Soul Mates

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!”

The Bike, The Pinata & The Purple Monkey

I have so much to say about this awesome engagement shoot that I almost don’t know where to start…maybe the beginning? Photographer Thomas has pretty much hit the jackpot with Bobbi & Shelby – gorgeous, cool, tattooed, individual, up for it – what more could you want?

The couple came up with the ideas for this shoot themselves starting with a seedy motel scene, the setting is right out of a 70’s road trip movie complete with peeling paint, a broken television and retro signage. They then headed out, firstly to a junkyard and then to a field where they lay around looking gorgeous and had some fun on a bike…with a pinata (of course!)

Following this came the grand finale. Inspired by the now iconic Tanja Lippert ‘Chicken and the Naked Chick’ engagement shoot, Shelby donned a giant purple monkey suit and Bobbi well..got naked! Love love love….I just adore these.
