I really love discovering little gems like this…Erica Salas Adams is an aspiring photographer that found me through Facebook (OK so she discovered me but I like to take the credit!) and send me this gorgeous engagement session that she took of her brother and his fiance.
I am a wife, mama, artist and aspiring photographer. I love being all of the above. I remember how excited I was when I got my first disk camera when I was 9 years old. Going to Thrifty’s and eagerly awaiting the chance to tear open my envelope and see the pictures of my friends and family. I want that feeling to never end. It’s so exciting to capture life’s most fleeting moments . Share what is beautiful. Say do you see what see? I love life. I love moments. I love color and texture and sweetness of it all. It’s taken me a while to get here. My husband is the wind beneath my wings. My son True Chance is my inspiration, he is my new found courage to opening this new door. He makes me want to be the best person I can be. God has blessed me.
For more of Erica’s work check out her blog, I am particularly in love with the ‘my pretties’ series.

I have two fabulous sets of photographs by the very lovely Lisa Rigby to share with you today. I came across her site on one of my many hunts and emailed her straight away asking if I could feature some of her work. I hope you like it as much as I do!
First up, Nicoline & Ryan’s cute engagement session taken in The Boston Common Garden (which is where the couple actually got engaged.) Ryan is a musician and wrote this sweet song about his fiance too…Clicky!

Ever feel like your not ‘out there’ enough with your wedding planning? Feeling bad for being to traditional and like a fraud as a ‘rock n roll bride’ for wearing a white dress or getting married in a church (as we did by the way!)
Well stop beating yourself up and head over to my second home, the very fabulous Savvy Scoop for today’s ‘traditional meets rock n roll’ guest post.

Happy Monday people! There are a lot of very exciting things happening at Rock n Roll Bride HQ this week starting with my very first guest blogger. This week – today, Wednesday and Friday, I will be featuring some gorgeous Rock n Roll inspiration boards from the fabulous Emily from Peach & Pearl, designed especially for us.
Also, while I’m at it, a quick reminder that you have 2 days left to get me your final entries for the free wedding photography contest. We have had some absolutely aaaamazing entries so far and it is proving very difficult to choose the winners! The winners will be notified sometime this week! woohoo
OK, so on with the inspiration..take it away Emily!
I’m thrilled to be here this week! I post an inspiration board every Monday on Peach & Pearl, and when I was invited on to guest post, I thought it would be fun to try and combine Kat’s style (in her words: “pink, tattoos, monochrome, vintage, the Wizard of Oz, and brightly colored stuff”) with my more classic and sweet style. It was a fabulous challenge and I hope you’ll enjoy the results!Ngoc Minh Ngo) in the top left corner. From there, I put the bride in a bright royal blue dress and the groom in a slim-fitting white dinner jacket. The slightly-Spanish vibe comes through in the citrus centerpieces, the fruity drinks, and the bright linens – with those colors popping on your tables, what other decor do you need? Hang cut paper garlands in doorways and line outdoor walkways and ledges with tealights or punched luminarias to create inexpensive atmosphere.

I love a good hair piece..I would never leave the house without some random creation in my pink barnet – whether that be a inconspicuous little hello kitty clip, a big massive bow or my little green top hat!
So when the fabulous Lisa of Ophelia Photography send these my way, how could I say no – awesome photography + amazing hair stuff…two of my most favourite things rolled into one!
You really should check out Adorn Atelier’s fan-bloody-tastic collection of hair accessories..I am a little bit in love with it all!
