Hello fellow bees!
My soon to be is into more of the goth things for our wedding(which is how we ended up with skeletons on our wedding invites lol) He would like to take our engagement photos in an old cemetary. Now i want to keep this photo session not as depressing as it seems but he is hell bent on this idea. Im stuck i want to give him this since im not crazy about alot of his other ideas hes had. Plus he mentioned doing this before our actual engagement because he wants to propose in december and i am not a fan of the cold(especially being out in it lol). Thanks for your help!

@Sammicake: Hmm, some cemeteries are quite pretty. I bet it is possible to do some pictures in one that looks less depressing. You might have to look around some, though. However, if he is set one one that you aren’t as fond of, you can try doing multiple sites for your photos. I think that’s pretty common these days. They often include a wardrobe change and a few different locations. You could pick another location you’d like to do as well.

If you already have skeletons on your invites, I say go big or go home! You can have a say in the photos so some of them could be vintage & romantic instead of depressing. It’s totally okay to do a fun photo shoot, since if you’re doing it before you get engaged it’s not engagement pictures.
Wait a second… how do you have invitations if you’re not engaged?

Instead of a cemetery, could you do the photos in front of a building with gothic stone architecture? It would have the darker feel without being a cemetery.

@LucyLaLa: were planning all of this on a really small budget since were doing it on our own with no family help. His friend is a designer and tells him everything so he just showed him a style he thought hed like. We havent ordered them or anything lol. He just decided that was what he wanted. So we already know what they are going to be. A very not normal couple we are lol

I agree with @Cappugcino find a building with gothic architecture. I think e-pics in a cemetary is creepy and honestly disrespectful to the people that are buried there, it’s their final resting place, not a playground to skip around and take pictures.
