‘Nobody Can Be Uncheered By A Balloon’

I received the cutest and most excitable submission I have ever had the other day. Josephine Sicad is a Filipino girl living in Singapore who is just tipping her toes into the world of photography and where better to start that by shoot her and her (then) fiance’s engagement shoot (or pre nup as they call it over there.)
I’m sure she won’t mind but I have to share some of her excitement right here, just so you get the emotion behind the lens:
While browsing through your site, I get so giggly to share my own set,too. I happen to be my own photographer (the tripod-remote-timer-way) for my own engagement sessions. Teehee! Which is why I am just giggling to share it,too. My idea was a touch of vintagey and rustic feel to it which I always love love love. We did our photoshoots randomly to places we find great backdrops (the park and some rustic places) here in Singapore and yes, including my own bike. Weeehhh! I wanted it to be simple and yet so FULL of LOVE. We had these shots taken around June, while we just got happily married last July 28 and I am still working on my edits Hahaha. Sadly, I couldn’t be my own photographer for my wedding, you know I wish I could. Hahaha But I had amazing friends who helped me capture all the wonderful moments,too as it was just a 9 people wedding in fact. =)

I love these for the cute, playful joy – the experimentation of a new photographer finding her feet is totally alluring. Josephine even gives each image it’s only little intro – my favourite has got to be ‘Nobody Can Be Uncheered By A Balloon’ Check out her flickr for more.

I know there are great things ahead for the delightful Josephine and I can’t wait to see more of it!

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)

Standing Out From The Crowd

What you’ll probably first notice about this set (apart from the Bride’s wicked tattoo and the wedding’s cute daisy theme) is that the photography is a little different. Photographer Katie Malone uses a variety of techniques to make her work stand out from the crowd.

First we have the Holga images, an inexpensive ‘toy’ camera that produces distorted and low-fidelity images. The effect is dramatic light leaks (the red intrusions) blurs and vignetting (the soft dark edged images). She accompanies this with the use of infra-red (in black and white and with complete colour washes) and TTV (Through the Viewfinder) images. The latter looks a little like a Polaroid and produce a vintage looking, square image with a dark black border.

These techniques aren’t for everyone, but I’m sure any Rock n Roll Bride can appreciate the originality and quirkiness of the result.

Thanks to Katie for sharing…

Revival

Vintage cameras are all the rage right now. I’ve seen them used as props in various engagement and wedding day shoots. However, New Yorker Robert Christian Malmberg has taken it one step further, by reviving a photographic technique popular in the 19th Century.  He uses is own Bellows camera and ‘wet plate collodion’ to create the effect you see below.  His thinking is to make timeless images that contemporary Brides will love.

Thanks so much to Robert for sharing his gorgeous and totally unique images.

Vintage Gems

Is it just me, or do these photographs have a truly authentic feel? Like they literally could have been found in an attic somewhere..
