“Christina has a love for all things vintage.” photographer Krys told me when she sent over Christina & CW’s engagement session. “She says, “if it looks old, I love it”, so we were on the same page with the idea of old buildings, rust, chipped bricks, and whatever else we could find in DeLand, FL where we had their engagement shoot. Christina and CW are definitely an amazing couple to work with. Not only were they down for anything I threw at them, they were amazing models as well (they also didn’t mind at all when I dropped an F-bomb or two). Christina wore a cute red swing dress with a sweet heart top and electric blue wedges (later some vintage white wedges with an ankle strap). Too cute. CW, or C-Dub as I have nicknamed him, wore a western shirt and cowboy boots. This shoot was inspired by The Notebook, the south, and turning an ugly setting into prettiness.”
Thanks to Krys for sharing this beautiful shoot with us

‘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."
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!
A South African Farmyard Engagement Shoot with a Miniature Horse: Nicola & Pete
August 20, 2012
If you're going to have a themed engagement shoot then you might as well go all out right? Which is why Nicola & Pete's farmyard themed shoot slays me. Hay bales, chickens... oh and the cutest miniature horse you ever did see!

You've got to see Kassie & James' killer Roadhouse Relics (Texas) engagement shoot! The vintage, western, neon retro decor and 50's rockabilly vibe proved to be the perfect location for such an awesome couple. The store, which specialises in neon signs allowed the couple an hour to come in and get some fabulous photographs.
Cooking Calamity Engagement Shoot: Shaughnessy & Kyle
September 29, 2013
I wouldn't say I'm a cooking calamity but it's certainly not something I excel at (this coming from the girl who put so much hot sauce on her husband's dinner the other night that he was gulping milk for an hour - ho hum) So I guess you could say that this hilarious engagement shoot set up resonated with me!

Retro Art Deco Kitsch
July 13, 2010
I LOVE a bit of retro kitsch and Caroline & Jim couldn't be more perfect at pulling this off if they tried. The shoot took place in their own Art Deco apartment in Brighton (just check out the exterior shots!) which has been decorated with an eclectic mix of bits and bobs collected from all over and ranging in era from the 1920's right through to the 1970's. I adore everything from the authentic mirror, clocks and Princess Anne collectible mugs to the incredible wallpaper and all the retro furniture.
Jim is 'Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer' , a brilliant musician playing all over the country at gigs, weddings, parties and festivals. Caroline has a complete passion for fashion as she works in the fashion industry in London. The pair both embrace everything retro and nostalgic in fashion and styling, so their style was spot on for this style of shoot. The couple both wore all their own clothes to give a completely genuine portrayal of themselves and who they are as a couple.
Channelling Steve McQueen
March 17, 2010
When Christina & Mitch turned up to their engagement session with their beloved '68 Corvette in tow, photographer Clayton Austin was instantly inspired and channeled Steve McQueen as the idea behind the shoot. As a little bit of a petrol head myself, I can totally relate to how Clayton described the day.
