Italian Style – The Punk of Wedding Photography

I was sent a collection of bridal fashion shoots from Italian photographer Joanne Dunn the other day and I have to say I fell in love immediately.  She describes her work as “personal fusion photography—the punk of wedding photography”, and boy can I see why. These chicks are certainly Rock n Roll baby! 

The Italians are notoriously painfully stylish and ahead of the game and these shots definitely prove that to me – the black and white palate, the crimped hair, the tiered dress  – all scream high fashion bridal style for 2010.

Edit: the stunning dresses were made by local (Italian) dressmaker Giovanna Albano who can be contacted on 0039 081961898 or 0039 335 8004824

Winter Warmers & DIY to Die For

This brand spanking new wedding was sent to me by the fabulous Andana Lima. I fell in love with bride’s beehive, her faux fur coat and all the DIY projects involved in making their day elegant and personal.

The DIY projects behind this wedding included the bouquet made out of black and white fabric, the boutonnieres for the groomsman and mother of the bride, the monograms, the wishbook and all the centerpieces and table decorations. Courtney also added her own beads to underneath her shoes. The custom flops were made by J*Flops.

Rockin’ Kicks & Fashion to Love

Paul & Jess’ wedding was a stylish affair of rockin’ proportions. They both looked every bit the Rock n Roll couple for their Spring Lake, New Jersey nuptials…with a little help from their friends & families! Jess explains:

When we decided to keep our anniversary as our official wedding date we were just about mid-stride in working on the party at the Breakers.  I have to admit that planning for the first ceremony was pretty far from my mind.  Paul and I chose our wardrobe based basically on matching each other like we do all the time.  I bought a really beautiful black/tan dress, red shoes from shoes.com and Paul picked up a tie to match his black & tan Nike SBs from Richmond Hood. We figured we had the whole thing in the bag.

Rockin’ Kicks & Fashion to Love

👰

Paul & Jess' wedding was a stylish affair of rockin' proportions. They both looked every bit the Rock n Roll couple...with a little help from their friends & families! Jess explains: When we decided to keep our anniversary as our official wedding date we were just about mid-stride in working on the party at the Breakers. I have to admit that planning for the first ceremony was pretty far from my mind. Paul and I chose our wardrobe based basically on matching each other like we do all the time. I bought a really beautiful black/tan dress, red shoes from shoes.com and Paul picked up a tie to match his black & tan Nike SBs from Richmond Hood. We figured we had the whole thing in the bag. On the eighth, before heading over to Nana’s house to kick the party off, I went to the salon to have Khrystyne and Lisa get me, my mom, and my sister ready for the picture frenzy. I kept getting told by my mother that there was a ‘really great’ surprise at Nana’s and that she hoped I would like it. Nerve-racking words if spoken by absolutely anyone but my mother. I knew that if she and my sister had something to do with the surprise that I would certainly like it. Khrystyne finished up my hair and Erica proceeded to do my makeup in the back of the salon. In snuck my mother just about at the final touches of my makeup. She said that she had another surprise and was quite concerned that I wouldn’t like it. Not exactly what the bride wants to hear with only minutes before leaving for the ceremony. I asked her to show me this surprise of hers. Turns out, not only did I ‘like’ it… I absolutely loved it! Mom and Erica had spent all morning running back and forth to the Monmouth Mall. When Mommy’s friend Joanne had set Nana’s house up for our ceremony (the original surprise), it looked so much like a chapel that my mom decided a black dress would look very out of place in pictures. I could not have been happier that they took control of the situation without my help. They picked an absolutely splendid wedding dress. I couldn’t believe how well it fit and how incredibly wonderful it felt to wear white after all. Thanks go to Mom, Erica, and Jessica McClintock! Thanks to Brad, Paul & Jess for sharing their day with us.

Cures What Ails Me

Some call it madness, many call it obsession but when I see images like these I just have to blog them right away! Can I tell you, last night I went out with the girls for sushi and cocktails and I woke up fresh as a daisy at 8am ridiculously excited about sharing Steph & Ryan’s wedding, sent to me by the ever darling Kelty of Steep Street. Yep. I is crazy indeed.
