Getting proposed to or proposing to your significant other is a huge moment in anyone’s life (same goes for giving birth). But the endless avalanche of engagement photos on Facebook can get extremely exhausting. Especially if you’re still single + ready to mingle, with no plans on settling down anytime soon. And no +1s for all of those Save the Dates :-X While most people would simply continue scrolling down their feed as quickly as possible to avoid seeing another album of their friend’s obnoxious engagement shoot (or just hide ’em!), one guy took a completely different (and creative) approach to tackling the blissful nightmare. Chipotle fans, you’re gonna envy this guy.
San Francisco-based writer David Sikorski turned his annoyance of all that social media couple love into an artist’s statement (so to speak) and executed it with the help of photographer Kristina Bakrevski. To work out his engagement album irritation he took to the streets of the Bay to pose with his one, true love: a carne asada burrito from Taqueria La Cumbre in San Francisco’s Mission District. Of course it’s a burrito, he lives in SF AND is a human, what else were you expecting?!
While a romantic man and his burrito selfie uploaded to Instagram would have totally gotten the point across the same way a passive aggressive Facebook status expressing his frustration with all the pre-wedding pics would, what’s the fun in that when you can create an entire album of cheesy engagement photos with your tortilla-stuffed lover (no Starbucks lovers here ;)
Taking us on a tour de love of SF with his carne asada dream meal, David and his foil-wrapped lover pose in front of landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, the Palace of Fine Arts, Alamo Square (hey Full House houses!), a trolley and more. This is real, hot, tasty love, you guys!
Of course, when it comes to delicious food, like a burrito, it’s hard to stay monogamous. David let slip to BuzzFeed he couldn’t fight the hunger pangs throughout the shoot. “I got hungry during the shoot and a second burrito was needed to step in.” We feel you David, emotionally + physically. Long live the endless love of burritos in all of us.
