Punk Rock

I have a cocktail induced sore head today so posting may be lighter and/or make no sense today. I am struggling to string a sentence together…
This shoot by Kelly Moore kind of made my head hurt even more due to all the brightness but I love it too much not to post. Of course there is no relation to weddings at all within this shoot, but it’s so pretty it’s worth a mini deviation.

Magical Meghan

Yep, Meghan’s trash the dress/bridal shoot pretty much rocks. I have a lot of ♥ for the night time set – especially the ‘will marry for food’ ones.

She actually had the session over a year after she married JP because she really wanted to do something a bit more ‘outthere’ in her dress (which is gorgeous by the way and made by Demetrios.)

Her natural skills and comfort in front of the camera combined with her glorious wedding dress and awesome personality made for one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve ever done. We started out in downtown SD on the prowl for some graffiti, we lucked out when we found an old parking lot with a sweet car and bright graffiti. She was willing to try whatever we suggested with a smile on her face the entire time (like hold a sign on the side of the freeway…..Meghan, did I mention I love you? It’s true).  After downtown, we went to Ruby’s Diner where her and JP had their first date…..I remember walking through the mall where everyone was staring at us, and I ask Meghan, “do you feel uncomfortable with all these people staring and pointing?” her answer? “I LOVE IT!” Which made me love her. After Ruby’s we headed to our house for some night shots, where Meghan displayed her magical powers (check out the last picture and you’ll totally understand). Meghan and JP, we had such a great time with you and I can’t wait until we hang out again very soon. In the meantime, I’ll be watching for you on America’s Next Top Model!!!!!

Thanks to Rachel for sharing these – more from Studio Castillero to come soon!

Topsy Turvy Bridal Shoot

After the great response both here and on my twitter to Melissa & Phil’s fabulous ‘Day of the Dead’ wedding, I thought it only right to share Melissa’s amazing bridal shoot too. She is wearing her Maggie Sottero dress and Topsy Turvy Designs little top hat again of course. This girl is one serious hottie right?

Circus Act Of Colour

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.

Suicidal Bride!?

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.
