When I received a sweet email from Lizeth & Rafter asking if I’d like to check out their engagement session I was shocked to discover that their super modest and a-a-amazingly talented photographer
Brion Hopkins had never submitted any of his work to a blog before! Blog land has seriously been missing out! I am nuts about all the colour. Each photo looks like it has it’s own little rainbow shining down on it…yummy.
I am over the moon and uber excited to be the first blog to share his work and this session in particular. Aren’t Lizeth & Rafter such a cool couple!? She is a
photographer herself and he is a music master. Rock n Roll indeed!
Broin – get submitting your work to blogs – they will go nuts for stuff like this. Thanks to Lizeth & Rafter for not only sharing their session but for introducing me to one of my new favourite photographers!

Urban, Girtty, Hearts & Love

Emma & Mattias' urban & gritty engagement session in Hackney Wick (the East End of London) have inspired me no end. I not only love the rough 'n ready, graffiti style shots (which are fast becoming a bit of a McNeil signature) but the wonderful heart shots send my heart a-flutter. I asked David how this images came about and he told me that as they were wondering down the street, looking for locations, they came across a hall where a Valentines night was being set up. They asked nicely if they would use their heart covered wall as a backdrop and the lovely people said yes. Aren't the results fabulous?
Another photographic win for my friend David I feel!
Thanks to David for sending these over today

‘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."

Soulmates & Magic
May 6, 2010
Chihye & Tom's LA engagement speaks volumes of their love. From the simple moments between these two to the beautiful field full of ruby red heart balloons - what's not to love about these?
It would appear that photographer Chrissy agrees with me "I don’t know if I have the words to accompany these photos. They truly speak for themselves. A couple so deeply and genuinely in love mixed with God’s beauty creates the most gorgeous moments. Chihye and Tom are another one of my kindful couples, our first meeting lasted hours over Sangria and Cuban food. The longer I do my job the more I believe in soulmates and magic." (and I swear to God I wrote by 'bit' before I even read hers! It must be love...)

Funfair? Check... Balloons? Check...Adorable couple? Check...That gorgeous streaming Californian light? Check!
It seems I will never tire of this scenario for an engagement shoot - it really shows the a fun side to any couple that just can't help but make me smile - especially that 'slide' shot - how much fun does that look?! Oh how I love it so...
Thanks to the gooorrrrgeous Sarah for sharing with me!
