Photographer Captures Couple’s Journey Toward Marriage as Movie Posters

When planning their engagement photographs, photographer Joshua Watson and his then-fiancee Rachel wanted to announce their engagement and invite family and friends to their wedding in a creative way. Living in La Mirada, California, just 30 minutes away from Hollywood, the couple settled on the concept of movie posters.

Josh and Rachel come up with the concepts, design, and production of the photographs, and then enlisted the help of photographer Jordan Nakamura to shoot the actual images and retouch them afterward. The goal of each image was to make the viewer do a “double take.”

Each of the images contains information about a certain aspect of the couple’s journey toward being married. Each poster is based on a poster for an actual movie or television show. The two posters above were inspired by the TV shows “How I Met Your Mother” and “Mad Men.”

Here are the rest of the images in the series, which each one preceded by the actual poster it’s based on:

Jordan writes that the shoot was quite fun, and that some of the resulting posters mimicked the real posters so faithfully that Google Image Search is confused by them.
