Vintage, Eclectic & Fun – Your Style, Your Way

I love a good promotional photo shoot (we all know that don’t we!) I think they are not only really good fun, but really amazing tools to showcase what you really can do – and therefore hopefully get the clients that you want. Ohio photographer Nikita Gross decided to set up this shoot to show the world what she loves to shoot – kick ass, alternative couples of course! The ‘bride’ Ashley, who owns Pinnokios Salon in Northside, did her own hair and makeup. She and her ‘groom’ Jeremy raided their own closets for these vintage and one-off pieces and the results are just so fun and eclectic. Jeremy’s American Apparel boots and vintage jacket are particularly sexy! I love.

Eeek….look at all these tattoos too!

“Marilyn! Marilyn!”

Rebecca’s retro taxi session is so marilyn! In fact while they were shooting people were driving past honking their horns and shouting “Marilyn! Marilyn!”

She wore a dress from a five & dime store (I don’t know what this is…we don’t have these in Londontown) and she made her own gorgeous hairpiece.

Pom Poms, Succulents, Neon Cheesecakes & Californian Sun

This wicked shoot was put together by Bowman Nichols Event Consulting. They wanted to highlight the beauty of California’s Central Coast and the historic and rustic elegance of the Santa Margarita Ranch, but in a fun and fabulously colourful way. They put together a rustic feeling set up with the table in the field and the almost neon cake/flower table. “We were looking to craft a rustic feel pulling inspiration from the colour palate and style of the Carlisle linen pattern from BBJ Linen.  The concept was to accentuate a blend of traditional and non-traditional elements for the bride and groom, while staying with the feel of the venue in its rural tradition” they explained.

The couple they chose for the shoot was also very important to them as they wanted a pair that could pull of an alternative, edgy feel. “For the couple, we paired an edgy, big city, tattooed groom Josh, with a beautiful blonde, 1950’s inspired bride Natalie, for a Rock n Roll feel.  Natalie wore a vintage inspired, short lace gown by Alfred Angelo and western style cowboy boots.  To tie in the theme of color we chose large non-traditional jewellery embellished in turquoise with red and black accents to play up to her rockabilly groom.   The bouquet was a beautiful unique arrangement adorned with billy balls, kangaroo paw, and succulents pulling in the bright contrasting colour.”

Dressing on the Side

Sometimes we all need a break from the world of wedding-madness and could do with a sit down to look at something beautiful, pretty and fun for no real reason than the fact that it’s awesome. That’s why I’m sharing this ridiculously cool 80’s punk rock fashion editorial submitted by the super cool Galaxie Andrews.

Galaxie (I can’t get over how much I love her name) wanted to set up this shoot to help promote a local Arizona designer Donna from Dressing on the Side, who has an etsy store devoted to funky food-inspired tee-shirts. “We had a world-rocking team of designer, stylist, art director, models, all working together on this project making it completely awesome. donna even had a fashion designer cut up her shirts to give them a cool edge. We roamed around in our little western style old-town scottsdale, rented a horse carriage, ate ice-cream in an arcade, and played until sunset” Galaxie told me.
