Susan’s Paint The Dress Shoot

ColorMeRad_31

Susan wanted to get back into her wedding dress for a memorable photo shoot for her anniversary. When she married Jesse 10 years ago they had some trouble with their photographer (who, ahem, ended up in jail) so although they received some 4 x 6 prints, they didn’t manage to get an album or any photo enlargements made. They were also pretty unhappy with the portraits of Susan from the images they did get, and none of them showed off her beautiful dress in all it’s glory.

So, Susan contacted photographer Colleen of Color Me Rad and asked if they could do a trash the dress shoot – with paint and her two kids involved!

“This session was more than just trashing the dress” Colleen told me. “It was about giving Susan the bridal portraits she never had.”

Happy 3 year marriversay/9 year anniversary baby. I love you all of it and I couldn’t do this without you.

Blake & Megan’s Vintage, Diy, Anniversary Sesh

Blake & Megan have been married a few years but wanted to do a new photo shoot to reflect who they are as a couple right now (I’m hoping to convince Gareth to do the same thing soon – the latest photos we have of us together are our wedding photos. In these he has a shaved head (he now has long hair) and I have brown hair – we couldn’t be more different now!)

Blake & Megan and their photographer Daniel & his wife hunted in vintage shops, independent stores & consignment shops for the perfect vintage-inspired outfits and props, and everyone spent a long time on diy projects to make everything personal and perfect. On the day, they shot in Daniel’s back garden as well as a secret woods nature centre in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

Anniversary Love – A Vintage, Park Picnic

Oh I love featuring anniversary shoots. I get excited and all mushy to see how in love you guys are even after a few years of marriage…and of course they mean that there is no end to the inspiration I can give you – so don’t stop reading Rock n Roll Bride just because you’re married you hear!?

Sarah & Ben, have been married for 4 years and wanted to do a vintage rustic themed anniversary shoot in a park. They had a sweet lazy picnic going with apples and antique coca cola bottles where they could lie in the grass and enjoy the sun. They also climbed a tree together, wrote love letters on a typewriter, and listened to records. Their outfits were handpicked from estate sales, thrift stores, and Etsy and the props they brought – a portable record player, records, a birdcage, and a typewriter – were also from thrift & antique stores or passed down from family members.

Honeyversary.

You might remember Tim & Merrill’s self-engagement shoot (and here) or their ridiculously amazing wedding. If so, you’ll be just as excited to see their ‘Honeyversary’ shoot as I was yesterday. The couple are photographers and have just been married over a year. As they moved to New York pretty much straight after their wedding they never had time for a honeymoon so they decided to take a trip to Palm Springs this month.

They stayed at  Ace Hotel and Swim Club, a wonderfully retro cool and chic place, a style which they incorporated into the style of the photographs? “We love the mid century feel that Palm Springs has” Merrill explained. “All of the houses look so cool and the decorations are so retro-cool! While we were there we swam in the pool for hours on end, bought out all the records at the thrift stores, and of course, we did a photo shoot!”

Naomi, Josh & Kingsley

Oh I have been so excited about sharing this shoot with you all! I’m sure most of you will be familiar with this gorgeous little family. Naomi is the beautiful girl behind the uber popular Rockstar Diaries blog and her husband Josh and their new dog Kingsley play a staring role in it. These guys really are wonderful people. Sweet, kind and darling. Their blog posts never fail to cheer me and they just seem so genuinely LOVELY!

OK enough gushing…you’re going to adore these images taken at the DC Cherry Blossom Festival by their wedding photographer Leo Patrone (who I’m hoping to meet when he comes over to London soon!) The light, the colours, the fashion, the fun and lurrrve…aww just so perfect.
