A Mystical Fairytale
November 7, 2009
Anyone that has been reading Rock n Roll Bride for some time now will know that I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with the
MangoRED boys. The brothers from The Philippines never fail to blow me away with the ingenious eye behind on every shoot or wedding they capture.
How is photography like this even possible?! I literally have no words…
Ryan & Randall, as always, I am forever in your blogging debt! I am truly honoured that you would want my little blog to share work so bloody fantastic

‘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."
Woodland Motorcycle Engagement Shoot: Kate & Brandon
Keith A Savage
February 16, 2013
Engagement shoots might not be everyone's bag, in fact I rarely blog them myself. But when I saw Kate & Brandon's intimate and utterly gorgeous shoot I knew I had to break my self-imposed rule. I love how these images perfectly reflect the couple - their likes and dislikes, the things they do together and who they are as people - without any pretentiousness. Nothing is overdone and nothing has been imposed by the stylist - it just shows them.
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!
Gothic Woodland Engagement Shoot: Adriana & Ben
December 5, 2012
I do love winter wedding inspiration, but more than that, I love winter inspiration that's a little bit more edgy. Gothic even. To me, winter is the perfect opportunity to embrace your dark side.
And for their engagement shoot, Adriana & xx wanted to to just that as well. "I wanted to really go all out and embodied the darker side of us for our engagement shoot", Adriana explained. "We really weren't trying to be 'dark', we were just trying to be true to us. My fiancé is a musician and I am a event creative director, so I really wanted our passions to be apparent in this shoot. I wanted to create an enchanting feeling and our own little creative fantasy."
A Medical Themed Engagement Shoot: Gem & Jay-R
June 11, 2012
No-one does engagement shoots like photographers from The Philippines... and Gem and Jay-R's shoot by WeDoItForLove is no exception!I love this for it's super creative and totally over-exaggerated concept.
Red vs Blue Engagement Shoot: Dantley & Christina
Rock Paper Scissors
June 15, 2013
It may be a massive generalisation, but in my experience no-one does engagement shoots like those creative folks in The Philippines. It's very rare that I featured these kinds of shoots any more, but when I'm presented with something like this, there is no way I'm going to turn it down!
A Boxing Engagement: Jmie & KC
June 29, 2012
I have another amazing engagement shoot from Rex of WeDoItForLove for you this morning. I've said it before and I'll say it again - no-one does engagement shoots like those Filipino wedding photographers!
Jmie & KC love contact sports, particularly boxing, so theming their shoot around this was a really fun way for them to celebrate their engagement. "People usually choose themes where they will look really beautiful", Rex told me. "So it was really awesome that they chose a theme that's was a bit gritty and less beautiful. It also didn't need so much styling as they already owned all the kit. The shoot was devised around the 'actions' which made it really fun to do."
Wonderful Woodland Engagement Shoot
June 24, 2016
When I first saw Jody and Shane's engagement shoot (the bride shared some shots in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group!) I almost let out an involuntary squeak. I'm sorry but how friggin' gorgeous are this pair!? If you're considering not bothering with an engagement session, I kinda feel these might start to change your mind a little bit...
