Here’s Why No One Shoots Engagement Photos in the Suburbs

Nothing says unbridled passion like a treeless cul-de-sac, right? That's what Nathaniel Hood, who writes for Streets.mn and Strong Towns, and his new bride-to-be were thinking when they shot these engagement photos as a gag.

Hood said on his website:

Engagement photos are either urban or rural. They are either a former factory or a leafy meadow, the brick wall of a forgotten factory or an empty beach. Never the subdivision. Never the cul-de-sac.

We wanted to capture the ambiance of the American subdivision.

Did they ever!

Hood promises his real engagement photos are forthcoming. In the meantime, you have to congratulate him on marrying perhaps the world's best sport.
