Anyone who has ever seen the award-winning romance movie, The Notebook, remembers the famous scene where Allie and Noah share a passionate, steamy kiss in the pouring rain. Not only is this one of the most romantic parts of the film, the shot was also chosen as the movie cover. Actor Ryan Gosling and actress Rachel McAdams even won the “best kiss” award at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards. This kiss scene was done perfectly, as the couple runs towards each other and Allie jumps into Noah’s arms. The director of The Notebook really knew what he was doing when he filmed this world-renowned part of the movie.
What could be better than having an engagement photo resembling a kiss that has won awards? This photo is our version of the iconic movie cover, and while the people in this shot are not Ryan Gosling nor Rachel McAdams, they are definitely equally as attractive, if not more! I shot this image in a closer frame in order to capture the passion and chemistry between Des and Andrea. We were able to recreate the downpour with an assistant spraying them with a garden hose-definitely not as glamorous as the movie scene, but the outcome of the photo was fantastic.1/400; f/2.8; ISO 500; 56.0 mm.
