Shoulder Pads, Braided Belts and Jean Skirts! Couple Channels the '80s in Hilarious Engagement Shoot
Welcome, To the '80s!
In an epic photo series, the Charlotte, North Carolina, couple channeled the ’80s with high-waisted trousers, chunky earrings and big glasses.
And their dynamite photoshopping (with unicorns and hearts) was the cherry on top.
The couple says they were inspired by films like Napoleon Dynamite, Eagle vs. Shark and Kung Fury.
“We decided to chase a different kind of perfect, the kind of perfect that would allow us to run with our creative instincts, let down our inhibitions and bond over a ‘I can’t believe we did that’ kind of memory,” they told Huffington Post.
“[We] find a lot of creative intrigue in the era of ‘yuppies,’ shoulder pads and synthesizer music,” they added. “It was a no brainer.”
How They Met
The hilarious couple met in December 2015 at an art gallery and Smith popped the question on July 16 in his backyard.
“Have you ever met someone and felt like you’ve known them for years?” the couple told Huffington Post. “That’s how it was for us.”
This is what they look like in real life.
Smith and Truslow hope their photos show off their unique personalities.
“If there is anything that this photoshoot should capture, it is that we don’t take ourselves too seriously,” they said. “But we take our craft very seriously, even at our own expense.”
A FOREVER LOVE
They haven’t set a wedding date yet, but we can’t wait to see the photos from their nuptials!
