Recapture Designs – Re-Styled Vintage Dresses
March 1, 2011
This beautiful photo shoot sent over by
Deborah Huber Photography was put together to showcase some of the designs sold by Oakland-based Recapture Designs (who do ship internationally – check out their etsy store!)
They say, “Recapture specializes in re-styling vintage gowns for the modern bride. Most gowns are made with precious materials and laces that are difficult to find in today’s market. My goal is to re-create a dress to fit and flatter your figure and your style while preserving the beauty and integrity of the materials. With a wide variety of gowns from Victorian to the 1970′s, a bride is able to choose a design and style that is unique to her personality and her figure.”
Big love and thanks to Deborah for sharing her images with us today

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."
Go Wild with A Most Curious Party
August 11, 2012
I'm obsessed with this shoot, set up by Becky Hoh-Hale to promote her new breed of vintage wedding fair, A Most Curious Party. If you've been reading Rock n Roll Bride for a while you might recognise that name - I've been lucky enough to feature two of their shoots to promote previous events (as well as Rebecca's own gorgeous wedding).
Alongside the amazing Joanna Millington Photography and some of the other suppliers exhibiting at the shows, Becky wanted to showcase a unique twist on the vintage wedding trend - it's not all tea length 50s dresses and mismatched crockery here! "We had big plans for this shoot", explained Becky. "Originally we wanted to shoot in the Norfolk Woods, where much of the flat landscape looks like the set of Spike Jones’s 'Where the Wild Things Are' but on the day we were strewn with drizzle, which eventually turned into full blown rain, which eventually turned into hail. So onto plan B!"
An Edgy & Urban Bridal Shoot
August 8, 2012
This shoot was set up for Bow Wood Florist, based in Forney, a small town just outside of Dallas. They wanted some edgier images to really show modern brides what they can do. They created the bouquet but allowed photographer Britney of Tucker Images to let her imagination run wild with the styling and location of the shoot.

February 2, 2014
Roni and David had their first baby, Quintessa, a few months ago. So when their friend, pro photographer Mysi of Soda Fountain Photography asked if they'd like do a shoot inspired by their love of music, they jumped at the chance to get some gorgeous photos of themselves and their new addition.
