Offbeat & Alternative Floral Inspiration

“We had the idea for a Rock n Roll themed stylized wedding shoot and one of our former client was perfect for it!” explained photographer Jessica. “MJ is a local tattoo artist and amazing painter. We set up in an apple orchard on a fall day and had a mix of vintage glass, flowers, instruments and an old radio from the 1930’s. The shoot was styled by our assistant and partner-in-crime Brooke Biette and flowers were provided by the amazing Judy Bourgeois of Flora Fauna. The bottom of the bouquet even had a record that was melted down to go around it.”

“The couple began the shoot in a vintage wedding dress and suit in the orchard and as it got darker their craziness came out and they changed into a long black dress and black tux with chain belt and red sneakers.  They were rocking the poses too!”

The Bright Blue House

 The colour and fun of this stunning wedding really made me smile – oh and isn’t Aubrey, the bride, totally hot too?! I adore her cuuute short dress and birdcage veil combo. The shots of the wedding party in front of the blue house are also too fabulous for words – they make me want a bright blue house…actually strike that – it is of course a bright pink house that I want!

Old Hollywood, Mexican Punk Rock!

Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920’s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it.  It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history.  It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”

Vast.

There is something a little bit spooky about this day after session and I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is…maybe it’s the dark lipstick vs the pale skin (very stylish don’t ya know!?) or maybe it’s the vast and slightly creepy abandoned location. Either way my inner goth freakin’ loves them!

For The Love

I’m pretty sure that Gwen & Joel are secretly models because no regular couple are this adorably photogenic right? I can’t really say what it is I love about these – because it’s everything!

Thanks to the wonderful Lizelle for sharing these with me

Downtown Detroit

This engagement session send in by Melissa of A Girl in Love (quite possibly one of my favourite company names ever) is true rock n roll royalty. This couple have got that effortless cool thing going on…and I’m jealous! I can’t wait to see their wedding and I’ve made Melissa promise to send them my way first!

Melissa described the day…
I had no idea that I was shooting two actual rock and rollers, but  within minutes of starting out engagement session I asked Grace if  she’d modeled and both her and her husband to be cracked up, no they  said, but she used to be in a band.  Both of them actually.  We shot  downtown Detroit, right where they used to rock and now they roll in  love and getting married in just a few months.  Even ended the session  at the Motown Museum
