Through All of Space + Time { Doctor Who Inspired Wedding Day Styled Shoot }

This project was a serious labor or love. Kiera of Jakfoto Films and I are huge fans of the BBC TV show Doctor Who…and one day was just hit with the idea of putting together a chic, Doctor Who styled inspirational shoot. It gave us a excuse to watch more of the show AND try to pack in as many show references as possible without hitting people over the head with them. We like to call them Easter-eggs. Our goal was to design a gorgeous wedding for those not familiar with the show, and for the fans let them have fun picking out Doctor Who references.

We love this idea of mixing geek with chic…something we don’t see too often sadly.

Because Kiera and I knew this shoot would become a larger production, very early on we asked Jen of First Pick Planning to come on board. With our powers combined….we created this eye candy.

We also had the honor of being featured on Green Wedding Shoes today! Feel free to check out the feature and give all the vendors involved some love.

Jakfoto Films also created a video that included even more nerdy references and the best fake vows I’ve ever heard.

Note: We put together this inspirational styled shoot because things like this make my heart happy. It’s a real couple that modeled for us, but all of the ideas and styling was put together by the vendors involved. Jakfoto Films and myself did the bulk of styling and DIY-ing (yes, we stayed up till 3am for a few weeks straight glittering balls and painting old windows), but it wouldn’t of been put together without the help of everyone. I would consider myself so lucky to photograph a real wedding like this. Lets make Geek Chic a thing. And I will be there in a double-heartbeat to photograph it.

Trude - So many brilliant touches! Love all the thoughtful details, right down to the TARDIS key on her bouquet and the companion and sweetie tags on the chairs. Gorgeously done!

Ali - Okay as a whovian, current fiancé, and photographer I just nearly regenerated. I’ve spent more time on Pinterest then I’ve kept up reading other photog blogs. Then I saw this on a wedding website, and fell in love and nearly kicked my self in the behind for not keeping up with your blog! We live in miami and decided to have a full blown rustic wedding but decided our mutual love of the doctor (10 for me, 11 for him) needed to be incorporated in a grooms cake or a tardis photo booth. This just confirms it. I may even need to cange my theme after this!
