Liz & TJ’s engagement session and silent movie inspired video are simply perfect. The couple met in a tattoo parlour and so getting a tattoo together as part of their engagement session is both appropriate and awesome.
Plus The Exorcist is arguably the most controversial movie ever (or it was in it’s day) and the second part of their shoot took place on those famous steps…
Enjoy! (and make sure you watch the rad-as-hell video too)
Shelby & Bliss wanted their engagement shoot to take place in a tattoo parlour because Bliss is tattoo mad! “The inspiration for the shoot came mostly from Bliss’s amazing tattoos,” Shelby told me. “The tattoo parlor we shot in is where he gets his tattoo’s done. When I was in there with him we thought how cool it would be to do our engagment session in the parlor. We love the “Sailor Jerry” feel of the shop and decided to capture that between the two of us. Our photographer Jeremiah did an amazing job capturing it all! We love him and we love the pictures!”
Shelby wore a dress from Unique Vintage.
Do you remember Mr & Mrs Tattooboy? The hot tattooed couple behind one of my favourite ever engagement sessions? Well check it out – they got hitched and I’ve got the exclusive blogging rights on their killer wedding. When the couple first met, Kori was a cheerleader and Matt was a rocker and a tattooed artist. They soon fell in love and Kori starting getting just as much ink as her man!
“Kori & Matt’s aka Mr. & Mrs. Tattooboy, have this incredible rockabilly style & then some!!!” photographer Christina told me. “When I asked Kori about the details of her wedding she just told me she wanted it to be different from the normal-cheesy-blah type weddings, this made me really happy that she wasn’t giving in to what everyone else in the world was doing! Their unusual story & love for tattoos & rockabilly style was inspiration enough for these two lovers to plan their wedding.”
“They knew they wanted their wedding to have a little of that rockabilly feel mixed with a bit of Hollywood glam, but they wanted to keep it simple. Kori told me that she loved antiques & wanted a retro/vintagey style wedding & they purely got most of their inspiration from the things that they love!”
“They took their vintage inspiration to the next level when they chose that amazing museum venue,” continued Christina. “They were married at Matt’s family church, but they did all of other festivities at the Kern County Museum which has many old antique houses/buildings from the early 1900’s. And if they already didn’t have enough color with their amazing tattoos, they held their reception among these incredible old neon signs. These two high school sweethearts & their rocker edge were screaming Rock n Roll Bride from the moment I met them.”
The bride wore a dress from Enchanted Bridal, which she accessorised herself by adding the red & black tulle. She also wore fishnet stockings and totally rad boots Hot Topic. The groom wore his favourite hat and decided that instead of a traditional guest book they would ask guests to sign a skateboard.
