Tim Burton Inspired Engagement Photos

With Halloween coming up next week, I thought Suzanne + Vichi’s engagement photos were perfect to share today! Suzanne was inspired by the work of Tim Burton (director of beautifully artistic movies such as Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland to name a few). His movies are totally bizarre with wonderfully wacky characters, but his movies always have a happy ending with a moral lesson to be learned which I just love. They didn’t want to go full on Tim Burton (might have been a bit too weird for an engagement session!) and I think Jani B Photography helped them find a perfect mix of beauty and weird. Oh, and another fun fact about this couple – they live in Cape Town, South Africa! Just love hearing from our readers all over the world! Congrats you two cuties!

A perfect mix of beauty + quirky! Congrats to Suzanne + Vichi and thanks so much to Jani B Photography (located in Cape Town, South Africa) and to Rose Room for the styling. You can see more photos from the shoot here on Jani’s Blog.
