Engagement(ish) Session: Crystal and Jason

Okay. I’ll confess it now. This isn’t technically an engagement session. Rather, the couple, Crystal and Jason, hired Sarah Rhoads to do a lifestyle session for their blog and website, Ella Blue Studio. But that’s neither here nor there. This may as well be an engagement session…and pretty much the sweetest vintage inspired one I’ve ever seen. Hold onto your hats and glasses folks….

There are SO many more unbelievably lovely photos, so if you’d like to see more, check out the entire portrait session here. Special thanks to the incredibly talented Sarah, who allowed me to share these photos with you.

Go therefore and have a creative engagement session!

Engagement Session: Sunny and Eddie

This engagement session is particularly adorable because the couple is having a carnival themed wedding next month, so they ran with the idea and chose to reflect the carnival look in their engagement photos as well. OH SO CUTE! Photographer Youkeun Oh sent these over and I can’t tell you how excited I am to share them with you.

Giveaway Extravaganza!

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this fantastic giveaway. The unbelievably talented photographer Cynthia Spivack would like to offer the winner of our contest a free photo shoot, which can be used for an engagement session, family shoot, baby shoot….you name it! I’ve put together a collage of her family photography for you to feast your eyes on. Cynthia specializes in family photography (which has to be so hard…how does she get those wiley kids to look good on camera?) but loves couples as well!

If you think you’d like to win a free session with Cynthia (and after seeing these images, I don’t know who wouldn’t) then you’ll most definitely want to enter.

Here are the giveaway rules:

  • You can enter once per day PER GREY BLOG. Visit Grey Likes Baby and Grey Likes Nesting to enter again!
  • You must live in the SoCal area or be willing to travel to it. (Or you can give the free session to someone you love who does!)
  • You must use the session before the end of 2009.
  • To enter, simply leave a comment and tell us about one of your favorite photos by Cynthia.
  • Entry is closed at midnight, next Wednesday. We’ll announce the winner on Thursday.

GOOD LUCK!

Engagement Shoot+Floral Props

I love that this couple used floral props (by Flowerwild) in their engagement shoot. How cute are these photos by Bonnie Tsang?

Speaking of Vintage Cameras…

My good friend Michael Norwood of MNP Photography gave me permission to share some of his recent polaroid snapshots. Wow! I’m totally in love with the vintage feel of these and I’ve gotta say: I love photographers like Michael who offer such versatility to his clients. Polaroids AND digital? Check please!

Vintage Cameras

Today on Grey Likes Nesting, we’re all about vintage cameras:

This one already sold since my post this morning.

But I also found this dazzling little 8mm number and it got me thinking…

il_430xn649362131

…about using Super 8mm film for wedding videos. (I know it’s not a new concept…but I wanted to share my love for real film videos!) So I got onto the interwebs, and searched and searched and searched. I wanted to find a video that had just the right vintage feel. And I believe I’ve found it. If I were to style an 8mm shoot for myself, it’d look a lot like this:

For information about videographers that shoot in 8mm film, check out Vintage Glam Weddings for a few great referrals.

Happy MONDAY!

Real Wedding: Malin and James

Please forgive me if you’ve already seen this wedding circling the blogosphere. I, for one, have not. For those of you that don’t already stalk Jose Villa’s blog, I suppose after viewing shots from this wedding at the Viceroy in Palm Springs, you will.
