A Spider Ring, A Diamond Skull & Empire State Building Shoes
July 22, 2010
I think the phrase ‘off the hook’ was invented for engagement sessions like this. Danielle & Ed have such amazing style! First up her ring is a custom made creation by
Greenlake Jewelry Works…and it’s a spider! The heart diamond in the ring actually belonged to Danielle’s Grandmother.
Secondly her shoes are in the design of The Empire State Building (wow!) by Geox and thirdly they have a crystal encrusted skull lamp that they found unadorned in a vintage shop. Danielle & Ed added all the sparkles themselves…I love it. In fact I want one!
The couple are getting married in August and are having a Marie Antoinette theme – now that’s a wedding I’m going to want to see
ps isn’t their house just fabulous!?!?
Thanks to Danielle & Ed and their photographer Barbie for sharing this session today

‘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."

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.
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.
Teen Vogue Inspired Engagement Shoot
September 23, 2010
This sweet and cute engagement session is something a bit different to what I often post. However I thought Krystle & Derek's Teen Vogue inspired shoot was the perfect way to show that you don't have to be all about tattoos, props and vintage picnics to be considered Rock n Roll! The couple, from Manila in the Philippines, styled their shoot themselves to have a 'mix n match' simple fashion-shoot theme. " We simply wanted our photos to look fun, flirty, fresh and alive with simple props" they told me.
Chris & Jenn’s Retro Rockabilly Engagement
January 5, 2011
Today's feature is a bit of a double part-er. I was sent Chris & Jenn's wedding by their photographer's Encarnacion Photography, but when I saw their e-session I knew I had to share it first. How cute are these two?
Jennifer & Adam’s Tennessee Treat
November 18, 2010
I'm featuring less engagement sessions than I used to at the moment. Mainly because I'm getting so many awesome weddings to feature from you lot that I simply haven't got the time to share as many as I'd like. However, when I see a session like Jennifer & Adam's, I remember that rules are meant to be broken! The pair chose the location for their shoot because it was the very place that Cas Walker originally broadcast Dolly Parton on the radio - and I'm reliably informed that this is a big deal in Tennessee, maybe like The Beatles here in the UK!?
