Having a specific theme for your engagement photos is such a fun idea, and including a theme or location that has to do with something important in your life together is perfect. Including details from one of your careers as a fire fighter, police officer or military is one that has become increasingly popular over the past few years. Some couples simply want to utilize the uniform in photos, while others may choose to include the place of work or emergency vehicles in addition to the uniform.
Peter and Nancy chose their fire fighter themed wedding shoot based off of Peter’s profession. The couple decided to include the firehouse in the photos, and Peter wore his uniform. Though the couple chose to have a destination wedding in Jamaica, they decided to hold a wedding shoot when they arrived back home in Richmond, Ontario.
Linda, with Black Lamb Photography, had the opportunity to photograph the couple at the local firehouse, allowing them to include the importance of Peter’s profession in their wedding photos. Here is what Linda revealed to us about the couple’s themed wedding shoot:
“Nancy and Peter got married in Jamaica. As beautiful as their wedding day was, they felt like they were missing something important in their wedding photos: fire trucks. Peter is a fire fighter, and so, it was important for them to include that part in their wedding photos. In order to include fire trucks, they arranged to have an after wedding photo session back home in Canada. When Nancy contacted me and described to me what they were looking for, I was thrilled to be a part of creating that shoot. They were going to rent a vintage fire truck to be a prop in their photos. They were also going to use the fire truck at the fire hall that Peter works at. Instead of wearing the suit he wore when getting married in Jamaica, Peter dressed up in his formal fire uniform, which is used for special occasions. He also dressed up in his actual fire fighting gear for some of the photos. I loved the marrying of the old and the new in their after-day wedding shoot with the modern and vintage trucks. I also loved that they included their fur babies in their wedding photos, by Nancy attaching a small pendant in her bouquet with their photo in it. I was really happy with how the photo shoot turned out and I was pleased help them bring about their vision that really showed what was a big part of their lives.”
Stay tuned to see the bride’s thoughts, and we hope you enjoy this beautiful fire fighter themed wedding shoot!
Here is what the beautiful bride had to say about her post-wedding shoot:
“Since we had a destination wedding, we were unable to include the fire trucks in our original wedding photos. Peter has been a firefighter for over 28 years so the fire department is a very important part of our lives, and we wanted to capture that. I have to say that even if we were married at home, we probably still would have done this shoot after the fact, since wedding days are so rushed and we wanted to be able to be relaxed and not time-crunched for capturing all of the photos we wanted. Linda was absolutely fantastic to work with and we couldn’t imagine anyone better to help us achieve our vision. She made us feel relaxed and managed to make two very non-photogenic people look great!”
