Breakfast at Tiffany’s Themed Engagement Photoshoot

The shoot took place at Hamilton Scot Inn located in Cary, NC.

Inspired by Old Hollywood glamour and aesthetic; Caleb and Avonlea channel Paul Varjak (George Peppard) and Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) respectively in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.  

The strikingly attractive couple was styled using wardrobe pieces reminiscent of 60’s era Hollywood, while still maintaining a contemporary and classic vibe.  The setting added the appropriate amount of vintage, comprising a quiet and potent mix of polished elegance and charm.

MUA:  Dawn Frischmann Losinger created a color palette that straddled the vibrancy of the 60’s and the modern look of today’s make-up application.

Hairstylist:  Shereese Cromartie styled the models hair using as her inspiration images of the leading actors in the movie.

Assistant: Carrie Fleitz did an awesome job with the video and provided much needed assistance.

Stylist:  Polymoniker researched old movie posters on the internet and reviewed the movie for styling ideas.

A themed engagement shoot is a great way to introduce wedding guests to a couple before tying the knot.  The engagement shoot augments the client’s comfort level in front of the camera with the wedding photographer; allowing the client and the photographer an opportunity to gain ideas on what angles work best for them; resulting in better pictures commemorating  the special occasion.  Couples are encouraged to show off their personalities with creatively-themed shoots.  Another popular reason for engagement photos are “save-the-dates” announcements.
