I really try not to have favourites – I feel like a Mother favouring one child over another…but I’m afraid I have to admit, Tara Kneiser of Dixie Pixel is probably one of my all time favourite photographers and blogging buddies (sssh! Oh God, now I feel totally guilty!)
We met (as in online met) probably about a year ago when the old (RIP) Rock ‘n Roll Bride was still going, and I remember Tara telling me how she was desperate to shoot a really Rock ‘n Roll wedding…well finally I think she has got her wish!
Tara uses a combination of Holga and digital work, creating a unique and beautiful perspective of the world and a totally different take on the usual wedding photography.
The main reason she sent me this wedding was due to the shoes! How on earth did she know I would love them?!

I am a total wedding thief..I saw this on The Unbride and I’m sorry but I had to share too…it would be cruel to not point everyone in the direction of all this gorgeousness.
For all the info on this stunning, vintage day then clicky here…

My brain is a little bit of a sickly, hazy muddle right now and I literally can’t think of any words to describe this wedding…and that’s not fair because it is such a beautiful wedding. However I’m sure you can see yourselves just how beautiful and inspiring it is in it’s rustic and organic outdoorsiness, so I vote that you just enjoy the photographs!

A huge thanks to Sarah Sloboda for sending this stunning New York wedding my way! She insisted I checked out her site as she actually calls herself a Rock n Roll Photographer!
Sarah offers unique documentary wedding coverage that blends photojournalistic spontaneity with an artistic approach to create images that help you savor and cherish the moments of your wedding.

This portraits by Kellie Kano are simply stunning. Don’t you just love that sun, lens flare thing? (I’m sure there is an official term for this!) It really makes all the sparkles on the Bride’s dress pop!

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.
