Punk Rockabilly Bridal Shoot

You are going to explode with excitement over this incredible bridal shoot…I did! Just brace yourselves for some serious awesome.

The shoot was put together by Denver based This Modern Life Photo to inspire brides to think outside the box with their bridal shoots…and boy have they done that!? The team were keen to tell me all about their vision:

“Brides, we can create a custom styled shoot like this one for you and your fiance or husband either before or after the wedding using the same creative team. Not into Rock and Roll styling? Not a problem. Our team will  work with you to create your very own vision, romantic and dreamy?, vintagey and funky?, rustic natural? Whatever your heart desires, this creative team can create!”

Buddy Holly & Mother Nature

Amy & Nick’s wonderful South Austin wedding had a distinct and very individual theme – perfect for them! Big fans of Buddy Holly and late 50’s/early 60’s music, it was important to them to really have that as a big part of their wedding. Amy walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of Every Day played live by a friend on the guitar. Nick waited to marry his sweetheart decked out in a grey suit, Buddy Holly glasses and his favorite pair of Converse. Amy wore a dress by Dolly Couture which was perfectly accented by a Magnolia flower created by Amy Barber of Sweettooth Bags.

Coney Island Cool

I think I need to move to New York. All the cool kids are moving there – including the photographer behind this fabulous engagement session, Lindsey McKinley. The tattoos (of course) the radical yellow bow/net thingy, the long haired groom to be and the Coney Island setting convince me at NYC is definitely optimisation of cool.

Under the Spotlight – Jordan McLachlan

JMCL_portrait_003

I’ve got a true Rock n Roll photographer to share with you today! Jordan McLachlan’s music business background certainly gives him the credentials worthy of shooting your Rock n Roll wedding. “I’ve worked in the music industry for more than 10 years as magazine writer/editor and photographer,” he told me “Plus I’ve run a PR/marketing agency looking after music clients. So over the years I’ve written for most of the big specialist titles like Guitarist, Total Guitar and Rhythm magazines (I still do odd bits for Rhythm – the most recent interview is a cover with Dominic Howard from Muse that hits the shelves next month).”

With the gorgeous texture and tone, and the subtle, muted hues throughout his documentary styled images, there’s certainly a lot more than guitar riffs behind Jordan McLachlan.  Let’s get on with learning more about the man behind the music shall we?

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Jordan McLachlan and I’m a photographer. One of the things I do is slightly quirky-but-pretty documentary wedding photography.

Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?

I live on the Essex/Herts border about an hour from London. So London, East Anglia and the South-East are on the doorstep, but I love to travel …

At Home with Hannah & Ali – An Engagement with a Difference

I wanted to try my damnedest to avoid sounding like some kinda of dumb jock as I wrote this but I think it is inevitable. When you see these you’ll understand me saying “Duuuuue these freakin’ RULE!”

Hannah & Ali chose to have their engagement session at home – and when you’ve got a house as intriguing and filled to the rafters with so many individual and quirky touches then why wouldn’t you? Plus the pussy cats got to play too and that’s always a good thing.

ps the photos after the jump have some serious sexiness going on and may not be safe for work

A Shoot to Remember

Unable to shoot her cousin's wedding, Lauri of Zoom Photography decided to give Kaya & Jon a day after shoot to remember! Kaya and Jon are a true meeting of the minds. She works in advertising and he in finance, living in their Chicago loft, mostly run by their pug Chloe and bulldog Sebastian. Jon's passionate love of music is apparent from the moment you meet him, his inspired word choice, verbose nature and unsurpassed loyalty also make an immediate impression. Kaya’s extroverted and vivacious qualities, coupled with her caring and generous nature make her noticeably standout in a room full of loud and boisterous people. Just four years ago, there was Jon making another brilliant decision before the blaring juke box at Pint, a Chicago bar. But, instead of steering to his old faithful albums in peace, his decision was abruptly challenged. A sassy, slightly rude girl leaned up against him as she uttered "don't play anything BAD". Little did she know, Jon's musical choices were never bad, but he did enjoy a challenge. Three years later they travelled through Europe, and Jon proposed in Poland, where Kaya was born. Pledging his life to her on the very soil where her life had begun, Jon asked that she spend spend the rest of her life with him. On September 26th, standing before all of their friends and family, they were married overlooking Lake Michigan, at the John G. Shedd Aquarium, downtown Chicago. In true family style, Kaya walked down the aisle with her great grandmother's necklace, her grandfather's WWII patch sewn into her dress, and her new mother-in law's sapphire ring, for a touch of something blue! The wedding colors were inspired by the aquarium, cool celadon greens, and dark emeralds; centerpieces accented with coral and branches borrowed from nature. The bride and groom chose to pass on wedding favors, in order to make a donation to their furry friends at the Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago.

Let’s Rock!

👰

Today I'm going to share a bunch of wedding that quite simply put..ROCK! You'll know why when you see them. Starting off with guitars, grunge bands and Rocky! The bride, Lizzie told me all: The overall theme of our wedding was our favorite music. Rich and I both love music and we both play guitar. I play guitar and he plays the drums. So I was really important to me anyway to incorporate our insane obsession for music as well as keeping it traditional for our family who were providing the funds. However although our wedding was 2 years ago and unfortuantly your site wasn't around to get awesome ideas from I think we did a pretty good job. We did not have a guestbook, people signed a guitar which also happened to be blue & brown which was our wedding colors. In one of the pictures attached one of my BM is carring it into the reception. Our card box was a floor tom with a hole cut into the drum head. Our tables where named after our favorite bands, Hole, Nirvana, Babes in Toyland, patti Smith just to name a few. Our favor was a CD of our favorite love songs, Love Buzz - Nirvana - Good GOod Things- The Desendants - Because the Night - Patti Smith. Again just to name a few. Our Bridal Party when they got annoced to the reception all came in carrying guitars and walked in to Breed by Nirvana. They all acted out a rock n roll clique by smashing a guitar and etc. My cake was Blue with huge polka dots which is just cool in itself if you ask me. We went to Philly to get our picture take the Rocky Statue and I have a lot of really cool pictures from that also. Thanks to Lizzie & Richie for sharing their Rock n Roll perfect day with us!

From the sparrow salt & pepper shakers as a cake topper and succulents as centrepieces to the their customised ‘lunchboxes’ by Pink Avocado..oh yes yes yes! Shelly’s beautiful dress was by Linda Asaf and I love it all!

Just Delicious

Amy & Lance are just awesome. Can you believe Amy actually made her hairpiece and shoes…and guess what? She runs her own Etsy store so you could even get something similar yourself. I am also a little bit obsessed with the red velvet sofa and the bright red apple…good enough to eat…literally!
