The Shoot That Almost Never Was

Suzy & Gerard actually got married in 2005 but still wanted a day (years!?) after shoot with the amazingly talented Megan Welker– well who wouldn’t! They almost had a disaster with the dress however as after Suzy got it back from the cleaners she discovered they had taken out all of the puckers making those stunning billowy pleats,OMG cricis!! Luckily they knew a fabulous seamstress who painstakingly put them all back in for the shoot. It almost never happened and that would have been a travesty!

Swoon

Oh swoon! This day after session by the wonderful Stacy Able makes my heart go a-flutter. The shoot took place at the Indianapolis Museum of Art which made for a stunning backdrop – I especially adore the ‘LOVE’ statue which apparently was all ‘gross and rusted out’ but it looks fab to me!

Thanks to Stacy for the exclusive and tagging for naming this post on her own blog as Rock n Roll Bride approved!

Days Gone By

Emma & Chris had their engagement shoot at home with the french bulldog Colby for company. Chris’ sister photographed them using film and digital to get these great shots.  I have had such a resurgence of love for film photography recently, I am loving reliving days gone by with the gorgeousness of real film photography so these are right up my street. Don’t this look like they are literally living in the 1970’s? I ♥  it!

Thanks to Emma & Chris for sending me these gorgoeus shots and I can’t wait to see their wedding photographs (which will be captured by the wonderful Katherine O’Brien)

Rock n Roll Railroad

Diane Sage of Sage Studios Photography sent me this great photo shoot, and explained what being ‘rock n roll’ means to her. A pretty perfect description I’d say!

When I think of a “rock and roll” wedding or photo shoot, I think of how the people in the photographs are.  They look good, they rock it behind the camera and overall the feel of the images stand out. 

She also went on to discribe her ideas behind this stand out session…

This particular shoot was done to just spend the day having fun with a past bride. Liz and her husband Caleb got married in September 2008 but I asked her to come back and throw her gown back on so we could get these vintage feeling photographs.  Liz wore her fabulous dress and we added the funky neck pieces as well as some vintage luggage and brought her up to the tracks for some fun photographs. I didn’t go with the traditional bouquet, instead opting for these vintage feeling neck pieces that I think are really quite beautiful.  Liz wore her hair down with no veil to add to the casual feel of the shoot.

On another note, I am also a huge fan of Liz’s dress, I’m pretty sure it’s by Maggie Sottero and that I tried it on when I was looking for my own wedding dress.

Thanks Diane – I can’t wait for you to send me more!

Vintage In Style

Oh OK then..another one from The Nichols!

Not only are the photographs ridiculously gorgeous, but the couple are just as ridiculously stylish. Lindsey’s green dress and veil combo are just a little hint of bridal with out being overly so, and Jarreux has definitely got that JT hat/smart suit combo down to a T!

…and that red bag, and that belt, and the vintage suitcase…too.much.style!

Gothic Woodland

I just got back from meeting out wedding photography competition winners with my friend and photographer David McNeil. Vana & Damien are even cooler in real life than they are on paper. We got on like a house on fire and spent about 2 hours chatting non-stop! I will blog all about it later (including photographs) but I just want to share some gorgeous gothic inspiration with you first (as always, too many gorgeous images to share not enough time!) Get a load of these….

The gorgeous veil was supplied by Unveiled Bridal Designs
