It doesn’t get more Rock n Roll perfect than this! Sommer & Dan’s wedding took place in an old mill is Somerset, New Jersey which is owned by Dan’s parents. The bride wore a 1950s prom dress from Ebay and snakeskin Kate Spade shoes. The groom rocked it in a custom suit with spiderweb lining and the bridesmaids looked the part in leopard print shoes. To top off the day, Bruce, the family pet rooster, served as ring bearer and apparently he did a great job!
Rock n Roll Bride sponsor Michelle of Oeil Photography sent me an exclusive peek at her newest photographic creation. A lucid ballet of light, colour and fabulous fashion, these shots just make me want to dress up in a bright yellow ‘cage’ dress and get my pose on!
Models Rene, Lauren (who actually made the yellow cage) and Tara (of Trigger Happy Photo) seriously rocked this shoot – stepping away from any fancy frou frou weddingness in favour of playing along in their very own circus act of colour, experimentation and edgy fashion.
Although Suzanne & Eric are getting married in Hong Kong, they chose to have their engagement session in London surrounded by the iconic landmarks of the city. Oh and how beyond gorgeous is Suzanne’s dress by the way?!
Thanks to Craig & Chanelle for sharing this gorgeous session
The Infinite Design team went for something totally different for Brady and Nithya’s wedding trailer. The result is something with much more of a filmic feel – blurring the lines between cinematography and videography so to speak. It evokes the emotion and the vibe of the wedding in a much more subtle way. I totally love it. It brings me back to my university days studying film and makes me feel ever so slightly intelligent again!
Thanks so much to Tim for sharing this special film
I love this shoot and I love the inspirational Bride in her ‘something blue’ Doc Martins, but more than that I love the story that goes along with this set.
Photographer Jennifer Williams explained: The highlight of the shoot has got to be being pulled over by the Kern County Sheriff! Heather and I took a few shots at a bridge. Little did we know what a scene it would cause. When I left Heather sitting at the bridge while I went to get the car (her shoes were cute but not so comfortable) people called in reporting a suicidal bride getting ready to jump! Lucky for me, the sheriff thought it was really funny. When I explained we were doing a photo shoot, and there was not a run away bride wasn’t about to jump off the bridge, he sent us on our way.
What you’ll probably first notice about this set (apart from the Bride’s wicked tattoo and the wedding’s cute daisy theme) is that the photography is a little different. Photographer Katie Malone uses a variety of techniques to make her work stand out from the crowd.
First we have the Holga images, an inexpensive ‘toy’ camera that produces distorted and low-fidelity images. The effect is dramatic light leaks (the red intrusions) blurs and vignetting (the soft dark edged images). She accompanies this with the use of infra-red (in black and white and with complete colour washes) and TTV (Through the Viewfinder) images. The latter looks a little like a Polaroid and produce a vintage looking, square image with a dark black border.
These techniques aren’t for everyone, but I’m sure any Rock n Roll Bride can appreciate the originality and quirkiness of the result.
