Rebecca & Michael wanted a French/Hollywood vintage glam style shoot to signify their engagement. They loved the idea of having a whimsical, vintage feel and Rebecca’s inspiration was that she wanted a shoot that really meant a lot to them as a couple. The fascinator she wore belonged to her grandma when she was young for example.
“We were able to create some old Hollywood romance in a local cafe” Australian photographer Tenielle told me. “It looksed as if it belonged in the French countryside. The Cafe we shot at was called ‘Cafe Bouquiniste’, and the owner Meredith has a love for Paris, Books and all things French as you can tell.”
The majority of the weddings and photo shoots I feature are sent to be by photographers or recently married couples, however occasionally I’ll come across a session so damn cool that I have to email the photographer right away and demand to feature it! This was one of those sessions.
I’d followed William Massey‘s work through a group on flickr for a while now yet it was only now that I really stood up and took notice. Philip & Anela were one of those couples that I instantly knew would suit Rock n Roll Bride to a tee – punky, retro, vintage, quirky, cool…they suited all these words that I overuse everyday on my blog.
The simple pleasure of Frances & Brant’s Olympia, WA engagement session at home makes me happieee. Perfectly personal, intimate and natural. What’s not to love?
