We photographed a Doctor Who themed engagement session! You may be wondering what Doctor Who is? It is the longest running sci-fi TV show in history! It’s a British sci-fi TV show that started in the 60’s. I remember watching the show with my dad when I was little! If you want to watch the show yourself, Doctor Who is available on Netflix and DVD.
So this is how it goes… The Doctor, is an alien (time lord to be specific) that travels around in a TARDIS, a time-traveling spaceship! The TARDIS is disguised as an old British police box and is stuck that way since the chameleon circuit (a cloaking device) broke. The Doctor travels with his companions such a Rose Tyler, around the universe in space and time, saving people, whole civilizations, and fixes any wrongs. The Doctor encounters many foes along the way and using his wit, sonic screwdriver, companions (such as Rose Tyler), and the TARDIS, can accomplish anything. Also the Doctor doesn’t die, but regenerates into a new person and is replaced with a new actor in the TV show. The show is currently on it’s 11th doctor. Laurie and Justin portray Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) and the 10th Doctor (played by actor, David Tennant). They chose to do a Doctor Who themed engagement session because it is their favorite show, and is something that is special that they enjoy together.
Doctor Who visits Greenville, SC!
“Uh, oh!” – Rose
“I really am an expert at flying the TARDIS!” – The Doctor
“I think you will like where we landed!” – The Doctor
“Did anyone notice us?” – Rose
Laurie’s ring and the sonic screwdriver.
“We must save Greenville from destruction! Allon-sy!” – The Doctor
Laurie’s dad, Dennis, built the TARDIS from scratch! He modeled it after the 10th doctor’s TARDIS. It looked so amazing! Dennis designed it so well that the lights work and everything!
The TARDIS gathered a lot of attention from people in the park. Quite a few people stopped for pictures posing with and inside the TARDIS! One fan of the show was even carrying a sonic screwdriver with her! How cool is that?!
We were attracting so much attention that the Greenville News even came out, filmed us taking pictures, and interviewed Laurie and Justin! Click this link to watch the video!
Here’s a preview from their wedding! Of course, the TARDIS made an appearance.
