Blog Love – David McNeil Photography

n783665622_2195411_4027

Regular readers will know I’m all about the love of my photographer friend David who did my Boudoir shoot, our Engagement photos and my post-wedding Bridal shoot. We he’s given me some blog love today so thought I’d repay the favour – go check out his website, believe me it’s amazing!

Who are the readers who have enquired or booked him by finding him via Rock ‘n Roll Bride? I’d love to know – don’t be shy.

From his blog:

Busy Day

Gosh, what a busy day it has been! I spent all day finally getting to grips with my workflow shift over from my PC / Lightroom to MacBook Pro / Aperture, and think I have finally found a way that lets me create some great looking albums every time. It’s amazing how much the little quirks of each system can throw you! I’ll be designing Julie and Dan’s album tomorrow so I’ll let you know how I get on. I’ve also had three further enquiries today for weddings in 2009 which is great, so there’s more names to add to my wee spreadsheet (I have a spreadsheet for everything in my life!).
I think I’m quite a lucky photographer as all the couples I meet are all great fun and are having weddings I’m really looking forward to shooting. With that in mind I thought I’d let everybody know that in January 2009 my website will be revamped with the re-launch of my portrait site and a new pricing structure for my wedding packages.
To secure the 2008 package prices all you have to do is send an email enquiry before 31st December. Exciting additions to the new packages include a day-after shoot, and free-download guest galleries. If you have already booked me then Christmas is a great time to start thinking about your pre-wedding shoot.
I’ll be posting a blog next week to help you start thinking about what style and location is right for you. If you have any ideas I’m always eager to hear them at photography@davidmmcneil.com
Finally a big thank-you to Kat, whose blog and posts have thrown a few enquiries my way! Here she is with a lovely little hat:

Wanna see a few more of my photos he took? Go on then – what a lucky girl I am…
Fabulous yes?!

Katy and Drew’s Personal Touches

Katy and Drew got married on the 16th of August this year in a Philidephia art gallery. They we also married in a local park by one of their friends.

Katy used Etsy to source many items at cost effective prices including these gorgous bridesmaid headpieces. (sorry I don’t know the actual seller boo)

Green With Envy

This wedding has been featured elsewhere but I couldn’t not post – it’s too gorgeous!
I am in love with the colours they chose – and I have a bit of an obsession with that green mac eyeliner! (I have it plus 3 other colours!)

And to top it all off…gorgeous Bridesmaids and dresses – regular readers will know I’m all about the mis-matching Bridesmaid dresses!

What a stunning couple (and what impecable taste!)

Great Gatsby Rock ‘n Rollers

Yey! Noa from Feather Love Weddings has sent me her most Rock and Rolly wedding for me to feature, and it’s a beauty!

This is the wedding of Julia and Dusty – regulars on the music scene in San Diego…so the perfect candidates for a Rock ‘n Roll Wedding right?

Lady Dottie and the Diamonds (a very popular blues rock band in San Diego) played, the Groom is a musician and about half the guests were in some sort of band…perfecto!

The tables were labeled by albums – some of the Bride & Groom’s classic favorites like Patti Smith, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton (questionable!) Cream etc. The photographer, Noa, also did some very “great gatsby” vintagey type photos, and also did a few with her Holga Camera too (I just love the style of these don’t you!?)

Here we go with the porn then..enjoy…

Polaroid It

Don’t you just love the retro-but-awesome medium of Polaroid? They just make me want to get all creative and snappy!

I also flippin’ love the felt flowers by Princess Lasertron.  I have seen these flowers in a number of Rock ‘n Roll Weddings recently… maybe they are the new fake moustaches?
