What’s not to love about this shoot? Alex & Kaori’s downtown LA engagement session was the perfect expression of who they are as a couple – lovers of LA and fashion (they are both designers.) I will never stop loving the Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon shoes (I have them in yellow & black) and Alex’s fabulous red & white checked shirt and black bow tie combo. In fact this pair have got to be some serious fashion inspiration to at least a few of you!
Not looking for the traditional engagement session, Melissa & Colin went to Rhys Albrecht for an original concept…and he came up a treat! “I pitched 2 ideas to them.” Rhys explained “First, an 80’s inspired squash court shoot with knee socks, headbands and short shorts. Second, and this is a direct quote from my initial pitch to them, “a modern twist on the classic après-ski look. I’m picturing ski boots, tights, long johns, touqes, skis, parkas, etc. With bold colors. Like, if you could imagine Vogue merged with Nylon Magazine to do a “How to Glam Up Your Après-Ski” issue.” And third, a more subdued winter look with slightly absurd accessories…like giant faux-fur hats”
Heather & Neil’s sunny, yellow and turquoise themed wedding was actually not as sunny as it appears! While the wedding party got ready it poured with rain, yet luckily for all, when it came to the portraits (which I heart) the sun shone. Great photographs like this will make any wedding day look happy, relaxed and sun-filled…even if it’s pouring with rain!
What happens when a South African photographers and dress designer get together to set up an Rock n Roll bridal shoot…? This, that’s what! Blue and grey are such a great colours on brides – a bit more quirky than white, a bit more unique than red. If you’re a blue or grey dress bride be sure to send me your wedding pictures! Yum…
Sarah & Kevin’s darling backyard wedding took place in a friend’s back garden in Arlington, Texas. The vintage-inspired theme with robin egg blue touches made for the perfect, personal picnic wedding. The day was styled by Revolution Garden and several of the wedding accessories (including the invitation, all hair accessories, the sign-in painting, and the decorated hat box) were hand-made by them as well. The whimsical bouquets made of all off-white and vanilla flowers and the boutonnieres were created by The T Shop. The bridesmaids wore dresses from Anthropologie and the bride’s dress was put together with thrift store shopping including Buffalo Exchange.
