For a while now I’ve wanted to do a styled shoot with Rusty Bride Rentals. I’ve always loved antiques and vintage themes.

I think my love for them comes mostly from my father who has collected antiques for most of my life. The idea of antiques brings me that much closer to him; so I adore the concept of incorporating them within weddings/engagements. Plus, when Leah told me that they had a 1972 Norton Commando in their collection and I was sold.

Our next step was finding the perfect photographer! I’ve known Shraddha Rathi of DreamGrapher for a few years now. I’ve followed her work religiously on her social media because I love her unique artistic eye. I thought she would be superb for this shoot. I reached out to her, and it turns out that she was drawn to the vintage theme and the 1972 Norton Commando as well.

Megan’s red wedges, the wicker picnic basket, and their sunglasses definitely make this photo one of my favorites. We wanted items that matched well with the motorbike.

We had so much fun picking a choosing vintage items for each photo. Megan and Tyson were the perfect couple too! They made our jobs so much easier! I’m so grateful that they allowed us to do anything we wanted. As you can see, we even wrote with permanent pen on Megan’s hand! I was also delighted to see Megan’s sleeve tattoo (another love of mine).

We thought we would come up with a few Save The Date ideas as well. I love this one! Rusty Bride Rental’s vintage chalkboard came in real handy too!

If you don’t already know this, I am a sucker for plaid! When Leah pulled out her plaid vintage blanket and antique plaid picnic basket my grin could not be hidden. I went directly to these awesome items.

Shraddha was also able to capture some intimate moments between Megan and Tyson. These shots make me love everything about engagements and weddings.

Leah also brought out this perfect white hat to pull everything together. SOOOO cute!!

Of course we needed to add something that was unique to Canada during the summer/fall!! These geese are the perfect extra for a really artistic engagement shot.




From the cute red wedges, to red strawberries, to red plaid picnic basic, to the red motorbike, this picture is definitely one of my favorites.




These pictures are why I truly love weddings! I cherish these special moments that truly express the love between the couple.
