This Couple Celebrated Their Engagement By Recreating Film's Greatest Duos

This is Jackie Nguyen and Nate Huntley:

You might be able to tell from that photo that they are in love and engaged. The two met while doing a production of Miss Saigon in North Carolina. They’re both actors and perhaps a bit dramatic. In an email, Jackie wrote that when they decided to get married, they joked about taking engagement pics that would be so “outlandish” that they’d confuse their whole family. It was so fun to brainstorm ideas, they couldn’t settle on one. It turned into a year-long photo project with photographer Isaac James and relationship goals for the rest of us.

The two have been taking more and more engagement pics, paying homage to all their favorite characters in TV and film. Here we have Marvel’s Agent Peggy Carter and Captain America:

There’s Dwight Schrute and Michael Scott. They’re sort of a couple, if you think about it.

Ellie Sattler and Alan Grant escaping the dinos in Jurassic Park:

Doc and Marty McFly forever:

The characters from Mrs. Doubtfire, which is technically about divorce, but still great costumes:

Some of the pics are pure fantasy:

They even dressed up as real life couple Yoko Ono and John Lennon:

And as unrequited love, from Bojack Horseman:

Don’t worry, they still have a few normal pics:

This Woman Is Hilariously Recreating Instagram Model Bikini Pics This Summer

Celeste Barber is a comedian who has made a name for herself simply by recreating all the famous Instagram pics that models, actresses, and musicians are always posting showing off their fabulous life and fit bods. With just a one pic, Barber deflates all their pretensions:

Though she’s been virally famous for a while, it is worth checking in with Barber on a seasonal basis. She keeps up with what’s trendy on Insta, and since right now is bathing suit season, she’s letting it all hang out. Nothing like seeing a million pool and boat posts spoofed over and over and over again to make you realize that Instagram models are kind of in a rut:

And here are a bunch of her latest non-bikini recreations, just for fun:

That’s the celebration of summer I want to see! Though did she go too far with this spoof of Beyoncé’s holy twins?

These Friends Have Been Recreating This One Photo For Over 30 Years

John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molony, and John Dickson got their photo snapped in 1982 while hanging out on vacation near Copco Lake in Northern California. The group was from Santa Barbara and partying like young men do, all only 19. What do teens do? Set the self-timer, of course, because even in the early eighties, teens were obsessed with selfies.

 In 2007, the group told the Santa Barbara News-Press that they knew this picture was special.

“Once we took it and saw the photo, we said, ‘We should come back and take it in five years.’ I said, ‘We have to vow to do it every five years,’ ” said Wardlaw, whose grandparent’s cabin was hosting this wild group. “We all thought, ‘In 20 years, what if we all don’t know each other?’ By vowing to take a photo every five years, it would be a way to stay in touch.”

And it actually worked. Every five years they meet at Siskiyou County lake, though they don’t have quite the same luxury of time that they once did. Most are family men with busy jobs and lifestyles. But they made it work.

“Mark drove all night just to get there this year,” said Dickson. “He arrived at 3 a.m. the day of the photo.”

There are seven photos all together, taken in 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012, but to be honest I was having trouble figuring out which one was taken when on their Facebook page. These fellas didn’t age much:

The group tries their hardest to recreate the image exactly, from sunglasses to jar shape, but occasionally things have slipped in the intervening years. It’s become quite a production, sometimes taking hours to set up. The lesson here is that if you want to take a yearly portrait with your crew, make sure it’s simple:

For 2017, the three original shirtless men committed to baring their midriffs for maximum accuracy. Their friendship is strong and so are their bods!

These Siblings Recreating Their Family Photos Will Make You Want To Host A Reunion

If you have a sibling, you know that shared memories are your most precious gift. They are also your most hilarious gift, because when you think back on what you used to do, it seems really crazy. That’s why the “family photo recreation” genre is so good. It takes the past and highlights how ridiculous we all were, even when we were being cute:

Facebook page “A Different Type Of Art” compiled an excellent post of some of the greatest sibling recreation pics of all time, making it clear that you can grow old, but still not grow up:

Though the best part of the post may be all the people sharing their less viral versions in the comments. Recreation photos are now a family tradition:

Hmm, what can I get my family to do at Thanksgiving dinner? I have six months to plan, so it better be good.
