romance by chris craymer...









Took a gander at Green Wedding Shoes (via Unruly Things) today, I came across photos by Chris Craymer for his new book, Romance. I don't know about you but I really want this book! I don't usually buy a lot of photography books since they're so expensive but this one is full of images to die for! I just love the how cute and romantic they are. And they're all real-life couples too. Craymer says he wanted the book to be...

"essentially emotional rather than intellectual or fashion led. Romance for me was the perfect vehicle to make pictures which can covey a number of emotions...I wanted to try to make pictures which could be for example sexy, funny, joyful and also powerful and even soulful."

Sounds good to me! You can pre-order the book here.

P.S. There's a picture of Hershey's kisses in the book which reminds me... this past weekend, instead of clinking glasses for the couple to kiss, there was a bag of silver and gold Hershey's kisses. If you picked gold the couple kissed, if you picked silver you had to kiss someone else.
I thought it was a cute idea!

What a really sweet original idea - what colour did you pick?

Amy said...

Agreed - she needs to take a break from all that lovin and have a snack! Lovely photos!

Amanda - I ended up picking silver... but I got to kiss Ricky instead, which was good for me! :)

This looks like a must-have book! It would look ADORABLE displayed with some gorgeous flowers on a coffee or console table. And wouldn't it make a good engagement/wedding gift too?

Thats exactly what I was thinking! I have one on the 26th of July but I don't think i'll get the book on time since it isn't released yet, lol. But it's a great idea!
