p.1 #1 · Need help with a theme...


A few months back, I saw a blog post from another photographer that incorporated chalk boards, desks and such as the couple shared a interest in a "school" theme.

Well, I've got a couple that wants to do an engagement with a theme around "trees/nature" and "words". He's into nature. She's a proposal writer. They're both nerdy. (I mean that in a very good way.)

I have a beautiful location picked out. It's a nice golf course with amazing naturescapes for him, but I need ideas on how to incorporate the theme words. The first that's come to mind is Scrabble or crosswords.

Anyone got any cool ideas?

An old fashioned typewriter.

Doing a crossword together under a tree.

Or playing Words with Friends on an iPad.

Simply reading under a tree, or in a beam of sunlight on a blanket. Maybe find a beautiful stack of leather-bound books to use as props. Or a pair of Kindles, which would be infinitely less photogenic.

Scrabble/crosswords on a picnic plaid blanket is on the list. It just seemed so generic.

Old book pages... Like torn out. Or love letters?

A local park, some spring flowers will be or are already blooming, beside a small stream, an arboretum nearby, potted plants, or a nursery, for nature ideas.

A words emphasis might include some iconic signs, a building (or even a large billboard) that houses or highlights the cause/business she writes proposals for, a library.

This is a cool idea. I'm sure they're glued together somehow though, to keep everything from blowing away.

Can you do a tie in with the whole proposal writing / engagement i.e. do a mock proposal for 'a proposal'
