Heavy Metal Engagement Photos


From the Too Good to be True (but actually true!) files, we get the best engagement photos ever.  John Awesome (again, unlikely, but true) and Nydia Hernandez were getting their engagement shots in the fields and forests of  the Cleveland National Forest in California, when they happened upon the death metal band Coldvoid.

The band was also doing a photo shoot for their album cover, and so were dressed in their finest stage regalia. Leathers, spikes, swords, and facepaint.

“During the last part of the session, we noticed a few guys with some corpse paint makeup on sitting at a nearby bench blaring out some black metal music,” Awesome, 34, of Orange County, told ABC News. “We just randomly thought it would be a funny idea if we could get them to be a part of our engagement shoot. So we approached them and asked and they more than happy to accept! Super nice people. I seriously can’t make this stuff up.”

And like the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, when they got mixed together, the magic happened.
