Alysson & David’s wedding was a fusion of traditional, rock n roll and crazy offbeat awesome hair! Even though they were married in a church (that was a converted school by David’s father who is a pastor) this couple certainly dared to walk off that beaten aisle! As photographer, Daniel Krieger said to me…
The couple tore up the dance floor once some loud punk music came on the stereo.. the atmosphere of the wedding was just a chill, fun time.. people with different coloured hair and regular looking aunts all on the dance floor together.
Alysson’s taffeta-free Amsale dress was accoumpanied it with some shoes by Chinese Laundry, bought from DSW.
The rock star credentials don’t stop there though. Not only did The Ramones play at their reception (!) but they had a pair of guests, Tish and Snooky, that not only used to be in Blondie (ARRGH!) but are the founders of Manic Panic (kick ass hair colour dye.) I think right now I owe those two a huge thank you for creating such amazing rainbow hair dye!
Thanks to Daniel for sending this off the wall, offbeat, rock star wedding to me!

Bess & Matt…ahh what can I really say what would do justice to the images I see before me?
The couple wed at Ridley Creek State Park with an amazing outdoorsy, rustic style fest. Of course Bess’ tattoos and Matt’s ‘tache are what did it for me. Not to mention the dress by Megin Sherry, the check shirt (wow this Groom has some serious style) the casual garden flowers provided by Amanda Staples, the peacock earrings, the trilby hat and the cupcakes…oh yes Bess & Matt are just too stylish for me.
Thanks to Amanda & Carina for sending me this glorious wedding

This Australian trash the dress session was taken without the use of any flash, they just had the beautiful natural light to illuminate the scene. Wedding planner and model Brenda Swann totally rocked the gorgeousness…and yes I am in love with her Boring Sidney headband, aren’t you?
Thanks to Melissa for sending me these…

Erm….woaaaah… I have lost all words right now. Those fake blue eyelashes really make this shoot for me – 80’s-tastic baby! You have got to love these right?
The shoot can be described as my attempt to take a whimsical, expect the unexpected, approach to what we normally think of when we think of a typical bride, what she should be wearing and what she should look like, etc. For example we had this gown that looks like it was straight from the 80’s contrasted with perfectly styled up hair. The bride is fully made-up but in crazy colours that you would usually only see on a cabaret dancer. Even the backgrounds we chose, sitting on a haystack, waiting alone on a bench….imagery that causes the viewer to double-take and basically cause a reaction whether it be a laugh, confusion, wonder – that’s what we were aiming for!

My love for this wedding is three-fold. It’s in the UK, Amalia’s Temperley London dress is so damn gorgeous and unique and Simon proposed with a tomato skin (!) which he then had gold plated for Amalia to wear around her wrist.
