They used this for their annual Summer card.

Hanes? Nothin’ but class…
I think the “awkward” part is that he looks like he just sweated his ass off rubbing her from head to toe in massage oil. Look! There are beads of (sweat, water spritzed from a spray bottle, baby oil?) all over his arm.
Also, I would think this would make a odd engagement photo, since they both have their wedding bands on.
He’s sagging for Christ sake pull up your pants man!!!
This shouldn’t be here. It’s a great photo.
I can’t look at this without thinking of that song”love hurts”…. lol
Haha I can see that !
Obviously most of these “couple shots” on this website are engagement photos.
Its in the engagement category.
I actually like this picture…Guess I am one of the few…lol. I like that they went and did something different than the normal family portraits.
For the love of God–She’s topless–and this is being sent out to people as their annual summer card! I can’t believe people don’t get how tacky this is. Crass~
You *do* get that the “summer card” comment is the humorous caption added by the webmasters as a joke, right?
I don’t get what all the fuss is about, I think it’s a beautiful picture that the couple can hang in their bedroom! They are both beautiful and the nakedness just adds sensuality to it!
I agree. I think the photo is great – nothing awkward about it.
Not that awkward… I doubt they knew this was submitted.
She looks a lil like Madonna.
I think would be a better pic if they were not made to look like they were sweating profusely.
I am actually personal friends with this couple. This was not used a summer card and they are still together.
Is her name Shawna?
Haha, or Tawny, Hope or Amber?
Awesome pic! They look great!
What’s he looking at? Seems like he’s looking at his biceps and not into her lovely eyes!
I think she’s very pretty too; although her eye & lip make up is too heavy; makes her natural beauty look a bit “vamp-ish”. He’s quite a catch himself. To me, It’s the all the grease that’s the awkward thing. To me,They have a kind of romantic “Biker Look”… I hope that they are still together, seeing the world from the seat of their Harley.
I think the caption might just be a joke.. I mean, who sends out summer cards? (I’ve never even heard of them)
I had the same quesiton. I’ve never heard of sending out “summer cards”…. it’s either very regional, or it’s a joke.
First time on this website, guys? Of course it’s a joke.
It’s “summer cards” because they look like they’re greased up with suntan oil.
It’s “summer cards” cards because they look like they’re greased up in suntan oil.
As my Grandmother would say, “Hitch up yer britches, young man!” What’s with the BVD shot?
they are Hanes
And “BVDs” is a generic term for underwear as well as a brand name, like “Kleenex” or “Band-Aid.”
It’s only weird as a Summer card. Otherwise it’s just a couple doing a pose from a dated advert and looking reasonably good in it. Not true awkwardness.
I wonder what Grandma thought of her summer card? (Although I often wonder what Grandma thinks)
Crap. Not a good thing to think “this image is cool” when visiting your website.
I like it, too. They’re beautiful and it’s well done.
OK, so did the subjects in this AFP submit this themselves, having realized how freakin’ weird it is? Or did one of their friends/relatives get this in the mail?
I was wondering the same thing!
Me too- I was hoping I’d find the story in the comments, lol!
