Bridesmaid Bummer

FYI: This post is sort of not safe for work unless if looking at backsides all day is acceptable and/or not really frowned upon. You never know, but just a friendly warning. BUM2

If you’re getting married in the foreseeable future, have you chosen your bridesmaids yet? Be sure to choose wisely, there are a couple considerations to take into account who are your closest female friends who would be willing to help you hold your dress when you need to pee, who will let you be a diva when necessary but who will kick you back into place when you’re being unnecessarily diva-like and most importantly who can drop it like its hot and squats until their bum is rock hard. You may think I’ve lost the plot, but you see if you spend as much time as me on the internet you will see that left, right and centre everyone is sharing this new trend of the bridesmaids (and sometimes the bride) hiking their dresses up for a “fun” shot in a Charlie’s Angels-esque posed photograph.

MY WEDDING DAY – SERVICE PROVIDERS – part 2, THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Hey there! So I hope you enjoyed my previous post on my wedding day about my wedding dress and where I got it. If not, please check it out wedding dress

Post 2, is all about the photographer. Christopher Munton. Actually, he isn’t a photographer, think of him as an artist.

I personally can’t stand cheesy wedding photos one sees these days. And sometimes it is the photographers that just are inexperienced. If you’re planning a wedding, I suggest you pay for a good photographer. Photos are what you end up with to remember the day forever. Not the shoes, not your perfume, or the amount of people you invited. So if you’re going to settle for a cheap photographer with a cliche portfolio, then that is what you’ll end up with…

The venue I chose sent me a list of suggested suppliers of photographers, musicians, makeup artists etc. Scrolling through the lists, Christopher’s work definitely stood out! It wasn’t normal wedding photos. It was art!

FAQS

So if you’re planning your own wedding and you’re in need of the best photographer, please contact Emily and or Christopher. You will not be disappointed! I must say, he is also such a great person! You feel totally comfortable with him. He captures the most wonderful moments without being all up in your face. Chilled and relaxed is how I felt. I feel that the mood of the photographer can set the mood of the bride as he is there while she is getting ready. So if he can relax you, you’ll be way more calm walking into the chapel. So this is a thank you to Christopher. Thank you for bring a brilliant artist.

New Wedding Trend : Sexy or Strange?

Hiya Poutlings!

There is a new trend in wedding photography. Do you think your actual wedding ceremony was not quite sexy enough, too formal, too classic? Do you want to add a spice to your photographs to brag about how sexy your wedding night actually was?

Well, look no further than “Morning After” wedding shots. Taken hours or days after a couple gets married, this new exhibitionist trend is aimed at showing how spicy new marriage can be.

A photographer from New Jersey, Michelle Jonne told the The New York Daily News:

I wanted to do the shoots to show that [marriage] is happy … it’s sexy and it’s not over, he minute she told me, I thought ‘that is brilliant.’ When you get married, you’re in the best shape of your life and why not have these memories

She went on to say that her client and her new husband agrees who are pictured in the steamy shower scene. Her client intends to share these photos on Facebook and someday show the couples kids.

I’m all for sexy couple shoots, I’ve photographed a few myself. There is something special about intamacy of a couple, but I believe a lot should be left unseen as itis better left to the imagination.

Can you imagine this:

LOOK MUM AND DAD… THIS IS WHAT WE DID THE NIGHT BEFORE WE LEFT FOR OUR HONEYMOON!

hahaha

 

Your thoughts?
