Call me a cynic, but every time I spot some PDA-extreme couple taking overly-staged engagement shots in some pseudo-urban location, I have the instant urge to throw up a little bit in my mouth. It’s not that I’m anti-love, nor anti-romanticism, and certainly not anti-photography (if such a thing exists), it’s just that I usually feel that the cheesy engagement photoshoot is just that – full of fromage.
Full disclosure: there have been one or two engagement shoots that didn’t make me want to toss my cookies. A certain retro-DIY queen in my office comes to mind, but that’s because the shots weren’t over-the-top syrupy sweet and still felt really true to who the couple is.
As for the rest of the offensive lot, looks like I’m not the only one who finds these shoots a little irksome. We’re More In Love Than You Are (another Tumblr blog) chronicles the worst of the worst of engagement shots, with witty captions to boot. Here are a few highlights from recent posts and check out the full site here.
