We've taken them, we love them, we can't wait to see yours, but when you really think about engagement photos—which so often include shots of you staring lustfully into your fiancé's eyes or mysteriously into the distance—they can come off as a bit awkward. But this hilarious couple decided to embrace the weird and shot a serious of engagement pics that can only be defined as the most awkward slew of snapshots we've ever seen. One look at these pics, and you just know these two are meant to be!
Instead of the typical posed, romantic shots most couples take to celebrate their to-be-wedded status, Caitlyn Campbell and Andrew Tucker of Chattanooga, Tennessee, set out to take the most awkward engagement photos, like, ever. Yep, we'd say mission accomplished. "We were inspired to do this engagement shoot from the movie Masterminds," Campbell explained to People magazine. "We both absolutely love that movie and are huge fans of both Kate McKinnon and Zach Galifianakis! When we first watched the movie together we just knew we had to remake that engagement shoot one day."
According to Cosmopolitan, the couple headed to Goodwill to find their too-funny denim duds and then reached out to photographer Zoee Davis of Evergreen Film Co. to shoot the project. "The shoot was so fun!" Davis told People. "We took some cues from the Masterminds posing, and then just started thinking of the most awkward things possible. By the time we left, our stomachs were hurting because we laughed so hard!"
"I love that they can be silly," the photographer added. "You really start to see who they are together when the laughing starts." And laughter is a big part of why these two cuties work so well together. "Humor is a huge part of our relationship," said the bride-to-be. "When we first began dating my friends used to say, 'Do y'all ever have serious talks or do you just laugh all the time?' "
"I think you need to have some humor in a relationship to make it work," Campbell continued. "It helps if we are arguing or just having a bad day. We know how to make each other laugh."
Here's to a lifetime of giggles, you two! (P.S. We can't wait to see your sure-to-be hysterical wedding photos!)
