This make me happy. The photos are of course stunning, with their neo-realism kinda feel – the stark white backdrop and her pale skin vs the dark gothic lipstick is just beautiful. But what I really love is the vintage feeling video – just taken on a cheap video camera. The effect is magical.
Oh. My. GOD!
This hippy chic, picnic stylee wedding with a woodstock vibe is nothing short of phenomenal. Finding amazing hidden gems like this has got to be one of my favourite things to do. I feel as though I have unearthed a complete treasure.
Forget everything you think you know about weddings. This celebration makes all that seem futile. Can you imagine being there? Cramming into a tiny tent, siting on your friends laps or on the floor just to see your best friend’s get married. She’s wearing a stunning vintage gown (which the little girls all clearly adore!) and he’s wearing a fabulously retro velvet suit. And the car…and the swing…and the random panda head…oooh oooh oooooh!
I want to go and run around a field like a child and celebrate the joy of love right now…
As photographers, Emmy & Aaron are more comfortable being behind the camera then in front, but for their one year anniversary (this week!) they decided they deserved some gorgeous photographs of their own!
Emmy told me the whole story:
When we took a little anniversary trip to a cabin on Cowichan Lake (Vancouver Island BC Canada) I pulled my dress, by Demetrios, out of the closet and took it with us. We had a great little cabin on the beach and there were some other perfectly decayed old buildings on the property including this great lime green shed. The owner expressed some concern that we were making photos in front of “the biggest eyesore on the property”. I think that old shed is perfect!. We met over a conversation about our shared love of photography. Pretty soon we also loved each other and now we love making photographs together. We can’t believe how lucky we are that we found each other and that we both have the same passion. I don’t let him shoot me that often – I like being behind the camera as much as he does – but putting that dress on tends to let you become somebody else for a while. Doesn’t hurt that its my hot hubby behind the camera! Everyone should do this on their anniversary – let those dresses out of the closet girls you look fabulous in them and they want to be seen! You don’t have to be a photographer just head out and have some fun! I LOVE my dress and it was soooo much fun wearing it again!!
