A Medical Themed Engagement Shoot: Gem & Jay-R

No-one does engagement shoots like photographers from The Philippines… and Gem and Jay-R’s shoot by WeDoItForLove is no exception!I love this for it’s super creative and totally over-exaggerated concept.

So, Gem & Jay-R are medical reps for one of the country’s top brands… so what do they do? Dress up in straight jackets of course! They took inspiration from the movie, Love & Other Drugs as well as Blink 182’s music video for After Midnight.

A Proposal Live on Stage & A Rockstar Anniversary Shoot: Tony & Kelly

Tony & Kelly have been married for four years but they never had any really great engagement photos, so photographer Kaethe Mari thought she’d remedy that!

Tony Gambino is a local photographer, musician, and um… freaking cool as crap,” Kaethe wrote. “When he asked me if I would do some headshots of him, I jumped at that like a girl jumps at fro-yo. It just so happens Tony has an incredibly beautiful wife, Kelly. I asked him if she could come along – and if I could grab a few pictures of them together. When I excitedly told a friend about who I photographed a few days prior, she said to me, “Oh my gosh… have you seen their youtube proposal video?!” I hadn’t…but now, I’m even more obsessed with these two. Watch it, and fall in love with them just like I did. Please.”

Kaethe is right, this is the most amazing things I’ve ever seen – all I have to say is it’s a good job she said yes! Be sure to check it out after the ‘jump’…

A Cute n Colourful Danish Engagement: Jakob & Majken

“When I first met Majken & Jakob, I immediately felt in love,” Danish wedding photographer Amanda Thomsen wrote. “It is not a secret that I love colours and a style that shows personality. Well, as you can see these two wonderful people had that, and on top of it all, they where so warm and funny that I felt like I had known them for a long time.”

I’m featuring this super cute engagement for no other reason than it makes me incredibly happy. These two are seriously cute and their matching glasses make my heart sing!

PS Stand by because I’ll have their equally adorable wedding hitting the blog in the next few weeks, hurrah!

“Beauty & The Beast” A Taxidermy Engagement Shoot: Mckenzie & Alex

For their engagement shoot, Mckenzie & Alex wanted something unique. They wanted something that screamed ‘them’ and showed their quirky side. They came up with the taxidermy concept after visiting a museum and falling in love with how they looked and the artistry behind each one.

“We were initially going to try and shoot them in the museum but then we found out that we could actually rent the animals!” photographer Michelle told me. “I then came up with the idea of shooting them in a simplistic urban setting to add a little bit of surrealism to the concept.”

An Adventure Shoot: Kirsta & Alec

The eagle-eyed amongst you might recognise Kirsta & Alec from their amazing Mexican Art wedding that I featured in February. Well they’re back, today with their amazing post-wedding shoot…and Krista has new (omgsoawesome) pale blue/grey hair!

The couple, who have just moved to Australia, wanted to do this shoot with their wedding photographer Galaxie Andrews to remember the places they love near their old home, before heading off for new adventures in Oz. “A mini end-of-season adventure with Kirsta & Alec took us on the road, exploring the quiet desert rivers, sandstone boulders and a placid mountain reservoir,” writes Galaxie. “We paused to enjoy wine, cheese, prosciutto and fruit, while great blue herons hovered above, and everything around was quietly breathtaking.”
