A Punk, Rockabilly, Neo-Gothic, Country & Western Engagement Sesh.

Michelle & Mike’s engagement session is a total reflection of them as a couple. They were inspired by Quentin Tarantino for the style and used their “Rockabilly, car kulture, punk culture, antiques, vintage & neo-traditional design and styling, neo-gothic, country/western, low-brow art, tattoo culture, vintage pin-up/greaser” personalities as the theme! They even brought a 1970 Mustang Grande & 1962 Chevrolet Biscayne along for the ride.

These are hella awesome right? Just you wait until you see Michelle’s awesome bridals their INCREDIBLE wedding which I’m posting later today!

Sentimental, Personal & Vintage

David & Julie-Anne’s wedding shoot was a total reflection on who they are as a couple. Everything they chose to wear had special meaning to them and was sentimental and personal. “We didn’t want the usual stresses of a modern day wedding to take away from the love and happiness of our day, so we chose to keep it simple, fun and comfortable” they explained.

Julie-Anne wore an original German 1950’s ivory capture lace and satin dress which was the heirloom of a family friend. With this she wore a vintage burgundy & black English worsted & wool tapestry coat with fur collar, ‘Papucchi’ flats and a small burgundy hat with rose detail and black netting.

The full list of everything used and worn can be seen after the ‘jump’

Nick & Hannah’s Game Playing, Fancy Dress Celebration

Nick & Hannah had a 3 day wedding at Christian retreat and conference centre Lee Abbey. The celebrations started with a day of fun activities for all their guests including archery, mountain boarding and zip wiring through the forest. Not only that, but all their guests were invited to wear fancy dress. That sure made for lots of laughs and some awesome photographs. The couple made an extra special effort, coming as Robin Hood and Maid Marion. Hannah had even worn her Grandmother’s own wedding dress in memory of her.

Blake & Megan’s Vintage, Diy, Anniversary Sesh

Blake & Megan have been married a few years but wanted to do a new photo shoot to reflect who they are as a couple right now (I’m hoping to convince Gareth to do the same thing soon – the latest photos we have of us together are our wedding photos. In these he has a shaved head (he now has long hair) and I have brown hair – we couldn’t be more different now!)

Blake & Megan and their photographer Daniel & his wife hunted in vintage shops, independent stores & consignment shops for the perfect vintage-inspired outfits and props, and everyone spent a long time on diy projects to make everything personal and perfect. On the day, they shot in Daniel’s back garden as well as a secret woods nature centre in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

A Really Dramatic Impact

As a pale chick with brightly coloured hair myself, I felt an instant affinity to Cheyenne’s photo shoot. Photographer Sarah wanted to contrast with something dark and almost gothic is style as she knew this would create a really dramatic impact. “The black lipstick was definitely my starting point for the rest of the styling. Our first outfit was the lace trimmed bodysuit with the patterned tights and long coat. We shot in the late afternoon, but it was still over 100 degrees here (LA), she was a real trooper. I thought that this would be an interesting approach to a boudoir session with a bride not into the traditional lacy panty pics. I hope I find a bride who would be down for it! ha. All of the outfits were from my vintage and thrifted collection of pieces.”
