Awkward Engagement Photos That Will Make You Not Want To Get Married, Like, EVER

Even before I chose to get hitched at a judge’s house in the Utah mountains on the spur of the moment, I absolutely knew I would never be half of a couple who chose to send out engagement photos. It’s just not my way to stand in some posed posture of love with a babbling brook rambling behind us into the sunset. Not that I begrudge those who do, in fact, I enjoy looking at engagement photos and wedding invitations and always promptly display them on my fridge.

But, after taking a gander at the collection of photos you’re about to behold, deciding to spontaneously get married and forgo the whole engagement process, yes, even the ring part – I don’t regret a thing.

My advice? Simple. No poses. Do what you normally do and let a photographer shoot that. If you get a pro, he or she will find the beauty in your relationship without you putting on a sickening love display. Take the following photos under advisement before you plan your engagement shots.  I think I can tell you with some assurance that the preponderance of nudity about to assault your eyes isn’t even the most puzzling thing about each photo…

    So I must've looked at this photo ten times before I saw the snake. NO, that's not a euphemism. Look closely and you'll see that this couple was going for an Adam & Eve thing... I think?

    The fact that I would choose this scenario if forced at gunpoint to pick an engagement photo for myself from this bunch says A LOT.
