Punk Rock Edge

This fun and laid back, spring wedding was just sent over to me by Australian photographer Stephen Henry. I’ve featured one of his weddings before and I may be seeing a pattern of awesomeness emerging! Sophie & Joe in particular are Rock n Roll, super stylish and of course look like they’re having an utter blast with their friends and family. The wedding took place at Hillstone St Lucia, Brisbane. Sophie looks stunning in her floaty, grecian dress which she had made by a local dressmaker and based on a dress she saw in a British bridal magazine (I wish I knew which one!) The bridesmaids also had individual dresses made by the same dressmaker to suit each of them perfectly.

“We wanted something classic and romantic but also something that was young modern.” The couple told me. “Old Hollywood glamour/ vintage tea- party was the theme we had in mind and Jodie from Wedding & Co helped make that happen. As it was also the first Saturday of Spring we wanted fresh English flowers to soften up the room and set the mood.”

Serious Fashion & Style Inspiration

What’s not to love about this shoot? Alex & Kaori’s downtown LA engagement session was the perfect expression of who they are as a couple – lovers of LA and fashion (they are both designers.) I will never stop loving the Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon shoes (I have them in yellow & black) and Alex’s fabulous red & white checked shirt and black bow tie combo. In fact this pair have got to be some serious fashion inspiration to at least a few of you!

An 80’s Inspired Squash, Après Ski, Vogue & Nylon Magazine Engagement Shoot!

Not looking for the traditional engagement session, Melissa & Colin went to Rhys Albrecht for an original concept…and he came up a treat! “I pitched 2 ideas to them.” Rhys explained “First, an 80’s inspired squash court shoot with knee socks, headbands and short shorts. Second, and this is a direct quote from my initial pitch to them, “a modern twist on the classic après-ski look. I’m picturing ski boots, tights, long johns, touqes, skis, parkas, etc. With bold colors. Like, if you could imagine Vogue merged with Nylon Magazine to do a “How to Glam Up Your Après-Ski” issue.”  And third, a more subdued winter look with slightly absurd accessories…like giant faux-fur hats”

Sneaky Sunshine

Heather & Neil’s sunny, yellow and turquoise themed wedding was actually not as sunny as it appears! While the wedding party got ready it poured with rain, yet luckily for all, when it came to the portraits (which I heart) the sun shone. Great photographs like this will make any wedding day look happy, relaxed and sun-filled…even if it’s pouring with rain!
