You Rock My World

Alex & Lisa met 13 years and discovered a mutual love of music, books & film “We met nearly 13 years ago and the one thing that brought us together was music. He was wearing a t shirt of my favourite band and I fell for him” Lisa told me. “When we started dating we would wander around London checking out music shops, flicking through CD and vinyl to add to our collections and then head to a local cinema to catch a film. We probably spent more time in the records shops in Soho and a cinema than anywhere else.  Many of those films we saw are now our favourite films and we probably know them inside out. I read books like there is no tomorrow and Alex is slowly coming round to that after having spent a lifetime reading comics and graphic novels. I bake cakes every weekend and while I enjoy making them, Alex enjoys eating them so when we are out I always take him to a cake shop so we can have a treat. I am also the official photographer in our relationship and I have the cameras and stacks of photo’s to prove it.  Alex helped me buy my first SLR and he sat in front of the camera on many occasion to help me with college projects”

After reading this do you see anything more perfect for these two than the engagement session below? I love it!

Night of the Living Wed

This ghoulish, retro horror themed wedding may not be everybody’s cup of tea but I can’t help but be a little over-excited about it. So. Much. Originality! Photographer Al, who has just been shortlisted for ‘Tattoo Photographer of the Year’ was keen to tell me all about Ash and Michelle Ghoulmore’s (oh yes!) friday the 13th wedding.

The couple run retro rebels store and the horror-themed clothing company Kreepsville 666 so their wedding was always going to be a spooky special. ‘Ghoulmore’ actually is Ash’s surname and they pretty much live Halloween everyday, so it was fitting to pick a horror / b-movie inspired Wedding theme (be sure to check out their awesome invite at the end of the gallery too!)

“This meant I had to light the formals in a slightly different way to ensure I got that punchy highly saturated contrasty feel that fits with the mood” photographer Al told me. “This was the first time I’ve seen a smoke machine used during the ceremony! The archway was decorated with skulls and light like a stage. As you can see form the photos the cake was a skull and all the attendees got to take home a set of cast-silver effect fangs to say ‘fangs for coming’ [groan]. Zombina and the Skeletones provided the live music for the reception, again fitting the horror-rockabilly theme.”

Michelle looked every bit the rock princess in her two dresses, firstly a custom made creation from Limb Clothing, and for the reception/evening a gorgeous Vivien of Holloway gown.

Steampunks!

A little bit fashiony, a little bit boudoir – this Steampunk themed photo shoot sent me weak at the knees! Inspired by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, New Orleans and Dita Von Teese, photographer Kamila couldn’t wait to put together a shoot like this.

Californian Snow

I hope we’re all not too sick and tired of the snow yet as I have this beautiful bridal shoot to share with you. Scarlett headed Dawn and photographer Heather found themselves the victims of a happy coincidence when snow fell (in California!) on the day of their bridal shoot.

You can see more of this gorgeous bride on her wedding day here

Goth Gal in the Snow

I trust you had a good Christmas and Santa was nice to you? Down my chimney fell a swanky new 18.5″ wide screen monitor (droooool) a Fuji Instax, a PINK Vivienne Westwood bracelet and an ‘eco cup’. These are my favouritest presents. Santa obviously knows me very well – that I am a total blogging and photography geek, that Vivienne Westwood makes me happy and that I drink way too much coffee! I am muchly looking forward to playing with all my new toys and will certainly be scanning in some of my Instax shots soon. Was Santa just as good to you?

Anyway, it’s nice to have you back, it’s been lonely without you dear reader. Although I am going to keep blogging between now and new year, the posts maybe a bit sparcer than usual. I’ll still be here, plugging along though, so please don’t hesitate to still get in touch if you need too.

The winter submissions have poured in over the festive period so I’m going to get right back into it with this snowy graveyard shoot from Jeffrey Chan Tin. Bridal shoots in graveyards always seem to provoke some kind of controversy (who knows!?) but how can anybody argue that these images aren’t ridiculously stunning? I really do love the snow…
