Brides Up North

Comicbook Romance, A Real Engagement by Mandy Charlton Photography – Stacey & Chris

May 18th, 2011 | Julia Braime

Remember Mandy Charlton Photography’s call out for “a totally, like, loved up couple” on this here wedding blog a couple of weeks ago?  Well, Brides Up North does like to help out my friends in the industry and I only went and found her exactly what she was looking for!

.

Step forward Brides Up North reader Stacey and her man Chris, who got in touch with Mandy via the blog to take part in her fun new concept shoot.  Mandy wanted to create a set of images reminiscent of the strip comics in teenage magazines of the 1980s.  Boy, did she do a good job! 

.

Mandy says: “I think I may be onto something new and unique here! I’m chuffed to bits!”  I couldn’t agree more.  A very cool take on an engagement or couple’s shoot, which mixes humour, nostalgia and some awesome photography.  Brides Up North adores these images and is thrilled to share them today.

Because love is supposed to be fun…

    I must say I’m pretty upset seeing this, I contacted Mandy with this exact idea a few weeks ago, down to the details with the props. I’m incredibly disappointed to see that she simply plagiarised my entire idea, which I felt was quite personal to myself and fiance, and advertised for another couple. Safe to say I’ll be avoiding her in the future and keeping my ideas to myself next time! What a shame.
