This couple's Harry Potter engagement photoshoot is pure magic

This couple's Harry Potter engagement photoshoot is pure magic

Including one incredible Platform 9¾ inspired idea...

 

Michele Matthews and Jared Grunwald had a seriously brilliant idea when it came to picking a theme for their engagement photoshoot.

We're talking Harry Potter, people - Harry Potter!

The photos from the couple's inspired session capture the magic of love perfectly - as well as the betrothed pair's dedication to all things HP.

Speaking to Buzzfeed about their photos, Michele said: "I have read the series like six times, own all the movies and usually kick butt at any form of Harry Potter trivia. Jared also really enjoys the series but he isn't as nerdy as I am! He loves to do Harry Potter-related things for me, he's taken me to shows and events, he's bought me clothes and trinkets, all just to put a smile on my face".

Aw!

For their engagement shoot, the couple went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida, where Jared's best friend Kevin Cucci (who just so happens to be a professional photographer) captured the pictures.

Jared asked Kevin to help the couple create an incredible 'disappearing' shot - taken on the famous Platform 9 ¾

As Kevin explains: "The disappearing shot was Jared’s idea. He wanted to get some sort of shot representing them crossing through Platform 9¾. There’s one spot where you can stand as people walk through giving that illusion, so I stood in it, waiting for it to be clear and just photographed them walking through. It took two attempts and it was a bit time consuming because it was a busy section of the park, but we got it!"
