Fancy A Bit On The Side?

I have been overwhelmed with the lovely lovely comments I’ve received from everybody in response to my new photographs, not only on here but on Rosie’s blog, on my twitter and on facebook too!  Fancy some more?  Doesn’t Rosie just rock your world? She does mine!  Love love love them…

Impatient

I’ve been awaiting the results from this engagement shoot for ages!  Bonnie Tsang emailed me what feels like forever ago to ask if I’d be interested in featuring this session.  ‘Oooh yes yes yes pleeeeese’ I replied, not realising I’d then have to wait for about 3 weeks to see the final results.  What a tease she is!  I am a very impatient blogger don’t you know!?

Anyway, it’s aaaall good as Bonnie send me the photographs this morning…’wooohoo’ I cried, whilst getting strange looks in the office from my fellow co-workers/co-slackers.  These were certainly worth the wait.  I flippin’ love the chalkboard and Polaroid images.  Simply gorgeous.

Oh dear…now I have to wait for the wedding photographs!

Rosie Parsons Shoot – The Results!

I have been checking Rosie Parson’s website literally every 5 minutes today hoping to see some of the results from our photo shoot yesterday..and she just emailed me so show me some of the photographs!

Aren’t these fantastic?! She is such a talented lady (although I do think I look moody in a couple of these..maybe because it was so cold, although I could just be being too self-critical!)  Gareth said I look like I should be on the front cover of a magazine – yeah right, like any wedding magazine would put a pink haired Bride on their cover!

A huge thanks to Becky Simpson for working her magic on my quiff and to Sarah Brock for making me model-like with her make up brushes! 
My shoes are by Shoe Missy (but you know that, you’ve seen them before!)

Thanks for the fantastic day Rosie, and I can’t wait to see more more more!

Banjo & Sarah – The Engagements

I love this couple. I’m sorry but I have to share their engagements as well! Do you remember the iconic London magazine, The Face?  Well these images could have been taken straight out of their pages.
Damn you MangoRED, I was going to have a light blogging evening…that went out the door as soon as I clapped eyes on your photographs! 

These guys are serious rock stars…too many to post…you simply must clicky here for more!

Somehow I don’t think I’m done posting these guys’ work..there will be more!

MangoRED

When I was send these by Gracci of Pelaez Photography, my immediate thought they must be taken right out of the pages of a magazine.  However on closer inspection (and reading – I always skip the text to begin with and head straight to the images!) I discovered, to my delight, that these were actually real life wedding photographs!  How stylish, how retro, how…how… envious!
It is impossible to choose just one wedding from MangoRED to share with you so hold on to your pants, I’m about to embark on a MangoRED love fest!

This Filipino photographic duo have such a great ethos, I just have to share:

Our vision is based on principles of openness, directness, irreverence, democracy and a dislike of institutions and pretensions.

We’re always looking for the culturally relevant work and staying current with the hive mind. It’s intuitive, a lot of it. We think it’s just experiencing how far you can keep your mind open on a daily basis, and paying attention.

We’d like to describe our work as a tickle in your brain. .it’s not just the quality of the idea, it’s the quality of the execution, the finish. the unique spin in colors, the lines, perspective..when these elements align, they create a visual perfume.

We believe that no matter how monstrous your talent, no matter your adeptness with concepts, your adroitness with words, with pictures, no matter how much you have learned from all the creative masters who have gone before you, it will mean nothing – no, it will mean less than nothing – if you do not love your work with all its pain and glory. .every last sweet and sour moment of it – the late nights, the lost Sundays.

We love it all. Embrace it all. Suck it all in and let it shape and form us into something amazing, something with depth and breadth and subtle variations in texture and color, the likes of which we’ve never seen.

We love what we do..the highs and lows and weave it all into what we are, and what we are to become. Inspiring us to work harder and longer and smarter than we did the day before.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy this first set of engagements and wedding photographs… Bryan & Erika

Stay tuned for some more greatness – I promise, you won’t be disappointed.  A HUGE thanks to Gracci for making me aware of this new mecca of wedding joy!
