All You Need is Love
April 20, 2010
I’m a big Beatles fan. I love the emotion and feeling behind their lyrics, so much so that
our first dance was ‘All you need is Love’ – the words of which I have tattooed on the inside of my wrist! So when photographer Amelia sent me Rachel & Joey’s Beatles themed engagement sesh, I jumped at the chance of a feature. I adore the adaptions of each song and famous moment – especially of course the John & Yoko Hair Peace Bed Peace scene. How many can you spot?
“Rachel & Joey are huge, and I mean huge Beatles fans” Amelia told me. “They were singing Beatles tunes the entire time we were shooting. For them, peace isn’t a fashion statement, its a lifestyle. They are both flower children and so in love. Rachel plans to walk down the aisle to Here Comes The Sun. For their engagement shoot I definitely wanted to incorporate their love for The Beatles, taking the lyrics of some of their favorite songs literally. I made some props and knew that I wanted to give the pictures a vintage feel.”
Thanks to Amelia for sharing this inspiring shoot with us today

The Cutest Rock n Roll Picnic
February 20, 2010
Yes, yes yes this post is heeeuge. Photographer Shannon sent me a little sneaky peak of Josiah & Dana's engagement session and I swooned as soon as I saw the shot with the silver glittery curtain behind them...but then I saw the coffee shop they started in, the photo booth shots and the cutest Rock n Roll picnic ever and I was smitten.
"This couple is sooooooooooooo cool." Shannon told me. "Like, truly, I went away from the session thinking "Man, I have to start being cooler" because they were literally too cool. Oh, and they have great style."
Pool. Picnic. Pimms.

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!
