eric & marguerite’s cinematic movie adventure engagment session|dover, nh wedding photographer

so, eric & marguerite are my pseudo family…they were my landlords/housemates for more than 2 years…our kitties were brothers…yeah, i was auntie gwyn and they were uncle eric & marguerite (well, before my poor mao was killed.)  anyway, when they got engaged, i told them i wanted my gift to them to be an engagement session.

eric took a bit of convincing.  like many men, he wasn’t into the idea of being followed around w/ a camera for a few hours.

but…i had an advantage!  i have SEEN eric’s dvd shelf.  i know what’s on his DVR…i mentioned some ideas i’d seen…and wham.  he was in.  the session was inspired by indiana jones.  ahh-nold movies.  the hunt for red october.  jurassic park.  bruce lee.  oh, and godzilla.  this was one of the most fun sessions i’ve ever shot, so if you’re a creative couple with a unique idea for a session, by all means!  speak up!

we started off at the rope swing in our front yard.  (it was HARD to position them to get the right light but not have the house in the background!  indy wasn’t swinging from rope trees w/ 60s ranch houses in the background, now was he?!)

sweet little mao was outside…and of course he wanted to be a part of whatever we were doing.

at least he thought he did.

i love, love, love that THIS is what they used for their save the dates…they made it look like a little movie poster.


the dinosaurs came.

eric tried to be brave and protect his woman, but…

sometimes you’ve just gotta get outta dodge before the t-rexes devour you.

but then the ship captain of…uh, the s.s. gdjggfajo…came to save the day! he laughs in the face of danger!

and all was well for our happy couple.
