It’s a bookish kind of love. Sort of. Well, how do we put it… she loves books, and he doesn’t (other than comic books). Lynette is one book-reading machine – she can devour 3 books in a day! Lynette’s always nagging Alvin to read more books other than comics, so it was quite fun to illustrate this dynamic relationship through images. I love how Lynette also made her entire bouquet out of comic books (poor Alvin – I hope it didn’t come from his beloved collection!).
Other than this book connection, Alvin and Lynette have another geeky connection – their shared love of Star Wars. We love their customised t-shirts and their entire make shift ‘campsite’ – representative of the idea that they’ll go camping together one day. Alvin loves the night sky and twinkly little lights, but somehow has never gone camping before. Lynette, on the other hand, has had countless camping experiences, especially when she was studying in Australia. So I guess an indoor camping trip to our studio would have to do for now! (sorry, we didn’t manage to paste the glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling that day).
There’s so much about this couple that we love… but we’ll leave their story for their wedding blog post, which will happen next year, as they are getting married this January!
I love doing shoots where it gives us hints about what a couple is like – can you guess that they love baking? :) (and eating?)
Alvin and Lynette also spent many hours on the phone in a long distance relationship between… guess which countries?
I wonder how many long distance relationship couples actually go on movie ‘dates’ online – watching the same movie on their laptop or TV, in different continents, whilst Skyping at the same time!
The magical world of books!
Guess who’s the winner?
Even their cat made an appearance at the shoot. (I am glad to report that the studio furniture survived the shoot).
Congratulations, Alvin and Lynette! Can’t wait for the JB wedding!
