Engagement photoshoots are a required thing now, and sometimes, unsurprisingly, they are very quirky! This particular couple inexplicably did an engagement photoshoot that recreated the opening scene of the classic animated film 101 Dalmations, and admittedly it is very cute. At this point, I was planning on copy/pasting a couple of the pictures in this post to show you the photoshoot, but then I discovered this site that has all the photos and automatically starts playing “Love Story” by Taylor Swift and I couldn’t not link to it. (Okay, but that song is about Romeo & Juliet, another literary/movie couple, and this disconnect is a little jarring. Like, listen to the words, slideshow people. As far as I know, the 101 Dalmatians couple didn’t have to overcome any parental issues. Just because a song is called “Love Story” doesn’t mean it’s applicable to every love story.) Anyway, the photoshoot is very well done, although I have opinions about engagement photoshoots.
I’m not engaged, but I have already planned out my own movie-inspired engagement photoshoot. Basically, it’s going to be the scene from the 1985 cult-favorite Clue where Mr. Green and Yvette have been paired up to explore the attic, and they’re standing at the bottom of the attic stairs kind of arguing about who should go up first and Yvette (I will be dressed as Yvette) is like, “Zhen we will do it togezher.” (I’m good with a French accent.) And then they start up the stairs side-by-side, but then Mr. Green (Jude Law will be dressed as Mr. Green) starts pushing Yvette from behind so she ends up going up the stairs first. Here’s a gif!
I can’t wait to put my own version on facebook for my cousin in Alaska to “like”!
