Red Shoes & Snakeskin Boots

I have featured the work of Marina from Red Heart Photography a number of times recently, every time she sends me something I am stopped in my tracks!

Christina & Justin had a personal ceremony on 09.09.09 in Kona (it was just the two of them – you can’t get more intimate that that!) and then followed it up with an amazing photo session with the lovely Marina.

Tequila In Hawaii

Husband and wife team James & Bev just sent me these stunning Kikaua Point Beach wedding from May this year. I actually spotted some of these images on one of my many hunts for damn cool weddings and in fact begged them to send me the images of Amanda & Rob’s big day. Me? play it cool?…certainly not!

The couple had a Don Julio Tequila toast right after they said ‘I do’ (now I don’t really know what this is, but I can only imagine it involved Tequila shots after the vows!) and Amanda wore are beautiful traditional Hawaiian dress called a mu’umu’u as her wedding gown and quite frankly looked stunning.

A huge thanks to Bev & James for sending me these and letting me share this stunning wedding with you all!

ps yes there are a lot of images in the post. I couldn’t narrow them down. Forgive me?

A Laid Back, Retro Vibe

Kelty of Steep Street is slowly becoming one of my new favourite photographers. With every photo shoot I fall just a little bit more in love with her laid back, retro vibe. Nadia & Bram’s engagements are of course no exception. I have so much love…

Kelty…love you girl!

The Last Days Of Summer

As much as we hate to admit it, summer is coming to an end. When we hit September and the kids go back to school that’s pretty much it right? Hell I had to write an article for a magazine (hehe shameless self promotion to follow soon!) about winter weddings last week for crying out loud!

However with the nights drawing in, we can’t deny that the light gets that little bit more beautiful and the evenings become that little bit more comfortable – so comfortable in fact that Rachel & Nate felt the need for a pillow fight! You gotta love these…

Thanks to the goooorgeous Duston for sharing these with us.

Anniversary Love

As photographers, Emmy & Aaron are more comfortable being behind the camera then in front, but for their one year anniversary (this week!) they decided they deserved some gorgeous photographs of their own!

Emmy told me the whole story:
When we took a little anniversary trip to a cabin on Cowichan Lake (Vancouver Island BC Canada) I pulled my dress, by Demetrios, out of the closet and took it with us.  We had a great little cabin on the beach and there were some other perfectly decayed old buildings on the property including this great lime green shed.  The owner expressed some concern that we were making photos in front of “the biggest eyesore on the property”.  I think that old shed is perfect!.  We met over a conversation about our shared love of photography.  Pretty soon we also loved each other and now we love making photographs together.  We can’t believe how lucky we are that we found each other and that we both have the same passion.  I don’t let him shoot me that often – I like being behind the camera as much as he does – but putting that dress on tends to let you become somebody else for a while.  Doesn’t hurt that its my hot hubby behind the camera!  Everyone should do this on their anniversary – let those dresses out of the closet girls you look fabulous in them and they want to be seen!  You don’t have to be a photographer just head out and have some fun!  I LOVE my dress and it was soooo much fun wearing it again!!

Sunset Love Story

I really need to be lying down with some honey and lemon and watching trash on tv as I’m sick…grr I don’t do well when I get ill – boredom is not my Forté. I just had to drop by and share a few little images from this Russian engagement session entitled ‘Sunset Love Story.’  Totally beautiful huh? It’s hard to choose, but I think the ‘red heart lollypop’ one has got to be my favourite. Too gorgeous!

The photographer, Katja Mukhina, will actually be touring the states in October/November of this year and would love to meet and photograph some rock n roll couples. Drop her an email if you’re game!

Until tomorrow, when I hope to be feeling less vile and able to share all the amazing weddings I’ve been sent over the weekend (I swear…they are all amazing!)
