A Simply Stunning Engagement: Justin & Alanna
June 15, 2012
Engagement shoots can get a little cray cray. Props, expensive outfits and mental locations, while all lovely, are not what makes a good one. To me, a cute couple being themselves and showing their love
their way is what matters. Dear Justin & Alanna, you did this amazingly!
“Justin & Alanna are super rad”, their photographers
He and She Photography told me, “and we just so happen to be good friends with them. They’ve got style for days, so we knew we were in for a treat when they asked us to do their engagement session. Sure enough, these cool cats blew us away!”
“We spent the day hanging out in San Luis Obispo and exploring a bunch of different areas. We started downtown, then went to San Simeon (where Hearst Castle is) and then hit a hidden gem close to our house – rolling hills of 4 foot tall wheat. There is no theme to their session, just them being them and us being us.”
Oh and you do it so well! Huge love and thanks to you all for sharing this today.

It's such an honour that someone would send me a session to post only the day after they shot it! Photographer Ben Godkin was so convinced that Mandy & Braxton's engagement session was perfect for Rock n Roll Bride that he didn't hesitate to email me some images - even before the whole set was complete!
"The couple , who are fierce backgammon players, were so fun and wanted to get some unique shots for their engagement photos! Ben wrote. "They were staying at a cozy little Bed and Breakfast called Settlers Crossing in Fredericksburg to finalize the details of their small wedding at Beckers wine vineyard in Sept. Mandy and Braxton had many tattoos but two that were particularly meaningful. They both had "Soul Mates" tattooed on both hands so when they joined hands they would always be reminded of their love. There was an abundance of farm animals on the property including horses, sheep, and donkeys, so we couldn't resist using them in the shoot. Then we headed to a local land mark called Enchanted Rock and made the 20min hike up just in time to watch the sunset, and the full moon rise... It was magical!"

I am on a blogging roll this morning hey? Can't stop now though, I've got Keith & Rachel's amazing engagements to show you. The couple (who I swear to God should be models) will actually be getting married at the exact location of this shoot. Keith is a tattoo artist and did the awesome sleeve on Rachel's arm.
I was shocked to hear that Corin's photography had never been blogged before - it is stunning! I am super excited to be the first wedding blog to share her work with the world. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of her.
Coolest Engagement Shoot to Date – FACT: Ainsley & Sebastien
September 18, 2013
I'm pretty sure there is no couple in the world that could possibly come close to being as awesome as Ainsley and Sebastien. This is one of those engagement shoots that as soon as I saw it I was dying to see the wedding already, wondering what they could possibly do to top these photos.

Game of Thrones Engagement Shoot: Karlee & Justin
February 17, 2013
Confession time: I've never seen Game of Thrones. I know, I know, my geek credentials should be thrown out of the window and I should hang my head in shame... But needless to say I know a good thing when I see it, and Karlee & Justin's engagement shoot certainly fits that bill.
Vancouver Island in British Columbia was the perfect spot for this DIY shoot - oh yes, I said DIY - the pair made their outfits themselves from scratch!
A NSFW, Super Intimate Engagement Shoot
February 21, 2018
I must preface this feature by letting you all know that this is an explicit photo session, and one that not everyone will be comfortable looking at. But in the spirit of Rock n Roll Bride being about self-expression and doing whatever is right for you and your partner, I really wanted to share it! There are a lot of NSFW photos featured below and while I personally think they're really tastefully done and the story behind them is one worth sharing, I understand that not everyone will agree.
