Amy & Lance are just awesome. Can you believe Amy actually made her hairpiece and shoes…and guess what? She runs her own Etsy store so you could even get something similar yourself. I am also a little bit obsessed with the red velvet sofa and the bright red apple…good enough to eat…literally!
Oh the prettiness! Sean Flanigan is one of those photographers who I look at his work and think he’s pretty unattainable for little Rock n Roll Bride. You know, one of those cool guys who always gets featured on the biggest and best wedding blogs. But low and behold, this morning I received an email from him asking if I wanted to be the one to feature his newest day after session - taken in Florence, Italy! I think my exact words were ‘Errrm hell to the yes!’
Cool I know.
Remember this aaamazing wedding at Shoreditch House in London? Well my lovely friend Liz (like, real life friend not just online - we’ve been out for cocktails and everything!) just sent me this wedding at the same venue that she shot with Nadia Swindell this weekend. You might recognise the bowling! How fab is that – I wish I’d found a wedding venue complete with bowling lanes.
I have been looking forward to seeing Hannah & Alex’s wedding ever since I saw their school yard engagements and the bridal shoot to be used for their stag/hen/bachelor/ette parties invites. I first spoke to Hannah about 6 months ago when she forwarded me some of the work of her sister and photographer, Kelty and I have been nuts about it every since. I have been lucky enough to become good online friends with Kelty so I was over the moon when she sent me a sneak peek of the wedding photographs after the day.
Evan & Angela’s wedding was at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, BC. They had an intimate event with just 20 or 30 guests within their own bridal penthouse suite with an antique/bird theme. They set up a typewriter to be used a vintage style guest book, birdcages around the room and old-time candy for goodie-bag favours. They are both photographers as well so there were antique cameras scattered about as well as lots of shots taken with Evan’s old Polaroid Land Camera. Angela’s veil was handmade by an artist in Portland, OR and her dress was designed by local Seattle designer Chrissy Wai-Ching. It’s a pretty damn amazing dress huh?
What you’ll probably first notice about this set (apart from the Bride’s wicked tattoo and the wedding’s cute daisy theme) is that the photography is a little different. Photographer Katie Malone uses a variety of techniques to make her work stand out from the crowd.
First we have the Holga images, an inexpensive ’toy’ camera that produces distorted and low-fidelity images. The effect is dramatic light leaks (the red intrusions) blurs and vignetting (the soft dark edged images). She accompanies this with the use of infra-red (in black and white and with complete colour washes) and TTV (Through the Viewfinder) images. The latter looks a little like a Polaroid and produce a vintage looking, square image with a dark black border.
These techniques aren’t for everyone, but I’m sure any Rock n Roll Bride can appreciate the originality and quirkiness of the result.
Thanks to Katie for sharing…
