Vintage Pin Up Wedding…The Engagements
February 24, 2009
Heather send me an email today telling me all about her and her fiance, Lucas’ plans for their rock n roll, vintage pinup, burlesque stylee wedding and I am so excited, I can’t wait to see the results! The wedding is taking place on the 28th March but I have told her I want the photographs as soon as she has them as I know you will all love them!
To whet my appetite, she had send me some of their engagement shots, taken in the first car Hugh Hefner ever gave to one of his playmates (erm awesome!) The Groom-to-be’s Dad purchased the car an at auction. Also check out the couple’s wicked invitations – they are miniature version of an old record and album cover. The CD (disguised as vinyl) has been placed in a paper jacket that looks like an album sleeve. The CD is also loaded with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Detroit Cobras, Rev. Horton Heat and Surf music. Tp save money, the graphic designing couple designed and made them themselves. I really can’t wait can you?
For now, soak up the joy that is their engagement snaps…

‘Til Death Do Us Party Wedding Shoot: Angelo & Rin
July 22, 2011
"Angelo and I were super lucky to have design/photography duo Everywhere We Shoot on board to do our prenup photography," bride-to-be Rin writes. "These guys are friends who frequent the same gigs, art spaces, and thrift shops that we go to. Their philosophy has always been to keep doing and creating, not for money, but just because they love what they do. And knowing that we were on a budget-DIY-wedding, they agreed to do a pro bono engagement shoot for us in a heartbeat. I was also blessed to have a former schoolmate slash band groupie of mine, Kitty Caragay, do my make-up."

Burnt Down House Engagements
June 28, 2009
Tina & Derek's engagements in a burnt out house are so. damn. cool! I am loving the fireplace, the awesome chair and the feather. These have such an intense beauty to them...much love! Photographer Jen Arthur also shot some post wedding portraits as the couple eloped so didn't have pro wedding photographs, which I can't wait to see too.
Game of Thrones Engagement Shoot: Karlee & Justin
February 17, 2013
Confession time: I've never seen Game of Thrones. I know, I know, my geek credentials should be thrown out of the window and I should hang my head in shame... But needless to say I know a good thing when I see it, and Karlee & Justin's engagement shoot certainly fits that bill.
Vancouver Island in British Columbia was the perfect spot for this DIY shoot - oh yes, I said DIY - the pair made their outfits themselves from scratch!
A Garden Engagement with Giant Animal Heads: Elodie & Alexis
August 9, 2012
I've got a double dose of the gorgeous Elodie & Alexis today, starting with their incredible engagement shoot. Shot by film-loving photographer Ashton Jean-Pierre, this stylish couple flew him from London to Normandy, France to shoot their engagement and wedding.
Ashton is deaf as are both Elodie & Alexis. They found Ashton at World Deaf Art Festival in Reims, near Paris, last Summer. Elodie also happens to be a Rock n Roll Bride fan, hurrah! As soon as they met, they knew Ashton was the perfect wedding photographer for them. After 10 months of communicating via email it was finally time to shoot!
High Fashion Farm Engagement
December 2, 2012
Honestly? I'm not going to pretend that I really understand this shoot... but for some reason I just really love it. It must be the weird juxtaposition between designer handbags, shoes on a roof, giant bunnies and bondage... and hell, I'm not adverse to a bit of randomness!
Deer Forest Engagement Shoot: Meggi & Josh
November 17, 2012
Meggi & Josh's engagement shoot may not be the most extravagant shoot I've ever featured but it's certainly one of the most beautiful. Have you ever seen deer so tame?! What gorgeous photographs to remember this special time in their lives.

August 20, 2012
If you're going to have a themed engagement shoot then you might as well go all out right? Which is why Nicola & Pete's farmyard themed shoot slays me. Hay bales, chickens... oh and the cutest miniature horse you ever did see!
