Someone REALLY needs to Photoshop an Army surrounding you two. :)
Ms Hairball: mariposauss_hairball on March 11th, 2006 10:51 pm (UTC)
Or maybe a gust of wind in their hair and robes to emphasize the power of their love?

Either way, that is totally the best engagement photo I've ever seen!

By the by, where was this, the greatest photo ever, taken?
Bilal Dardai: Weirdobdar on March 9th, 2006 03:45 pm (UTC)
Feudal Japan. Duh. That's why we can't afford a honeymoon. We built a time machine for the photo.

(So maybe we'll honeymoon in the Age of Enlightenment.)

is the engagment photo (which is striking, incidentally) indicative of the style of your wedding? in other words, is this a preview?
Bilal Dardai: Ninja!bdar on March 9th, 2006 04:03 pm (UTC)
The only thing it's indicative of is that we're not going to be taking ourselves too seriously. A little seriously. But not overly so.

As to whether or not there will be more Japanese wardrobe, etcetera...probably not. I suggested that the groomsmen be dressed as ninjas, but this didn't quite fly.

You guys rock.

I think you guys should fight other married couples. To the death. To prove your supremacy.

Not us, though.
Zul: Bridehssst on March 9th, 2006 08:21 pm (UTC)
We could take on other engaged people though...

*Grin* As I've said before, I LOVE this photo! Y'all ROCK!!

*Applauds both the photo and the kick-ass/not-taking-selves-too-seriously attitude*

HA! Awesome. Seriously.
the infamousmiss_sherri on March 9th, 2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
yep. it's still amazing. and the photoshop-ed army is a must have.

Zulhssst on March 9th, 2006 08:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but it's cool that: WE NEED NO ARMY!! FACE US, AND DIIIIIIE!!!!!

i was trying to think of something witty to say in response, but i can't think of anything. at any rate, that brightened my day. you two are great.

Something in your looks, your posture, whatever, make me feel like Dana is the courageous, questing warrior out to avenge something or recover something, and Bilal is the wise, somewhat war-weary mentor/companion/bad-ass that joins her in her quest.
Bilal Dardai: Ninja!bdar on March 9th, 2006 06:22 pm (UTC)
You should see the outtakes. Then you'll see who's courageous, who's war-weary, who's battle-frenzied, who's not sure what they're doing...

(We actually took a whole bunch of photos of us in combat. Later, we decided that wasn't the proper message for an engagement photo.)

Wow! What a cool shot! MUCH more personality than your standard studio head shot. And my heart melted just a little bit when I saw it, because it looks like SPRING in northern Illinois! So even the time of year is reflected in your photo. Awesome. Where was it taken?
Bilal Dardai: Ninja!bdar on March 9th, 2006 07:52 pm (UTC)
It was actually taken last January, during a cold, wet, but not snowy winter day. When we'd scouted the location, we thought we were going to be doing the shoot with snow on the ground, which would also have been neat.

That rocks.

Can I choreograph the fight?

This is, like, nine million types of the awesome, Bilal.
