Bicycles, Sparklers & a Whole lotta Style
May 28, 2010
Carley & Graham wanted a vintage theme for their engagement session. Now I know we hear the term ‘vintage’ thrown all over blog-land like it’s going out of fashion, but I really do love the feel to these (note: if anyone can think of another word to describe ‘vintage’ please let me know – I’m kinda getting sick of writing it!) But anyway, that’s besides the point – Carley & Graham’s session does have a beautifully authentic vintage aesthetic to it…and for that I love it!
Carley put so much heart and soul into their shoot and she brought along a whole bunch of creative things to incorporate. Touches like her and Graham’s vintage-style bikes (so COOL!) and her favourite camera that she got at a second hand store for only $15! Both Carley and Graham also put alot of thought into their outfits which really added to the over all vibe of the session and made it even more perfectly…well…vintage.
Thanks to Jess for sharing this session with us today

Oh how I love the crazy, mad world that MangoRED create with their photography. Who else could come up with something so magical, hilarious, joyful and original!? Check out the styling...I have a total compulsion to dress up like a soya drink carton or wear an outfit to match my wallpaper right now...

Urban, Girtty, Hearts & Love
February 19, 2010
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

Fresh New Talent

I am on a blogging roll this morning hey? Can't stop now though, I've got Keith & Rachel's amazing engagements to show you. The couple (who I swear to God should be models) will actually be getting married at the exact location of this shoot. Keith is a tattoo artist and did the awesome sleeve on Rachel's arm.
I was shocked to hear that Corin's photography had never been blogged before - it is stunning! I am super excited to be the first wedding blog to share her work with the world. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of her.
Pool. Picnic. Pimms.
