Trevor & Jim . Themed Engagement Portraits . Cape Cod

I LOVE when engaged couples think outside the box and get really creative with their shoot. Trevor and Jim came up with the engagement portrait to end all engagement portraits since Trevor is an art director. Trevor’s  friends and colleagues, the fabulous Verne (prop stylist) and Tara (art producer) created three distinctly different scenes to photograph to celebrate the engagement of two really special people. It was an honor to photograph and to work with such talented people.

The first themed Tennis scene had a wonderful  “Tannenbaums” playful feel to it. tennisthemedengagementshoot_RC3A4997

and then they changed from their fabulous nostalgic garb into this more kind of postmodern tennis look that was also a lot of fun.TENNISENGAGEMENT 8

I call these “engagement shoot bloopers”

aren’t you glad we lost the head band!?
