Bad Engagement Photos

In the vein of "Bad Family Photos", I'm starting a collection of "Bad Engagement Photos". We've all seen them, hell, some of us have even been featured in them (not me - our engagement photos were damn classy). I could go on and on with stereotypes about what would make an engagement photo a truly bad engagement photo but you can let your imagination run wild. Think mullets, slogan t-shirts, lame backdrops, soft focus and 80s bangs (this is, after all, 2009).

This first one is from my old hometown's newspaper, the Austin Daily Herald. I have a feeling that it will be a complete goldmine for material but if you see a bad engagement photo posted on a newspaper website (hopefully in Minnesota) send the link my way.

Notice a slogan t-shirt and some sort of bad effect as a border on the photo. I am also venturing out a limb here in saying that her carpet DOES NOT match the drapes.

MinnPics explores autumn today from a few perspectives. Check them out now.

Oh man. I can't wait to see more. That's fantastic. I bet you're right about the drapes.

He obviously just pinched her ass.

I don't have much hope for a marriage when the impending groom can't bother to shower for his engagement photo. Let me take a stab in the dark and guess that this was a candid shot at the local dive in between throwing darts. I'm just sayin...
