As soon as these images landed in my inbox early this morning I was desperate to blog them right away! First off the couple are ridiculously beautiful (but that, of course, goes without saying), secondly I have never seen such a gorgeous set of images where it is just the two of them, no barriers, no props, just the newlyweds being themselves. In fact I’m not even sure I’ve ever seen an ‘in bed’ style shoot used as part of a day after session. I love it. The photographs are so intimate and so personal yet done in such as way that there is no element of sleaze…I don’t even feel voyeuristic looking at them They really are just art. Art and love.
We then move onto the bulk of the shoot, where living in Odessa, Texas (a place where there is apparently ‘nothing ‘) doesn’t seem to have made these images anything less than breathtaking. The train, the graffiti, the river, the tree. The gorgeously intimate style continues only this time with a back drop that tantalises the senses all by itself.
If this isn’t enough for you, then be sure to check out the couple’s wedding too!
A huge thank you to Chelsea for sending me these exclusive shots (oh yes, exclusives make me happy!)

Do you remember Jen & Grant’s McEngagements? Well the couple went and got married and there was no Mcdonalds in sight.
Jen & Grant cleverly integrated the color blue as a tribute to grant’s favorite team duke as well as tying in a playstation theme (see cufflinks below), and left plenty of room for her obsession with skulls. the hampshire house wedding venue was transformed for jen and grant’s dream wedding. for the ceremony, grant’s best man served as the officiant by becoming a JP for a day, by getting his one-day marriage designation in the state of massachusetts. they had one of the coolest sets of bridesmaids and groomsmen i’ve worked with. after the ceremony, the newlyweds allocated a bit of extra time beyond traditional formal photographs to allow for some creative portraits walking around downtown boston in the boston public garden and an MBTA subway station. at the reception, DJ addam bomb provided music that had everyone on the dancefloor, including jen’s 86 year old grandfather rocking out to billy idol’s “white wedding.” if you are having a boston wedding and are looking for a DJ that can throw down great alternative music, yet still has a tasteful demeanor, this is your guy.
Thanks to photographer, Heather Parker for sharing this cool blue wedding!

Good morning sunshine! Blimey it’s a scorcher here in England today…I am sweating away as I blog (nice!) Let’s get this party started shall we?
Julia & Neil got married a year ago but were never happy with their wedding photographs. They enlisted the help of a dream team of photographer Lauri Levenfeld of Zoom Photography, make up artist Stacy McClure and hair stylist Maria O’Rilley to finally give them the photographs they wanted on their one year anniversary…and oh did they! From the train station, to the graffiti wall and the beach to Chinatown – this whole shoot is pure San Fran cool.
