These. Are. Awesome. Ballet is cool again!
I was sent a collection of bridal fashion shoots from Italian photographer Joanne Dunn the other day and I have to say I fell in love immediately. She describes her work as “personal fusion photography—the punk of wedding photography”, and boy can I see why. These chicks are certainly Rock n Roll baby!
The Italians are notoriously painfully stylish and ahead of the game and these shots definitely prove that to me – the black and white palate, the crimped hair, the tiered dress – all scream high fashion bridal style for 2010.
Edit: the stunning dresses were made by local (Italian) dressmaker Giovanna Albano who can be contacted on 0039 081961898 or 0039 335 8004824
With the day of hearts, flowers and lurrrve fast approaching, I have been inundated with Valentine’s themed submissions, however this retro/pin up shoot from Jen Will may well be one of my utter favourites.
The shoot took place in her own kitchen which was the perfect setting for the baking theme. “This is part of the reason I love my apartment.” Jen tells us “It is the coolest apartment ever, and my love for it is part of the reason I have yet to join the adult world of home ownership. It has a bathroom that would probably rent out as a large bedroom in New York City and a classic stove that came straight from the original Be Witched TV show. No matter where I live in the future, I will always love this place. I am so glad I got to document it in such a special way!”
Sometimes the non-bridal stuff I get sent it so freakin’ awesome that it would be crime against humanity (and in this case fashion) not to share it. Karolina Skorek is a painter and photographer from Poland who’s just opened a photography studio here in the UK. This amazing shoot was done with her friend and fashion designer Ewelina Sliwa. Aren’t her designs just wonderful? I love the grungy, decaying feel to this attic shots. Fabulousa!
This beautiful Valentine’s day/love letter themed shoot was sent to me by Alice Hu and I’m afriad I couldn’t wait until February 14th to share it with you. The shoot was put together for Fantasy Floral Designs. Amanda Heer is the original creator of the vintage brooch bouquet and for this shoot she created another keepsake bouquet called “Love Letter”. The ‘flowers’ were made from vintage diaries and included photographs of loved ones to add another personal touch. The invitations in this shoot were provided by Papeterie Store.
