Today is my birthday so I’m taking a rare (and I hope you’ll agree – well deserved) day off from blogging, emails, twitter… all that jazz (well I may pop by twitter – let’s not be rash with our decisions here.) I’ll be back and raring to go tomorrow – but until then, here’s a little sneaky peek of what you can expect on my return…shaaaweeeet huh?!
Oh how I love these!! I mean what’s not to love? As photographer Paulus explains “Paula is a sentimental, fashionable, crazy gothic lolita girl and Teddy is an easy going, noodle maniac, graphic master, straight to the point guy. They both came up with this amazing concept. Both of them are tattoo lovers, so they decided to shoot their photos at Rock n Roll Tattoo. They got their vows inked on their arms.”
Yeah so these guys are pretty much perfectofor Rock n Roll Bride aren’t they? And quite apart from the tattoo awesomeness, how INCREDIBLE are these portraits?!
Oh how I love the crazy, mad world that MangoRED create with their photography. Who else could come up with something so magical, hilarious, joyful and original!? Check out the styling by Geof Gonzales…I have a total compulsion to dress up like a soya drink carton or wear an outfit to match my wallpaper right now…
“What we do is dream” Geof explains “Seldom do we come across people with same predilections as ours and deem it priceless and we are very, very grateful for it. Thus inspiring us to push our imaginations to higher heights. Initial inspiration really come from our couple. Then we stir it with our own interpretations by whims of our minds and guilty pleasures. Inspiration roots from appreciation, so everything is inspiration, everything.
Nature mixed with humanity mixed with spontaneity mixed with integrity mixed with humility mixed with schizos and complex personalities comes a melting pot of creative excess and indulgent, succulent rendering.
We stretch reality. We love wallpapers to the extent that we want to envelope everything with it. Gravity is a banal thing yet tinkered on resulting to a surreal moment of suspension. An odd mix of mascots is our way to humor what we do. So, everything is a result of playing.”
Hayley & Brett’s funfair/carnival themed love shoot makes me feel all playful. Gotta love a couple who can have a blast together! Together for a little over 2 years, this pair found comfort in each other through some difficult times at the beginning of their relationship. They decided to do their pre-wedding shoot at a carnival to symbolize their fun personalities and has a celebration of their love for one another. Her dress is vintage which she found at a thrift store and their flowers were done by Mignonne Handmade.
I am the worst for patience…the actual worst! I want everything now now now. So when I picked the newest issue of Photo Pro Magazine up and saw that not only was my article on one of my favourite photographers, David McNeil featured, but that my Vintage Boudoir shoot with the fabulous Julia Boggio was adoring FOUR whole pages, I literally couldn’t wait to share the scans with you. I hope you likey!
Click on the images to make them bigger and read-able if you want to see what Julia said about me and my posing – Yes I am a big poser. It’s probably best to open in a new tab/window instead of using the lightbox view as I’ve made the scans maaahusive so you can read it easily.
I have no words…
OK so that’s a lie, I always have words. Lots of them. But this aaamazing ‘Uptown meets Downtown’ shoot which was put together by Adrienne Colosimo of Bespoke Affairs (I featured her own wedding nearly exactly a year ago!) and photographer Danny Weiss. I’m sorry but this shoot makes me want to live in New York even more…and I want to wear that Annlum Red / Anna Zhu couture wedding gown with biker boots and a leather jacket literally every day I’m there.
You will LOVE these. You can see the full vendor list after the ‘jump’
