Once upon a time a Chicago nurse met a doctor on Match.com, fell in love, and wanted to do something completely different with their engagement photos.
Completely different, but so much fun! ((Emily + Robert)) are a real life nurse and doctor duo. The couple brainstormed with Michael Novo Photography to come up with a super creative idea — taking their medical field professions and exaggerating them a little bit in pictures. “As the idea formulated, I thought back to advertisements circa 1930 where doctors were featured promoting cigarettes. I envisioned that this might be the ‘good ole days’ kind of doctors visit where one could enjoy a smoke and a martini while waiting for their check-up,” their photographer said.Emily went all out and found a nurses uniform with classic nurse’s hat and white Mary Janes, paired with her bright red lips. Robert was in charge of bringing the decanter and martini glass to their engagement session. Paired with fun, kisses, laughter, and a few additional props (candy… including giant lollipops!), the couple had a blast. ((Emily + Robert)) even made a quick call to the father of the bride and asked him to join in too — as a patient. According to Michael Novo Photography, within 5 minutes of his arrival, Emily’s father was in his boxers and a patient gown.
“We both have pretty serious careers and we love to find any opportunity to laugh,” said Emily, the bride. “We wanted our engagement photos to show that and we definitely laughed a lot while shooting them!”
Congrats to ((Emily + Robert)) as they tie the knot a few weeks away… on September 12!
