A Predictable Post?

So, you know about Bridal Soup now yeah?  Well the one of the guys behind it, Steve Gerrard is actually a fabulous photographer based in Birmingham, UK.  Being as I was to be a regular contributor to his new venture I figured I should check out his work as well, and boy am I glad I did..look at this amazin’ NY wedding.

When I emailed Steve to let him know I was going to feature one of his weddings he actually replied saying “Let me guess – the New York wedding!” am I that predicable!!?  Well for a well like this I am happy to be predictable!

I love flippin’ loads about this wedding – the dress, the glasses, the Groom Style (+ the long hair – I am all about men with long hair after Gareth grew his!) and the locations of the portraits to name but a few.

Erica Berger Rocks It!

Here we go then people, some fabulous new images from the amazing Erica Berger.  She is one of my most favourite new photographic finds, and like me, she has a rather large accessory obsession!

Film Vs Digital

I am going to give you a terrible example of how to wedding plan right now.  When we were choosing our photographers, we didn’t do what all the magazines tell you to and meet with as many photographers as possible to decide who suits us best.  I found English Rose Photography, we met them and we booked them… We knew as soon as we saw their gorgeous photographs that they were who we wanted, and as soon as we met them we knew they were perfect for our wedding.

The reason I’m telling you this is because like English Rose, Linda Chaja uses film in her camera instead of a memory card.  Now, the fact that John & Jill of English Rose used film wasn’t the thing that sold them to us – it was their style, their personalities and their love of weddings that did it…however looking back I think its really nice to have ‘real’ photographs, not just a digital image on a screen, to remember our wedding.  Sure, I know you can print off digital images just as you can with film..but think of it like this – why would anyone choose to use a Polaroid camera?  Exactly, there’s no logical reason..it’s simply because Polaroid’s rock.

But aaaaanyway, I digress…what I actually wanted to say (and could have said in literally one sentence) was that Linda Chaja uses film…and I like it.
