Vintage, Eclectic & Fun – Your Style, Your Way
July 9, 2010
I love a good promotional photo shoot (
we all know that don’t we!) I think they are not only really good fun, but really amazing tools to showcase what you really can do – and therefore hopefully get the clients that you want. Ohio photographer Nikita Gross decided to set up this shoot to show the world what she loves to shoot – kick ass, alternative couples of course! The ‘bride’ Ashley, who owns Pinnokios Salon in Northside, did her own hair and makeup. She and her ‘groom’ Jeremy raided their own closets for these vintage and one-off pieces and the results are just so fun and eclectic. Jeremy’s American Apparel boots and vintage jacket are particularly sexy! I love.
Eeek….look at all these tattoos too!
Thanks to Nikita for not only being so creative but for sharing this creativity with us today!

You might recognise the utterly gorgeous singer and actress Kestrin Pantera from her 'Three Dresses & The Wedding of the Century' (part 2 here) wedding which exploded all over blog land a in May. Well how lucky am I? It turns out she's a Rock n Roll Bride fan and so sent me this totally awesome and slightly crazy photo shoot that she did recently.
‘Underwater Love’ Wedding Shoot
February 19, 2014
Inspired by the work of artist Marc Chagall and loving the fluid feel of the abstract paintings, wedding photographer Rosie Anderson wanted to create something similar in a series of photographs. To get that same fluid feel on her camera she had a brainwave - shooting underwater!

January 17, 2013
Bridal fashion doesn't have to be boring or ordinary. Oh no, why not take those old-fashioned ideas and flip them on their head?! Antlers, coloured gowns, cardigans, plaid... the possibilities are endless!
Marilyn Monroe & Arthur Miller’s Wedding
January 8, 2016
So I haven't actually got the scoop of the century, sharing unseen photos from Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller's wedding... but I've got the next best thing! This shoot, photographed and styled by Claire Macintyre Photography, has got to be one of the closest homages to this iconic wedding that I've ever seen!
A Trailer Trash Bridal Shoot with a Vintage Airstream
August 25, 2012
"Ever since I spent time travelling from Nashville to San Francisco last Autumn, I've benn obsessed with wanting to recreate vintage Americana!" wrote stylist Lynsey Le Keux. "This summer I had the pleasure of making it happen. I got together with some serious wedding industry talent including Sassy of Assassynation and Jo of The Couture Company. Our theme was 'trailer trash chic' which basically meant coney neck beers, dust-caked American cars, sweat smudged make up and broad blue skies. The aim was to portray unique bridal beauty against a backdrop of pure gritty trash... We wanted to inspire bridal styling outside of tradition and show our customers that they don't have to follow convention to rock a wedding - bridal beauty is subjective and one thing all the collaborators agreed on was how much we loved customers who did things their way."
Surprise Pool Party Wedding Recreation
November 19, 2012
Oh I love a surprise wedding! And a surprise wedding + pool party!? EPIC!
But this wasn't actually a real wedding (sad face) although it was set up as a recreation of the actual wedding of some friends of the photographer who were married 30 years ago. Jessie & Kenny had this actual wedding, in this exact same spot in 1982 (some of their wedding photos are at the end of the gallery - how amazing are they?!) So to celebrate, and to have an their anniversary party with a difference, they decided to relive the whole thing. This is a styled shoot with a difference and, yes, they really had the big party afterwards!
Wild and Overgrown Bridal Editorial
December 1, 2013
Wedding photographer Morgan Wade had been dreaming of a bridal shoot in an overgrown forest for ages. Eventually she plucked up the courage to just go out and shoot it, and she brought an amazing team along with her. "My initial goal was to create a sort of anti-editorial; something that would appeal to a wilder kind of woman", she wrote. "A bride who wanted to sidestep all the pretty stuff and just go for raw. I knew it wouldn't be for everyone, and that's okay. Somewhere out there are women who have to hold back the urge to howl at the moon; those are my brides."
Lady in the Lake Bridal Shoot
May 11, 2013
Shooting a bride in water is nothing new, but there was just something about this Lady in the Lake inspired shoot that spoke to me. I love the bride's beautiful blue, green and purple mermaid hair (obviously) and the simple yet edgy styling ideas are pretty damn awesome aren't they? I'd love to see a future real bride carrying a rustic and dramatic bouquet like some of these.
