As surely as engagement is a rite of passage for younger couples, so too are the photo shoots they order to tell the world of their love. Most of these come off without a hitch, but some are responsible for images so weird, uncomfortable, and just plain awkward that you have to wonder what they were thinking. Maybe they were duped into it by the photographer, or perhaps so high on young love that they didn’t think about the ramifications of, say, straddling a cannon while gazing alluringly into each other’s eyes. Oh well. Their mistakes are our good fortune:
