Love it or hate it 3D seems to be everywhere 3D TVs, 3D video games and now 3D wedding proposals. Michael, a technology consultant who spends most of his time consulting on 3D workflows, proposed to his girlfriend Kate in 3D and as she sat watching also felt it in 4D. “When I decided to propose, I thought what better way than to propose in 3D. I hadn’t seen it done before – and that’s enough for me.”
So how did he do it? Basically, Michael shot a video to propose to her in 3D, edited the video in 3D, showed it to her in 3D, and filmed her reaction in 3D. “I was shot on a green screen in 3D, then was ‘inserted’ into 3D weather footage. As I was planning this, I told Kate I needed to speak at a conference and needed to run the presentation by her to see how it flowed. The topic – ’3D Immersion’ allowed me to pull some old fashion 3D gags…and catch her completely off guard.
Well he didn’t have to fight all her exes she did send him on a Scott Pilgrim-themed scavenger hunt around the city of Toronto with a very special surprise at the end.
Redditor proposing_gf shared her photos from her inventive and untraditional proposal. She says on Reddit,”we had talked about it before casually. I asked him if he would be upset if I ever asked him and he said no that he thought that was an awesome. I then had to lead him off my trail but telling him that it was never going to happen and that I liked tradition.”

An Austin, Texas wedding in December between two Doctor Who fans; of course their wedding color would be Tardis blue. Austin based wedding photographer Nadine captured the geeky side of this cute couple at their The Winfield Inn wedding. Recalling the day Nadine says, “during her first look, [the bride] brought along her little Tardis, which made “Woosh! Woosh!” spaceship noises when you lift the lid. As she got close to Kevin, she lifted the lid, and he burst out laughing at the unexpected wooshing noise. Then he turned around to see her for the first time. The moment was full of laughter and happy tears, and it really reminded me how blessed I am to be a wedding photographer.”

You may have noticed that my little blog got a new look today. I wanted to clean up the design and change out the header photo, but the main reason was the old look somehow broke on that web address and wouldn’t update through the control panel. I couldn’t switch out the featured slider images or change the design other than add new posts and widgets. I even tried re-installing the same theme with no luck, and in the end, I had to switch from whengeekswed.com/blog1 to whengeekswed.com/blog (which also redirects to whengeekswed.com).
Here is what has changed with the new design:
A New Header And Logo
New Social Media Buttons: I added StumbleUpon, Reddit, Buffer and Delicious buttons to the bottom of the posts.
