Lucky Number 13: Sarah and Matt Tempt Superstitions

Oh boy. Where to even START with this one! When Sarah and Matt first contacted me, I loved them from the moment I learned their wedding was on Friday the 13th. Amazing. Then…months later we started chatting about their engagement shoot..and they totally side-blinded me with their theme: Superstitions. After I picked myself up off the floor and wiped the stupid grin off my face, I was all over it. We found ourselves the most perfect, amazing, abandoned farm ever – and took it over (with a little Photoshop, too) – and tempted superstitions (there’s 13 of them below – can you find them all?) Seeing as the happiest day of their lives is on (apparently) the unluckiest day possible – it only made sense to poke a little fun at all the other silly things that we aren’t supposed to do.

Of course we also did some warm and fuzzy shots with a twist of quirky…specifically Pig and Monkey (you’ll see what I mean below). It’s the names they have for each other (for good reason too LOL) – so they had to make an appearance somewhere in there too. Matt surprised Sarah one day with the little mascots of one another – and well – they had their moment in front of the camera, too.

Thank you both SO MUCH – this was so refreshing and inspiring, and I could do your shoot every day if it were possible. I can’t wait for the big day – and the clever way you’re incorporating these shots into your wedding! – Shawn Van Daele

    Absolutely wonderful! How on earth did you work the crows? You really captured it all in this one, Shawn: humour, style, romance, and beauty. Nicely, nicely done!
