06 Mar Angelique + Marcus | a Beyonce Inspired Engagement
Angelique and Marcus don’t do anything halfway. They go all in. They have a style all their own, and their relationship reflects that. From their first date in Chicago, to their romantic proposal (Marcus re-created that Chicago first date here in Memphis!), and everything in between, Angelique and Marcus are confident about putting their own stamp on everything they do!
Angelique and Marcus both love music, especially Beyonce and Jay-Z. Angelique knew right away that she wanted something different from what everyone else was doing when it came to engagement photos. When she told me that she wanted to do a Beyonce inspired engagement session inspired by their favorite musicians and power couple, I was so excited! There’s nothing we love more than collaborating with our clients to give them something unique and special! We all knew this would be a fun session, and would really capture the essence of who they are together.
We decided to do our own version of Beyonce and Jay Z’s On the Run tour, including a motorcycle and a “wedding” dress that Angelique fashioned herself to mimic what Beyonce wore in the teaser video. We even put together our own teaser video from their session! Now this is a super cool, fun way to do a save-the-date and announce your engagement!
Who wouldn’t want to celebrate with them after seeing this 90-second teaser?? Just press play to see the quick video.
It was also important to all of us to get some romantic, sexy shots of the two of them, so we started out in formal attire with fabulous light! Both Angelique and Marcus are a dream to photograph!
Angelique and Marcus are comfortable together no matter what they’re doing! They make everything fun.
Angelique, you are gorgeous!
After getting warmed up, Angelique and Marcus changed clothes and were ready to bring out the motorcycle! And then the fun began….
My favorite! The wind was being very cooperative. Angelique did an amazing job of styling their outfits, and she even made the dress herself!
Sunset that day was incredible.
Naturally, they had to ride off into the sunset!
To continue the tour theme, Angelique worked closely with Andria Lewis, who is planning their wedding, and LePenn Designs for these creative save-the-dates! Along with a traditional card, they sent these VIP lanyards that they are encouraging guests to wear to the reception. That will be one amazing “after party!”
Angelique and Marcus, thank you so much for all your amazingness, in front of the camera as well as in your creative planning! If we had this much fun for your engagement photos, think about how amazing your big day will be! I absolutely cannot WAIT for the wedding!
