When You’ve Got A (New York) Minute…

New Yorker David M had the oppotunity to shoot a gorgeous Polish couple on his home turf. He explains:
My dear friend Adam Ludwik has spent over a month visiting America for the first time. He is one of Poland’s best wedding photographers. You can see his work at his website and blog Right before he left to photograph another lucky couple on Polish ground I had a chance to shoot his clients Agata and Alfonso right here – in our old good New York. We have visited a few very familiar locations and tried to put a new spin on them.

As always, thanks to David for sharing these stunning images and speaking of New York, have you voted yet for your favourite’s to win the ‘we fell in love in NYC’ contest yet? Boy, is it hotting up over there!

A Day In The Life

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!)

Water Baby

As trash the dress goes, it doesn’t get much better than getting in some water and thrashing about in your gown. Yes, it’s been done and we’ve seen it all before but who cares? You’ll have a hell lot of fun and get some awesome photographs to boot!

Thanks to the ever so gorgeous Tab for sharing this session. Mwah!

Two Years Later…

Blaine & Shanni didn’t have a day after shoot, but after two years of marriage decided it was about time to do so and who better to shoot them but Shanni herself – she is after all the most rock n roll photographer they know. The couple love to go for Sunday drives and Shanni had always wanted to shoot a couple at this dried up riverbed,  so why not us?! she told me – why not indeed.

Holga Love

I am really feeling the Holga love right now and when I saw these I knew I had to feature them as soon as possible. Shooting a wedding with a toy camera must be a precarious and slightly unnerving job (what if the film doesn’t load? what if the photos turn out badly? what if I loose the film? eeek!) but photographer Daniel Krieger appears to have got his skillZ down and pulled this one off seemingly without a hitch. These images are just making me even more excited about getting my very own piece of plastic joy soon..ahh the light, the texture, the soft focus – swoon!

Daniela & Chris got married at the ridiculously stunning Mohonk Mountain House. Have you ever seen a location so picturesque? Daniela’s beautiful dress is the Fontaine wedding gown from J Crew and she is actually selling it right now on Craigslist. It’s a size 4 and you may well be able to snap it up for yourself (if you’re quick!) you lucky lucky things.

Daniela has also shared a few little tips of her own:
Enjoy every minute and roll with it. The quirks of your wedding are what will make the memories that much better. On our day, it was so cold that the ipod playing the bridal march (dum, dum, da dum) froze (literally!) and the audience had to hum the music. Couldn’t have asked for anything better!!

Thanks so much to the brilliant Daniel Krieger for the photography, and the couple Daniela & Chris for allowing me to share their day.
