emilia & bill and our 60’s/french/new wave-inspired engagement session

  2. i love your photography. so inspiring.
    how do you get the effect that you use on your photos? it’s great!

  3. Just amazing. I know you’ve had a lot of publicity on this shoot already, but I only recently got the word via rock ‘n roll bride, and had to spread the love on my new blog. 🙂

    Can you ask Emilia where she got those teal shoes, btw? I’ve got a serious crush on them…
