Olivia + James’ Doctor Who Themed Engagement Shoot
It’s an idea London photographer Kari Bellamy
has had in her head for awhile, a beautiful Doctor Who themed engagement shoot shot on the streets of London. What was missing? The right clients who were also fans of the popular British science fiction series who would be just as excited as Kari to pull it off.
When Kari first met her client Olivia to discuss her upcoming wedding, she knew she had found her Whovian couple from the way bride-to-be Olivia was dressed. “When I met Olivia to discuss her wedding photography, she was wearing a Doctor Who T-shirt,” says Kari, “so instead of talking about weddings we geeked out on Doctor Who for a good 30 minutes. I immediately had the idea for a Doctor Who Engagement Session and I’m so excited that I get clients who want to try such things.”
Photographing around London Kari and her Whovian clients searched for locations that inspired the “feeling of old things and new things as to be traveling through space and time,” says Kari. Besides the “real” Tardis they found to photograph they also used a large cutout of a Tardis for additional shots around London, as well as, a cutout of a Dalek for some incredibly, beautiful indoor Christmas shots.
