Crazy, Mismatched & Colourful
February 26, 2010
this stunning film noir style shoot that I featured back in May? Well the couple Sami & Katherine are now getting married and who better to shoot their engagements at the amazingly bright Hirshhorn Museum (and upcoming wedding of course) than there friend Emily Porter?
“Sami’s socks are always crazy and mismatched and he shares my love of short doses of things – TV shows instead of movies, short stories instead of novels. He loves jazz. And probably once every few months he’ll message me asking for my photoshop “expertise” in making some crazy graphic for a tshirt. Once it was Sarah Palin’s face superimposed on a daisy. Most recently he asked me to photoshop a cape onto a picture of Ronald Reagan on a horse.”
“Their apartment is full of bookcases. Some of them are filled entirely with books on learning different languages because Katherine’s brain must always be taking in new information. She studies for fun. Katherine speaks with a thick New York accent and every time I visit her I get treated to the most wonderful of facial masks.”
Thanks to Emily for sharing this fun, colourful shoot with us

I must preface this feature by letting you all know that this is an explicit photo session, and one that not everyone will be comfortable looking at. But in the spirit of Rock n Roll Bride being about self-expression and doing whatever is right for you and your partner, I really wanted to share it! There are a lot of NSFW photos featured below and while I personally think they're really tastefully done and the story behind them is one worth sharing, I understand that not everyone will agree.

‘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."
