This couple knows how to celebrate Star Wars Day in style.

Lindsey and TJ Gibson are big Star Wars fans and wanted to make sure it came across in their pre-wedding photoshoot.

The couple enlisted the help of Vancouver-based photographer Dani Boynton, who managed to capture the perfect Star Wars-themed photos of them ahead of their wedding ceremony which, of course, took place on May the 4th.

“I actually pitched a Star Wars shoot on Facebook to my followers and I know Lindsey because I used to play roller derby and she plays roller derby,” Boynton told Daily Hive.

“Lindsey and her fiancé chimed in (to do the shoot) and I was like ‘Absolutely, I’ll do it!'”

Boynton and the couple headed to Burnaby’s SFU campus and took the pictures at the Academic Quadrangle and in a forested area on Burnaby Mountain.

Boynton, a self-proclaimed nerd, says she loved photographing the couple.

“I did a little Star Wars shoot with my dog last year and I kind of wanted to ramp it up and do something more spectacular this year,” she said.

Lindsey and TJ already eloped in Las Vegas and got hitched in a chapel hosted by Elvis himself.

They wanted to leave the paperwork until they got back to Canada. They had a small ceremony today in Stanley Park for their family and friends.
