a lil’ bit of rock n roll bride (Astor Classics Vendor Shoot)

They walked around in short wedding dresses, sipping water martinis and smoking chocolate cigars. Surrounded by vintage cars and artifacts, they laughed, posed, played and afterwards ate cake, lots of cake. All in a days work.

For me a vendor photo shoot is like playing dress up. Except I don’t have to dress up. I get to play with my friends, meld the two worlds of fashion and wedding photography and experiment with new ideas and techniques.

Astor Classics Event Center is filled with vintage-y relics, from old phones to radios to cars. If you are an eclectic bride looking for a different place to get married, this venue is for you!

A few months ago, I did two shoots here. One was a fashion-esque shoot and one was a shoot to feature what a wedding ceremony might look like if you got married there. You can see the ceremony pictures in this POST.

The fashion-esque shoot was just featured in the Rock ‘N Roll Bride Blog. Click HERE to see the pictures.

Note: So earlier last week, I tweeted, “Nap or Blog? Decisions, decisions.” Unanimously, people commented that I should nap, and so I did and then proceeded to take the whole week off from blogging. It was a nice break. Thanks for indulging me:)

One of the hottest trends in weddings these days is vintage. It’s the new “modern.” From birdcage veils to art deco to lace gloves, brides are looking back to a bygone era for inspiration. If you love the vintage look, your venue will be an important element in pulling off the vintage feel of a wedding day.

A few months ago, I was a part of a vendor shoot at the Astor Classics Museum in Anaheim. I can’t show photos from that shoot yet, but a few weeks after that, I was back in the vintage vibe of Astor to shoot a mock ceremony. What says vintage more than antique cars?!

Our models were the best! Five minutes after meeting, we told them they had to act like they were in love. I think they did a good job, however awkward it was!
