Roadhouse Relics

You’ve got to see Kassie & James’ killer Roadhouse Relics (Texas) engagement shoot! The vintage, western, neon retro decor and 50’s rockabilly vibe proved to be the perfect location for such an awesome couple. The store, which specialises in neon signs allowed the couple an hour to come in and get some fabulous photographs.

“They have a area in the back set up with some of their old signs and other marquees that they have bought from businesses that went out of business” photographer Jessica told me. “The couple are caterers her in town and they are AWESOME! www.cateringwithatwist.comis their site. They definitely have that cool rockabilly tattooed awesomeness on a day to day basis so this shoot was totally an extension of their personality. They were the ones that wanted to park his sweet ride in the middle of Congress Ave. Which is one of the busiest tourist streets in Austin so I was a little nervous that someone would hit their car. But it came out AMAZING! Also James loves big trees so we found some awesome trees with tons of knots in them. It was soooo hot that day that we stuck to a few places but I really think it turned out to be awesome!”

Rag ‘n Bone – Rock n Roll Bride Inspired Photo Shoots from South Africa

Inspired by the Rock n Roll shoots & weddings he saw on Rock n Roll Bride, South African photographer Adrian Shields wanted to emulate the style and passion he saw coming from the US and the UK.

Rag ‘n Bone was born.

“After many blog searches, and a little bit of hunger for inspiration I stumbled across what you all know as Rock n Roll Bride” Adrian explains. “Finally, a glimmer of individualism. For 12 years I had shot weddings every weekend hoping to find a bride that would go the extra mile and not be happy with mediocrity and finally I found where this was… over in the UK and America. I just had to bring this to Durban, SA before anyone else would.”
