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.
“They have a area in the back set up with some of their old signs and other marquees that they have bought from businesses that went out of business” photographer Jessica told me. “The couple are
caterers her in town and they are AWESOME! www.cateringwithatwist.comis their site. They definitely have that cool rockabilly tattooed awesomeness on a day to day basis so this shoot was totally an extension of their personality. They were the ones that wanted to park his sweet ride in the middle of Congress Ave. Which is one of the busiest tourist streets in Austin so I was a little nervous that someone would hit their car. But it came out AMAZING! Also James loves big trees so we found some awesome trees with tons of knots in them. It was soooo hot that day that we stuck to a few places but I really think it turned out to be awesome!”
Thanks to photographer Jessica for sharing these

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?

Janel & Jim are one of those couple's the completely ooze cool. Their retro style - vespas, rockabilly hair, vans, pin up shoes and a teeny tiny dog - played huge part in their engagament session. Stay tuned for their gorgeous 'retro Italian' themed wedding next!

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.
Punk Rock with Pink Hair

Although Tiffany & Alan are technically already married, they never ha d a 'proper' wedding and so decided they needed to do it all again - only this time better! The couple, who already have a 4 month old baby (you would never guess after looking at the teeny tiny Tiffany - erm wow hot mama!) will be re-tying the knot next month and I can not wait to see the results!
Sugar & Spice
October 15, 2009
Well people, hold on to your hats and prepare yourself for another bumper day of Rock n Roll goodness. Did something magical happen overnight or something? I have received a ridiculous number of amazing photo sessions and weddings this morning - I just hope I can bring them all to you soon!
Starting off today is this gorgeous 'sugar and spice' rockabilly couple. She's a ballerina, he's a total petrol head (I think in America you call them 'gear heads'? - whatever, he is nuts about cars!) Cassy & Kelly headed to pier 39 in San Francisco with photographer Marin Kristine to get these amazing carousel/carnival/fun fair shots. The couple will be having a pin up style wedding in just 2 weeks and boy am I excited to see the results!
Thanks to the lovely Marin for sending these over.

The awesome Marianne Taylor (who shot my pinky, punky princess shoot) just sent me a selection of her most recent engagement sessions and Sam & Adam's jumped out at me right away. Not only have I got a unhealthy obsession with toy cameras right now (they used a Diana camera as a prop) but the couple are just to damn right funky for words.
I am loving Mr. Whippy ice cream, the light up heart shaped display, the neon back lights and of course the fact that these images are quintessential London baby!
Thanks to the ever gorgeous Marianne for sending these over.
