Will photographers do green screen photos with fictional backgrounds?

My fiancée and I want to have our engagement photos done. Rather than pose in front of scenic backdrops, we'd like to have photos taken in front of a green screen, then have vistas from video games that are special to us inserted behind us. For instance, in the finished product, we're in front of the castle from Super Mario 64 or a Paris nightclub from Sly Cooper. Is this something that professional photographers can/will do? I know there's green screen photo places, but will they add the game backgrounds that we provide? Are there licensing/copyright issues in play that will get in the way of this?

How does digital copyright protection work?

I recently purchased an album by downloading it from a website. The license agreement said that I can burn it up to 10 times, and put it on up to 3 mobile devices. Both of those are fine by me - I only have one iPod, and I don't really need 10 CD copies of it. It did get me to thinking, though... [more inside]
