Elaborate Star Wars-Themed Engagement Shoot Complete With Light-Rapier Battle


I think these two are going to make it (if they don’t kill each other in battle that is).

Recently, two aspiring Jedi Knights enlisted the aid of Mezame Shashin-ka, a photographer from Singapore, to create a Star Wars-themed engagement shoot complete with epic lightsaber light-rapier duels, spaceships and more. The end result is pretty fantastic.

See more after the break…

DIY Photography interviewed the photographer about the shoot, and here’s some of what he had to say:

The Art of Mezame has been in the business of doing themed pre-wedding photography for couples who dare to be different and have a unique photobook to showcase their relationship with an epic cinematic feel.

Our clients first came across a previous shoot we had for another couple featuring them as survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Wanting to do something similar but with a Star Wars theme, the couple approached me and asked if I could do it. I jumped at the chance as I’m a Star Wars fan too and thought my affinity for toy photography could add a more interesting perspective to the photo series.

After weeks of pitching ideas, drawing storyboards, testing shots and site recces, we finally got around to doing the shoot with the couple as a pair of Jedi Knights who had to battle their Sith groomsmen. Armed with lightsabers sponsored by KIT SABERS, and costumes they put together themselves, the couple and their groomsmen duked it out in epic battle scenes inspired from the Star Wars movies

Ah, you can never trust those Sith groomsmen. Here are some pics from the shoot!
