Emotional & Theatrical

Classy, elegant, retro. These are the words that came to me as soon as I saw Rebecca & Justin’s 1950s inspired engagement session. The shoot took place at The Ritz Ybor in downtown Tampa, a venue which perfectly reflected photographer Alicia’s vision for the session. Rebecca’s polka dot dress was from PinUp Girl Clothing and Justin looked the part in his trilby hat (which retails at $75 but he picked up for $6!) and waistcoat combo.

Second Time Lucky

DSC_0464b

Both beautiful and fun, this wedding was zipped over to me by newbie photographer Emma Case. I am struggling to believe this is only the second wedding she has ever shot! The Southampton based photographer told me all about Ruth & Dan’s wedding:

Ruth and Dan were married on the 3rd October 2009 at Hartington Hall Youth Hostel in Derbyshire.  They hired the whole hostel for the weekend and guests shared traditional style youth hostel rooms with single beds, bunk beds and shared showers!

Rock n Roll Perfect

It doesn’t get more Rock n Roll perfect than this! Sommer & Dan’s wedding took place in an old mill is Somerset, New Jersey which is owned by Dan’s parents. The bride wore a 1950s prom dress from Ebay and snakeskin Kate Spade shoes. The groom rocked it in a custom suit with spiderweb lining and the bridesmaids looked the part in leopard print shoes. To top off the day, Bruce, the family pet rooster, served as ring bearer and apparently he did a great job!

Beautiful You

I have to be honest, when I received an email from Evelyn Eslava asking if I wanted to share a photo shoot featuring vintage dresses and horses I wasn’t immediately blown away…I’m not the outdoors type should we say! But when she sent the images through yesterday, boy was I proven wrong? I am in love!

Slurpee Bride

Is it just me or doe s Rachel look a lot like the gorgeous Anna Friel?! Off topic slightly but I just had to thrown that out there. The idea for this shoot came from the bride herself. She had always been a huge fan of Tori Amos and so told photographer Duston Todd that around the time that her idol got married, and in reference to her song ‘Jackie’s Strength’, she was quoted to have said

“There’s one side of me that could very easily have ended up at the 7-Eleven sitting outside drinking a Slurpee in my wedding dress and just missing the whole thing. And then there’s the other one that did make it to the church. So, this song is about the one that drank the Slurpee. She’s still out there somewhere.”
