Rain Check

Fancy perving over a plethora of engagement shoots? Well head on over to Steep Street Musings. Kelty is a ridiculously talented photographer, web designer and maker of satchels (is there anything this girl can’t do?) and her engaged sister Hannah has been raving all about her to me..aww sisterly love!

This ‘rain check’ session is one of my favourites as they prove you don’t have to have glorious sunshine for fabulous photos…in fact the rain water on the ground makes for some brilliant reflections and you get the bonus of interesting, moody sky!

If you fancy some non-wedding gorgeousness, you most definatly have to check out this cupcake photoshoot…another one of my favourites!

A Full Report

I received an email this morning from a very enthusiastic Krisha who had just got back her gorgeous wedding photographs from Pat Dy and her wedding video from Threelogy Video. I’m going to share her gorgeous wedding photos right here..but for the video you have to head over to the brand spangly new Rock n Roll Bride video channel and watch this (please subscribe, it will make me happy!)

Krisha & Jake got married in January of this year in The Philippines and described Rock n Roll Bride as “very essential in the planning process from finding suppliers to looking at thematic concepts” (I kid you not..I’m going to keep that quote!)

Below is a little bit from Krisha about their traditional/rock n roll fusion wedding:
In Chinese tradition, 8 is believed to be the luckiest number.  In our case we were together for 8 years before deciding to tie the knot.  It took 8 months to prepare our wedding which may not be the best, but definitely exactly what we envisioned.  Vintage Glam Rock.  
 
We wanted a wedding filled with really really great music spiced with 1950’s details….Eager to incorporate the Classic feel, the wedding nvolved vintage elements from 1950’s such as having silver monochromatic motif for the entourage ball gowns designed by yours truly together with Ding Marquez.
Some guiding details included feathers, headpieces, photo booth, wedding wish tree, Sugarbox’s quilted cake, English hats for guests and red low-set floral arrangement in the old school country set-up of Canyon Woods Clubhouse….

I am lucky to have found my lucky charm and I am looking
forward to spend the next 88 years with him

How sweet is she!? Enjoy the millions of gorgeous photographs below (sorry I’ve posted so many, but as Krisha send them directly to me and I can’t just add a link to say go here for the rest I feel the need to share as many as possible!)

Brick.

This is my kinda Bride, drinking champers out of the bottle!  Quite apart from those alcoholic tendencies, how gorgeous are these photographs by Zach John Hammond? The bricks as a backdrop to their portraits is brilliant – I love the contrast but it’s a completely different effect to using a brightly coloured wall isn’t it?

EDIT: Zach just linked to RnR Bride on his blog and included a fabulous quote that I am going to keep forever…I love Kat’s take on wedding essence. Its all about the fun, funny, and personal…not so much the cliche…unless of course thats your thing.  So rock on.”
Love it!
Thanks Zach!

Photo Fusion

Are you guys liking all the videos I have been sharing? Feedback is always nice….I certainly am and this one sent in by Jim Green of Vital Memories is no different.  In his own words, Jim has created a fusion – combining his love of photography, cinematography and music resulting in this beautiful little film. 
“On your wedding day, add some motion and more importantly, natural sound to your pictures, to truly come alive on the big screen. Fusion helps to tell the story that can be missed with just photographs by blending video clips into a creative film, all from a single camera. Adding video clips to great photos is a wonderful way to capture the entire essence of your day!”

Infinitely Better

Video video video..it is aaaaaall about the amazing videos this week and I am loving every minute. In fact I have enjoyed featuring so many gorgeous little films that I have decided to spread the proverbial Rock n Roll branch to encompass more video content that I ever thought I would. I have (literally just signed up to and) launched the Rock n Roll Bride video channel on Vimeo, a place where you can go and see all the videos I have loved and posted here on the site. I will also be endeavoring to make the video section of the blog a lot more prominent, so if you’re coming here looking for video inspiration you’ll be able to locate it all very easily (this is a working progress and relies on my very busy Husband to do some coding for me so may take a little while!) but for now head over to the Rock n Roll Bride channel if you want to browse some of my favourite videos, or if not, stay right here and watch this new cute cute video, sent in today by Tim Sarquis of Infinite Design.

I had to choose this one for his first feature mainly because of the gorgeous song. It (almost) brings a tear to my eye (I don’t cry over soppy stuff so don’t be offended that I didn’t actually shed a tear – I seriously love this video!)

You’ll love this I’m sure…
