Thrift Store Find

A few months ago, photographer Jennifer Williams’ sister found this gorgeous vintage dress in a thrift store for $10. Being the helpful sibling that she is, she knew it would be perfect for a photo shoot and so bought it right away. Jen went on to tell me the whole story:

The minute I saw it I couldn’t wait to plan a shoot centered around it! I
couldn’t get those old images of Bonnie and Clyde out of my head from the
old 1967 movie. Most of my inspiration was centered around that, although
I mixed and matched decades into my own take on vintage fashion. Then I
found out we had permission to shoot at this salvage yard and the shoot
became this beautiful classy take on grunge. As weird as it sounds, that
is the best way I can describe it.

Phenomenal.

I don’t think anybody could dispute that Heather & Grayson of Jagger Photography are ones to watch. Their outdoor portraits are simply phenomenal! Do you remember Maurice & Tasha’s amazing balloon filled (oh yes!) desert day after session? Well I couldn’t say for sure, but I’m included to suggest that Cooper & Michelle’s engagements are even better! Thoughts…?

Thanks to the lovely Heather for sending these images!

A Day In The Life

As soon as these images landed in my inbox early this morning I was desperate to blog them right away! First off the couple are ridiculously beautiful (but that, of course, goes without saying), secondly I have never seen such a gorgeous set of images where it is just the two of them, no barriers, no props, just the newlyweds being themselves. In fact I’m not even sure I’ve ever seen an ‘in bed’ style shoot used as part of a day after session. I love it. The photographs are so intimate and so personal yet done in such as way that there is no element of sleaze…I don’t even feel voyeuristic looking at them They really are just art. Art and love. 

We then move onto the bulk of the shoot, where living in Odessa, Texas (a place where there is apparently ‘nothing ‘) doesn’t seem to have made these images anything less than breathtaking. The train, the graffiti, the river, the tree. The gorgeously intimate style continues only this time with a back drop that tantalises the senses all by itself.

If this isn’t enough for you, then be sure to check out the couple’s wedding too!

A huge thank you to Chelsea for sending me these exclusive shots (oh yes, exclusives make me happy!)
