I’ve never been sure what actual purpose engagement photos are meant to serve, but I guess it’s probably to introduce yourself to the world, as a couple. What do you want your new collective identity to say?

Sometimes there’s room for interpretation. I generally assume them to be a very expensive “fuck you” to all of their exes, a tacit means of conveying that they’ve made a full emotional recovery after you dumped them on their birthday in 2010. You may have left me stranded at a Texaco, but look who’s happy NOW? their eyes scream as they clench the hand of their new partners.

To that end, what better way to express your boundless delight at having found your perfect mate than this?

Shot by photographer Michel Klooster, the photo, as you can see, features a bride (fake) fellating her soon-to-be husband amid a majestic forest. But honestly, she could be doing anything. Sure, maybe she’s blowing him, but maybe she’s inspecting his junk for cancerous moles. That’s marriage, baby!

Klooster was quick to note that the photo is meant to be a joke, and that anyone who is not on board should go back to 1996, before humor was invented.
