Eyes Wide Shut - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is one of the many awkward engagement photos my fiance and i took. The photographer directed us to close our eyes and look relaxed. My fiance nailed it… actually, I think he fell asleep.”

    This cracked me up since I went to their wedding a few weeks ago and just happen to stubble on this photo online! I was telling my coworker about the awkward family photos board game I played on my vacation (it’s awesome!), and she didn’t know what awkward family photos were!!! I couldn’t believe it – so I brought up the website and this was the 5th picture that came up. I was like whoa – I know them!!

    Awww…this one is kind of cute. They DO look a bit awkward; but only because they were told to close their eyes. What’s neat, is that despite the sort of forced “we WILL look relaxed” stance… there’s also something very real about the way that they look; she looks like she really IS able to relax into him; he truly IS the one for her, etc. The REAL relaxation trumps the fake one 10:1 !

    Not because either one of them looks like an elephant, but this reminded me of that old story about the blind people each feeling a different part of an elephant and arguing about whether it was a tree trunk, a rope, a hose, etc. I guess it’s because of the touchy-feeliness and the closed eyes
