So many pictures on there are so cute!!!! If someone has the free time to look up engagement sessions, save them, add them to their blog and make snarky comments, then I beg to differ- you probably are not in love at all, because you spend your free time criticizing others. Epics are supposed to be a little corny- they are STAGED. Not all of them are my style either, to be honest, but that’s why I only paid for mine that I agreed on with our photographer! What a brat.

This is hilarious. If you can’t take a joke, then you are waaaay too stressed about your wedding and what people will think and need to relax.
Yesterday, Fiance and I took engagement pictures. I made a facebook post about having to practice my “smug and in love” face …
Also, for what its worth, I share a pinterest board with another engaged friend making fun of wedding fuckery, so of course, I see nothing wrong with it. If you put it out there, you’re opening yourself to criticism.

I think sites like this are funny, but I found the particular commentary on this site to be un-funny/confusing/rude haha, so I voted both 😉

As somebody who has always thought epics are just the silliest thing ever and ALWAYS no matter how beautiful they are (and they are often beautiful) just by virtue of being all loveydovey are cheesy, I think this is just about the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, thank you so much for linking me to it! Officially following hahahahaa. The captions aren’t even necessary, just a bunch of epics in one place is funny enough to me.
People in general on the internet need to chillax and enjoy things 🙂

Meh, the concept is funny but the captions aren’t very witty at all. With someone funnier writing it, I bet it’d be hilarious.

I liked the paparazzi one, and the first one (the most recent one I guess) they ARE ridiculously good-looking (insert Zoolander accent).
I LOL’d at the “Baby I wanna plow you so hard” one.

I just have to come back to this because it irks the heck outta me. I think sites like that one are proof that our culture is devolving. It’s everything that is wrong with us as a species. Instead of lifting one another up it seeks to knock others down for what? A laugh? Aren’t we better than laughing at other people who are just trying to live their lives as best they can? These are not static pictures on our computer monitors; these are real people with real feelings. It’s just wrong.
And to say that others should lighten up just blames the victim. Dear lord, we have a huge thread about a child being bullied that is going on right now. Should we tell that kid to just lighten up because she walked out of the front door to face the day and should accept that it makes her a target for the mean-spirited behaviors of others. Really? No, because that’s blaming the victim. It’s wrong in that case, and it’s wrong in this one. People don’t need to lighten up; people need to stop thinking that it’s funny and socially acceptable to mock others, whether on the internet or in person.

I’d be tickled if we were on that site. Same with Weddinator.

I guess it’s a taste thing. To me she looks like Stacey from “what not to wear” (that’s not a compliment) and he didn’t stand out to me at all. I’m not saying they’re ugly, I just don’t get the redic part. She has better looking couples there (one I almost wonder whether it is not an epic at all but posed by models… “souls of poo”)
I thought the paparazzi one was kinda cute too!

agree with all of your statements.
I didn’t find it offensive at all, but the captions could have been funnier (but would they have then been offesnive? the world may never know)

this just isn’t the same as bullying, and that comparison disturbs me.
This is light-hearted jabbing at adults’ publicly posted vanity photos that, as one poster correctly pointed out, involve mastering your “smug-and-in-love face.” if this is too much, what form of social judgment isn’t, or do we have no rights to have any thoughts about each others’ actions?

Hysterical! it’s like awkawrd family photos!
but yes, @lolot the captions do need some work!

I think, if you’re putting yourself out there, you should be able to handle the consequences. If you think about it, it’s comedy – which has been around forever. I think being able to laugh at things in life is what is important.
I can see how you can draw a parallel to the bullying thread, however, nobody is being physically harmed by getting their e-pics laughed at.
