Amy Schumer Says What We’re All Thinking About Engagement Shoots
Once you start to creep into your mid-twenties, engagement photos seem to bombard your Facebook feed just as much as those Candy Crush invites do. And it only takes looking at a few to figure out that most of them kinda, sorta all look like different versions of the same photo. There, we said it. As much as we l-o-v-e them! We’re guessing you’ve spotted more than one shot where the soon-to-be married couple is holding each other close in the middle of nature while the golden rays of the sun shine down perfectly on them.
Never one to let a relevant trend go un-parodied, Amy Schumer just released a deleted scene from her show Inside Amy Schumer that pokes some playful fun at the engagement trend, and, you guys, get ready to seriously LOL.
In the video, Amy plays the blushing fiancé while Girls‘ actress Jemima Kirke takes the role of the photographer Tiffany. When Amy’s fiancé asks if engagement shoots are really that much of a thing, Tiffany scoffs and responds, “Engagement shoots are the single best way to rub your happiness in the fat townie face of every person you went to grade school with.” As the shoot gets underway Jemima places them under a tree, because “when people are engaged they hang out under trees.” She also stops the shoot to tell them not to look at the camera but to look at each other to show the world just how in love they are.
Amy + Jemima, it’s only November, but we’re going to go ahead and say this is the best holiday gift we could have ever received.
