Yes you read that right, a “Pride, Prejudice and Zombies Engagement Shoot” from Fandi.es! The feisty Elizabeth the heroine of the classic period romance novel takes on the undead, love and society in this alternate universe of Regency-era England.
Located in Valencia, Spain Fandi.es specializes in creative and artistic photography working with their team of stylists, makeup artists and craftsmen to create unforgettable weddings and engagement shoots like this one.
“Whether you survived the zombie apocalypse or not, you better be there,” reads Shannon and Flo’s epic zombie inspired comic save-the-date.
Both come from different backgrounds Shannon a girly, girl who likes to kill zombies with neon pink pumps. Her other half Flo, a self-professed geek who put together their comic book love story panel by panel with their engagement photos shot by Cashman Brothers photography. Check out their logo on the bottom right- it’s the Green Lantern icon with a Hello Kitty silhouette, cute.
The idea for their engagement shoot was “to be something different from all Vegas engagement pictures,” says the couple. After deciding on the zombie theme, the pair picked Nelson’s Landing in Nevada as the perfect location for their zombie slaying romance. ” It had a ghost town, the hills have eyes kind of feel to it,” explains the couple, “well it is an old mining area.”
So you want a zombie wedding photo of you and your wedding party, but don’t want to mess up your dress or hair and makeup. Groom Josiahx posted a video on how he “zombified” his wedding party and turned himself and his bride into zombie slayers. “we had our photographer grab a shot of everyone in their best zombie pose,” says Josiahx, “So, I decided to do a bit of Photoshop, and timelapse it!”
Earlier this week I featured his Walking Dead Engagement Shoot shot at the show’s production location in Grantville, Georgia. Today, I have another beautiful (yes, I said beautiful) zombie themed shoot from photographer William Hogan owner of Famous William Company. Collaborating with The Funky Shack an art studio that caters to designing weddings, and weirdly, has a connection to the popular AMC zombie series. Scenes of Season 3 of The Walking Dead were filmed in their studio with zombies being decapitated right in the space where they hold design consultations with their brides!
The Zombie Wedding Bash is more than just a fun zombie themed shoot. It’s a charity event benefiting Camp Southern Ground a camp created by Zac Brown for children of all needs. “Not only did The Funky Shack get involved with this awesome charity,” says William, “they got us involved too and had us there with the photo booth at their Zombie Bash!!”
William grabbed the zombie bride and groom and took some beautiful shots of them, as well as the amazing zombie inspired desserts by Simply Catering, using only his iPhone’s camera!
The Walking Dead fans Jeremy and Heidi’s timing couldn’t have been better. Not only is it the perfect time of year for a zombie themed engagement shoot, but their downtown Grantville, Georgia location was recently made over to accommodate AMC’s The Walking Dead production. While shooting season 3 of the popular zombie apocalypse series most of downtown was blocked off with 24 hour police security while production began transforming the signs and building fronts into the “King County” set seen in the show.
Photographer William Hogan owner of Famous William Company located in West Georgia, did an amazing job capturing Jeremy and Heidi’s love for each other (even while fending off a zombie attack). Keep watching the show for familiar scenes from this shoot and view more beautiful photos from this shoot on Famous William Company.
Even in death love lives on for couple Janette and Brian who had a frightfully, fun Halloween wedding. Half of the dynamic duo that runs the fangirl blog Le Geek Janette says, “I can say with all certainty that my wedding day was the best day of my life…I’ve never been a traditional gal so logically I wasn’t looking to plan a traditional wedding.” With over a year to plan, once the date was set the couple sent out their zombie themed Save the Dates and home-made invites to prepare guests well in advance for what was in store for them.
Janette and Brian decided on keeping the ceremony relatively traditional opting for a chapel located at a cemetery to still tie into their theme. Janette wore a white wedding dress and veil with a cobwebbed red rose bouquet the groom a grey suit and matching Halloween themed boutonniere. Being the geeks that they are, after the two were pronounced husband and wife the couple made their exit down the aisle to the theme from Star Wars. Always a great way to end a wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony guests were given time to get ready for the couple’s costumed reception! “All in all, I’m very lucky to have married such an awesome guy that would even be willing to go with a crazy idea like a Halloween wedding. We make a great geeky team.”
All couple Kimberly and Daniel wanted for their engagement shoot was a nice picnic with a few zombies, a couple shotguns and a shot of the ring. Photographed at the beautiful Crescent Beach, which was also the exact location of their engagement; Vancouver Wedding Photographer – Love Out Loud Studios turned out some beautiful shots of the couple fighting off a zombie attack like it’s no big thing.
Photographing weddings in Vancouver and Fraser Valley the team also travels internationally for destination shoots. “We had the pleasure of photographing this fun couples’ perfect engagement shoot.” A big group of the couples’ friends played the zombies and makeup artist and friend Mary Phan did a great job with the walker’s makeup.
