A Couple Posed As TV And Movie Characters For Their Engagement Pics, And It's Amazing

by Terri Pous February 19, 2018

How do I get an invitation to this wedding?

Engaged couple Jackie Nguyen and Nate Huntley met while acting in a production of Miss Saigon, so naturally, they decided to really ~get into character~ while taking their engagement pictures.

"My fiancé and I are extremely outside of the box, and felt like traditional photos wouldn’t encompass the fun or adventure we like to have," Nguyen told BuzzFeed.

The couple of four years dressed as 11 different TV show and movie characters for their pre-wedding photo shoot, and I'm not lying when I say that these Dwight and Michael costumes aren't even the best ones.

Nguyen came up with the creative idea, but her fiancé quickly got pumped about it. "We originally thought we would just dress up as Thor and Harry Potter. But then, we sat on our couch and started to name other people we wanted to dress up as, and it became the funniest conversation."

"The other dynamic duos stem from our favorite movies and shows, Home Alone, Jurassic Park, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Office, etc.," she told BuzzFeed. "We quote these movies/shows almost on a daily basis and tried to think of the funniest/coolest people we would want to be or meet one day."

Even though Thor and Harry Potter will probably never have a crossover, Nguyen and Huntley made the combination work.

Amazingly, the spot-on costumes were completely budget-friendly. The couple spent almost a year sourcing them from thrift stores around New York and theater friends' closets, plus a few post-Halloween sales at novelty shops.

"We had a very, very, very small budget and what helped us stay within the realms of affording a big project was having it spread out throughout a year," Nguyen said. "There are a lot of wigs used throughout, many of which I already owned. I did my own hair and makeup for the entirety of the shoot except for the Titanic look. Thankfully, both Nate and I have a theatre background so hair and makeup doesn’t feel weird to us."

Clearly, the effort they put in paid off.

"Nate had the most fun doing the Titanic look because what went into getting that shot was absolutely bonkers," Nguyen said. "We were holding back our laughter so much because it was just ridiculous."

"We had to find a pool, at a gym, that either no one was in (so they wouldn’t feel uncomfortable with us taking photos there) and legitimately try to achieve an angle that emulated the infamous scene well enough, while wearing wigs, heavy makeup, and trying appear sad and frozen to capture one of the most dramatic scenes ever!"

Nguyen's favorite photo, however, was this Wet Bandits shot inspired by Home Alone.

"Home Alone is my absolute favorite film, more of an obsession I would say, and dressing up as Joe Pesci gave me eternal life. We also shot that at Bethesda fountain in central park where the movie was shot, so I felt the spirit of the Wet Bandits were there with us that day. Plus, I’m secretly using these photos as a ploy to get Macaulay Culkin to come to our wedding in April."

And even though this Mrs. Doubtfire shot is 100% perfect, I have a feeling their love story will end much happier than Daniel and Miranda Hillard's.
