Always wanting to do a wedding inspiration shoot with a difference, photographer
Sharon Cooper finally found her mojo when she came up with this hotch-potch and patchwork theme. “I wanted to do something that packed a punch and used a range of uplifting colours”, she explained, “an alternative to weddings which have one single colour theme. This shoot embodies pleasing mixed colours and offers a smorgasbord of individualism. I found myself loving patchwork and texture and colour.”
The chair by designer
Kelly Swallow really was the staring point for this shoot. From there she had button bouquets made, stationery with an scrapbook vibe and dresses that push bridal boundaries. “I wanted to showcase my work and things I loved”, she concluded. “I’m really happy with how the shoot turned out. I wanted to show brides that by letting go of that idea of one limiting colour shade, they can select elements they love that still work together and add a contrast to their amazing choice of wedding gown.”

John Waters and Pink Flamingo Inspired Same Sex Wedding Shoot
February 25, 2014
Coming across the most amazingly colourful house by chance one day, wedding photographer Shannon Collins dreamed of being able to do a shoot there. Well fate stepped in, making it a possibility, so she knew she had to make it extra magical!
"Last year, I was photographing a couple in Philadelphia for an engagement shoot", wrote Shannon. "On my way home, a few minutes from the location, I drove past a lovely yellow house with tons of pink flamingos scattered across the lawn. I screeched my brakes and drove in reverse so I could capture a quick snapshot of the house. It instantly reminded me of the John Waters film, 'Pink Flamingos' and made me smile."
