Oh. My. God. can someone please tell me what’s going on over here?! A few weeks ago I got an email from Harriet Mellor, a journalist for the Daily Express, one of the most widely read newspapers in the UK. She was writing an article about 5-9ers, people like me who still work full time and run their own business in their spare time. She wanted to interview me to be included in this article and of course I was over the moon to oblige.
If you’re in the UK, I hope you were able to go pick up your copy today but for all the rest of you, here’s the text around my ‘bit’…and that huge photo of my pink head!
Using out-of-hours as a launch pad
It’s only Rock n Roll: Kat Williams For bride-to-be, Kat Williams, what started as an entertaining blog crossed over into an international web business with advertising and sponsorship.
The very gorgeous engagement session of the equally gorgeous Abby & Erik was just sent over by their photographer friend Mary Wyar. She had the pleasure of hanging out the back of her car to get the ‘riding the scooter’ shots as well as the much less strenuous task of shooting the pierced and tattooed couple having a Rock n Roll picnic (complete with pink flamingos of course) and hanging out with their dog, Sweetpea.
Hands up if you love Amelia Lyon! Chances are that if you’re not waving your arms madly in the air right now it’s because you haven’t heard of the lady… shame on you, oh boy is that about to change.
The Blog Land favourite and all round fabulous Amelia ran another round of her her famous ‘Lyon Shop’ photography workshops on March 6th in Vegas any results turned out a treat. I was lucky enough to secure these exclusive pictures to share with you today. Not only are the models gorgeous (photographer’s Mark & Candice Brooke), funky and fabulous but the locations are to die for. I am seriously swooning over that ‘pool at the top of a skyscraper’ shot. Just awesome.
When I received the initial email from Roland of S8 Films I was blown away. Not only did I instantly adore their work but I was delighted to discover they are London based (in fact right around the corner from my soon-to-be-part-time ‘day’ job!) The Super 8 format has been growing in popularity over the last few years. From it’s grainy texture to it’s raw, ‘real’ appeal, it’s easy to see why brides all over the world have fallen in love with it. In fact if we had made the decision to have a wedding film made, I know Super 8 would have been the way we’d done it.
I have been dreaming about blogging this wedding since October when photographer Caroline of the wonderful Tinywater emailed me to let me know she was off to shoot a Halloween, fancy-dress gothic themed wedding…and even before shooting the wedding, she knew I was going to love it. Well judging by the number of photographs I’m including in this post you could say she was pretty much bang on! I was lucky enough to have Rachel, the bride get in contact with me to share all the glorious details!
Inspired by the movie, Aaron and Kassee’s engagement shoot had that perfect retro, kooky and quirky feel. The pair even went to some of the iconic locations in the film including Angels Knoll park and Los Angeles Union Station.
