An Urban Beach Engagement Shoot: Jeni & Manny
May 15, 2012
I don’t feature a while load of engagement sessions on my blog, but I simply couldn’t resist Jeni & Manny’s urban beach session. “When Boston make up artist/hair stylist extraordinaire,
Jeni Teran, contacted me regarding engagement photos with her fiancé, I immediately started brainstorming!” wedding photographer Shannon Grant told me. “How would I do justice to such a sweet and (ahem) gorgeous couple?”
“Keeping the background more neutral by using the beach really helped set off her unique style and the couple’s down to earth personalities. Sometimes less is more and with lots of color going on, a nice simple location really allows for people to shine! Just an outfit change, a blanket and their love was all we needed to create this fun loving, beautiful engagement session.”
Agreed! Totally beautiful. Thank you to Jeni & Manny and Shannon for sharing these today.

It may be a virtue, but patience certainly isn't something I have. Especially when it comes to sharing images like these ones. I was going to wait a little while to blog these, but it turns out I literally have no self control and I couldn't hold off any longer. I'm pretty sure you'll understand why...
Eeek so gorgeous!

A Mixed Media Engagement Shoot: Francis & Mayone
July 10, 2012
If you want to see photography that pushes boundaries then look no further than MangoRED. This Filipino duo have been pushing my buttons ever since I first discovered them waaaaay back at the beginning of 2009. Their work continues to inspire me to this day. Why? Because they're continually pushing themselves to create. Their work has evolved - almost into a completely different beast - but the essence of unadulterated and unapologetic creativity has remained a constant.

Call us vain, but we love hearing how Rock n Roll Bride magazine has helped with your wedding planning, but this may be a first! When Kirsty proposed to Vicky last year she used a copy of the magazine to do it!

What a Small World…
April 8, 2010
I love a shoot with a great story behind it...especially when it revolves around people I know! When bride-to-be Laura checked in on Rock n Roll Bride a few months ago she fell in love with the work of UK photographer, David McNeil. She promptly contacted him to arrange an engagement shoot in Brighton. Her fiance Nick and her turned up on the morning of the shoot, only to discover that unbeknownst to both of the boys, they already knew each other! David and Nick actually used to work together long before David tried his hand at wedding photography and Nick got engaged...but wait the tale gets stranger because when David sent me these images it turns out I used to work with Nick too! What a small world...

Lindsey and Kyle's engagement shoot is on a whole next level of CUTE. Kat first saw this in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group (which you can join here) and fell in love with them and their approach to wedding planning, as exemplified by this tropical-inspired photo shoot.

I've always loved laundrette photo sessions so when Brighton photographer Joanna Brown sent me this set I couldn't wait to share it...
"I have been living in quirky Kemptown in Brighton for some time and have always had my eye on the Laundrette round the corner thinking it would be perfect location for a shoot" Joanna told me. "I have always thought that there is something quite lovely and romantic about laundrettes; the sound of the machines quietly whirling that combined with complete strangers just hanging out sharing a really mundane chore. So I have been patiently waiting for my opportunity to arrive and hey presto a lovely couple got in touch and I could not quite believe it. Laura and Rikki met whilst studying at Bath University and had seen each other around the campus; at the bar, in the library and also spied each other at the local laundrette; after sometime Rikki finally asked Laura out and the rest is history. They are simply an adorable couple who have a great sense of humour, Rikki even took Laura on one of their first dates to a Laundrette (how romantic). We had a hoot at the Laundrette (I think some of the regulars thought we were balmy) especially when Laura lay on the floor for one of the shots; hey it is Brighton though anything goes!"
