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”
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!
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

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

I am dying to go to an Indian wedding one day, all the colour and drama..I love it! So when I found this Indian/Mexican wedding I know it’d be a good one! Both cultures bring such a sense of their own tradition to this wedding, from the Bride’s awesome custom dress (Namrita had a piece of her Mother’s gold and fuchsia wedding sari sown into the side of her one-of-a-kind gown) to the Mexican-inspired wrought-iron canopy over the dance floor.
This is a truly unique wedding and I love it!
Namrita’s dress was designed and customised by Renella De Fina and the wedding was coordinated by Oh How Charming.
