Manga Madness

Lucky Monica & Peter had two wedding days. First up they had a simple and intimate ceremony at City Hall NYC with just close friends and family, followed a few days later by a reception at Tribeca Grand Hotel and a super funky evening party at the uber cool Japanese-neon-pop culture-manga- inspired Tokyo Bar (erm hello I need to go here!) with about 60 guests.

Vintage Vegas

I’ve never been to Vegas and I’m not all together convinced I’d like the craziness, but when I see images like these I know it can’t be just one big city of sin. According to photographer Maria Mack, Las Vegas doesn’t have to be all bright lights, strippers, gambling and bachelor parties.

These beautiful, retro shots show Vegas in a much softer light, – one with cute heart signs and quirky vintage touches. Oh yes, this is a Vegas I could get on board with…

Thanks to Maria for showing me the diversity of a Las Vegas photo shoot!

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!

Rock On – The Engagements

I was forwarded Danielle & Jerry’s wedding by the lovely Amanda of Vintage Glam. I saw it and I loved it. I also discovered their rocking engagement session so I had to feature these first.  Danielle’s cute little hair bow, their awesome tattoos (do I sound like a broken record sometimes?) and the almost spooky fun fair location – I love it all.

Stand by for the wedding, complete with a Groomsman with a mohawk and a Bride in a black wedding dress.
