A Grocery Store Engagement Shoot: Colleen & Mike
February 27, 2012
This grocery shopping engagement shoot made me giggle. It’s not often I see a supermarket looking so chic and cool. In fact I love it so much that I’m even considering not doing my usual ‘let’s put off the food shopping until all we have left in our cupboards is mayonnaise and gin…’ dance and popping down to my local store right now to see what inspiration is lurking among the tins of beans and frozen peas…
“We didn’t want your typical ‘day in the park/vintage picnic’ engagement session, so we picked our favorite corner grocery store that has a bit of an offbeat feel to it,” Colleen told me. “The sandwiches at their deli counter are killer and while you wait for them to prepare your food you can sit in their lounge area and catch up on some reading, play retro Atari or peruse the aisles for random groceries and delicious libations. The store has a retro feel to it, so we chose our wardrobe to reflect that 50s grocer feel. We both live in the area and have
loved their sandwiches for years. Mike’s favorite sandy is the Baron Rodgers and mine is the Frukwine- yum!”
Thank you to Colleen & Mike for sharing these 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."
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!

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!
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!

A Food Fight Engagement Shoot: Kim & Phil
November 30, 2011
Kim & Phil were the lucky couple who won an engagement and video shoot with Assassynation, Sassy n Frank and Elbie Van Eeden. Their idea for a crazy shoot was a food fight as Kim explained in her entry,
"We got engaged on 1st April 2011, yes you heard right, April Fool's Day, and with this in mind we would like to continue our personalities and character traits in an engagement shoot. The theme I see is a food fight, with bright and colourful food such as cupcakes, hotdogs, condiments (almost American food style) between myself and my fiancé."
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.
