy, the swings are playful, the beach is happy and the park is romantic…this contrast shows the couple in so many different lights, and I love that.
Huge kudos to Gabe of Studio Gabe..you seriously kicked it!
I think you’re going to like this grungy photo shoot and video sent in by Mark Parker…just remember when it comes to the photographs that are going to help you remember your wedding, don’t be a fearful Bride – be a fearless Bride (OK so now I officially hate myself for actually writing that cheesiness, but you get what I mean right?!)
Super 8 video is a format that has always intrigued me. It’s beauty and rawness gives me the same tingle of excitement as Polaroid. However the sad thing is that it seems like this beautiful art form that is, like Polaroid, slowly dying out. But rejoice! London based company Reel 60 are taking steps towards changing that. Their super 8 short films are touching, inspirational and retro in it’s purest form.
OK, maybe I’m guilty of rambling a bit here, but I am just a little bit over-excited to share a couple of their videos with you. Maybe a lot of you won’t have seen any Super 8 movies before…and you really should you know!
