Woohoo! It’s my favourite time of the month again…Photo Pro time! I’m still not over the fact that I get to be in a real life magazine. Excitement overload. This month I got to write about one of my favourite types of photography and one of the first photographers I became blogging friends with – Tara Kneiser and the joy that is Holga!
What I love the most about blogging is making friends and getting to know people all over the world. The bride, Sarah actually emailed me a few months ago to ask my advice on something and so I have been looking forward to seeing their wedding and her bridal shoot since then…and I now have a new friend who’s moving to London next year – woo!
Dustin and I are both in the creative field, so we definitely wanted to put our talents (and our friend’s talents) to good use. We had friends create the save the date poster, read poems for the ceremony, play guitar and sing during the ceremony, create the invitations/placecards/programs, you name it!
I think you’re gonna absolutely love these! Hayley’s trash the dress/bridal shoot had two ideas behind it – a goth bride and the movie Carrie! Scary and wonderful aren’t they?
I can’t actually decide which idea I prefer as both of them certainly have a ‘True Blood’ feel to them and I am obsessed with that show! I suddenly have a very strong inclination to go watch a very scary film…maybe about sexy vampires.
The dark feel of this trash the dress shoot is pretty damn fabulous huh? I am loving Michelle’s black fishnets, patent shoes and feathers in her hair – they certainly make for a grungy edge to the shoot. Michelle even made a dead flower bouquet to really empathise the gothic-esque feel.

Why hello December, you snuck up on us real fast didn’t you?! I’m not quite ready to get proper festive just yet, but here’s my usual conglomerate of candy sweetness to keep you going until I am.
♥ How had I let Cliché magazine pass me by?! Plus my friend Lara Jade (well online friend… I like to fantasise that we are actually buddies) is thrice featured! So much swoon
♥ I may not be ready for Crimbo yet but I’m sure some of you would like help with your shopping. This is the definitive playgirl shopping list
♥ DIY engagement shoot. I love.
♥ Valentino. Yes please.
♥ A simple yet and wonderful seaside wedding
♥ Girlie, ruffled, gorgeous
♥ The Groom style to beat all groom style. Three words - Velvet. Teal. Jacket.
♥ Take your blog to a whole new level
♥ I want to eat this
♥ Freakin’ kick ass wedding polaroids (via a desert fete)
♥ What cool and awesome reception details!
♥ Beautiful 1920’s inspired wedding shoot
♥ 17 crazily gorgeous and completely unique business card ideas (via Princess Lasertron)
♥ OMG this dress! I can’t wait to see more of this wedding…
♥ Cinematic & awe-inspiring shoot
♥ Hee hee! Tea cup with little legs!
♥ UK photographers, Tino & Pip are desperate for an awesome Rock n Roll couple’s wedding to shoot. Therefore they are offering half price coverage to a deserving and rockin’ couple!
♥ This is not a new article, but a friend of mine sent this to me to cheer me up. Feeling jealous of other people’s success and inadequate with what I’m doing with Rock n Roll Bride is part of the job of trying to make a success of your own business I guess! Don’t be different, be unique! (Thanks Andri – mwah)
♥ If you are still on the hunt for quirky, unique & adorable bridesmaid dresses then look no further than Quail Bridal. I am currently having a love affair with the teal ‘toasting’ dress
♥ I love these authentic vintage touches
♥ I just had to share this image shot by The Nichols from Sarah & Jaime’s wedding. After pink, this shade of green is my favourite colour ever. For the full report head over to Green Wedding Shoes later today.
♥ Shhh! An incognito New York Photographer is running a photo shoot contest. Incognito because they are keeping their identity a secret so not so influence the entries they receive. They say,
In an effort to only attract the most creative, I have decided to remain anonymous. I do not want contestants going to my website for inspiration on what they think I may be looking for. I want them to be creative and original. I realize that this is unorthodox, but I truly believe this will enable me to find the type of contestants I seek.
I would love it if a Rock n Roll couple won this. Come on you can do it!
♥ Living TV are still on the look out for a Rock n Roll couple to take part in the next series of Four Weddings. If you’re in the UK and getting hitched between now and March then get in touch! For anyone who hasn’t seen the show before, here’s the info from the production team:
We are casting for the second series of “Four weddings” which see’s 4 brides attending each others’ weddings as guests and they will judge & score the day as a whole based on four categories, The Dress, The Food, The Venue and The Overall Experience. The scores are not disclosed amongst the other brides until after all the weddings when it will be revealed whose wedding has been judged the best! The bride with the highest score at the end of the show will win a Luxury dream honeymoon.
We would really love a real variety of weddings celebrating different cultures and personal interests.We would love to include a gothic wedding or burlesque wedding, however we’re open to all sorts of weddings.This wedding would need to be taking place in December, January or February.
♥ I love posting videos to make you happieee
You may have seen this – it’s all over the internet, but my husband showed it to me on Tuesday and I melted (and laughed!)
Super 8 is super awesome huh?
Time Lapse is cool
You will love or hate this. I can’t help but love it (Thanks Dana!)

My friend Kelty has done it again. Is it possible for one photographer (and her sister, Hannah the beautiful model) to be so crazily yummy-licious?!
