Under The Spotlight – Lara Jade

So I don’t usually post a selection of photographers work, preferring to focus on one wedding, engagement or photo shoot instead of a bit of a mish-mash. However I believe I am able to make an exception for Lara Jade. The twenty year old (yes I know!) fashion photographer, originally from Tamworth but now living in London, is quite frankly so inspiring and talented that she really deserves every single image of hers to be posted.

Lara’s fashion and editorial style is second to none. Just check out these images and tell me you’re not in love with them?

Unfortunately with her being so fabulous and all, her work is often stolen and used illegally (and yes I did get permission for this post!) If you fancy hearing more about this then I just found this fab BBC video all about it.

Thanks to the gorgeous Lara for working with me on the post (note: I now have a total girl-crush on her.)
If you are a photographer or vendor yourself and are interested in being a subject in an ‘Under the Spotlight’ feature then get in touch for all the info!

Local Talent

This is something a little different for me to post but when I saw Rosie Parsons‘ last few ‘detail shoots’ I fell in love! The Bristol – based photographer has a great relationship with some fantastic local vendors, from Clara Bows who rents and sells gorgeous vintage crockery, to local florists Bella & Fifi with whom Rosie spend the day dashing around the city delivering blooms in an adorable eco-chic piaggio. Finally I had to share some photographs from Gilly Woo, a good friend of Rosies’ 30th birthday a few weeks ago. The birthday girl is also a ridiculously talented dress maker and so not only are the images pretty damn stunning but how retro chic gorgeous is the her sparkly gold vintage glam dress?

Infatuation.

Is is possible to have an addiction to a set of photographers? Because I definitely have a really intense Tinywater habit. Every day I need to get my fix…and it feels gooooood.

One day I will travel to Sacramento and track down Caroline & Daniel as I hold them personally responsible for my infatuation.

Pin Up Vixen

It’s nice to break away from all the weddingness sometimes and just spend some time enjoying some non wedding inspiration and Taylor’s senior portraits fall smack bang into this category. I’m sure it’s pretty obvious why I love these – the colours, the contrast and her gorgeous retro rockabilly style – she has got that pin up thing down to a tee with her fluttering eyelashes and her matt, crimson lips. Can you believe this gal is only 18!?

ps I ♥  that egg chair a little too much!

Circus Act Of Colour

Rock n Roll Bride sponsor Michelle of Oeil Photography sent me an exclusive peek at her newest photographic creation. A lucid ballet of light, colour and fabulous fashion, these shots just make me want to dress up in a bright yellow ‘cage’ dress and get my pose on!

Models Rene, Lauren (who actually made the yellow cage) and Tara (of Trigger Happy Photo) seriously rocked this shoot – stepping away from any fancy frou frou weddingness in favour of playing along in their very own circus act of colour, experimentation and edgy fashion.

Mirror Mirror

I am all about the swooning this (slightly) sunny Saturday morning. I love the idea of using the vintage mirror in so many different but equally gorgeous ways.
