The fabulous Chelsea Nicole  has just launched her new Fusion Video venture, offering videography to her lucky couples. She sent me this a-a-amazing example from Kory & Trent’s engagement session in a dry lake bed, Las Vegas, NV. Doesn’t the video really bring the images to life?

November Rain – Guns n Roses Themed Wedding

Meredith & Eric’s wedding was based around their all time favourite band – Gun n Roses baby! Meredith wore a dress designed by the same designer behind the wedding dress in the November Rain video. It is imperative they you listen to this song as you view these fabulous images (and excuse me, but did anyone else forget how awesome this song is…and don’t even get me started on the hair – I love it!)

To top it all off, the couple actually got their wedding for free…yes free! Check out the full story from the News 9 news report and the full list of vendors who donated their services for nothing on photographer Brandi’s blog.

I think I need to move to New York. All the cool kids are moving there – including the photographer behind this fabulous engagement session, Lindsey McKinley. The tattoos (of course) the radical yellow bow/net thingy, the long haired groom to be and the Coney Island setting convince me at NYC is definitely optimisation of cool.

Bowling Alley Rockabilly Bridal Shoot

This exceptional Rock n Roll style fashion shoot photographed by Jessica Monnich at Highball in Austin Texas hit me right between the eyes. I’ve fallen in love with the vintage 1950s rockabilly stylings, the gorgeous fashion, the stunning models, the bowling alley setting…well basically how damn cool the whole thing is! I’m so excited to share this shoot and all the people involved with you..you’re gonna love it!
Be sure to also check out Wild Orchid Studios‘ amazing video to accompany this set after the ‘jump’

“We went with a 50’s theme. The location was very hip swanky 50’s feeling bowling alley on South Lamar in a bowling alley here in Austin Texas called Highball. In keeping with the vintage theme we did a place setting in the color scheme of the shoot using fiestaware which was popular during that time period. We thought Wizard of Oz Pez dispensers would be fun as that was a popular movie during that time. We also had mock cakes made up for the shoot that had a very rockabilly feel to them as well. The “bride” carried a lotus flower surrounded by sweet peas and the “bridesmaids” carried a combination of flowers including pink sweet peas and poppies.”

Crazy, Mismatched & Colourful

Remember this stunning film noir style shoot that I featured back in May? Well the couple Sami & Katherine are now getting married and who better to shoot their engagements at the amazingly bright Hirshhorn Museum (and upcoming wedding of course) than there friend Emily Porter?

“Sami’s socks are always crazy and mismatched and he shares my love of short doses of things – TV shows instead of movies, short stories instead of novels. He loves jazz. And probably once every few months he’ll message me asking for my photoshop “expertise” in making some crazy graphic for a tshirt. Once it was Sarah Palin’s face superimposed on a daisy. Most recently he asked me to photoshop a cape onto a picture of Ronald Reagan on a horse.”

“Their apartment is full of bookcases. Some of them are filled entirely with books on learning different languages because Katherine’s brain must always be taking in new information. She studies for fun. Katherine speaks with a thick New York accent and every time I visit her I get treated to the most wonderful of facial masks.”
