Engagement photos can be quite boring at times (unless you have an amazing wedding photographer) — all the cheesy, often forced, smiles, awkward poses that ultimately all look the same in the end. This is why Jackie Nguyen and her fiance, Nate Huntley, decided to make theirs super unique.
With the help of their photographer friend Isaac James, the couple of four years from Queens, New York, spent the last year doing their own series of quirky engagement photos that will make many nerds cry with envy.
“Nate and I are huge nerds,” Nguyen said in an interview with HuffPost. “We are completely obsessed with the majority of couples we paid tribute to and have a genuine love for being a bit kooky. We’ve even tried to invite Macaulay Culkin to our wedding using our photos. Not sure if he’ll accept, but it’s worth a shot.”
What they tried to pull was not easy, especially for couples who are on a very tight budget. Luckily, their friends in the arts industry all pitched in with costumes to help Nguyen and Huntley, who are both actors, with their engagement photos.
Some of the duos that they pretended to be during their photo shoot include:
Doc Brown and Marty McFly from “Back to the Future”.
Legendary artist couple Yoko Ono and John Lennon of The Beatles.
Dr. Ellie Sattler and Dr. Alan Grant from the hit dinosaur movie “Jurassic Park” – with a special appearance by their friend Sabrina Olivieri in dinosaur costume.
The Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv, from the classic Christmas movie “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2”.
Agent Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers from “Captain America”.
Diane Nguyen and BoJack Horseman.
Thor and a Griffyndor wizard from “Harry Potter”.
Miranda Hillard and “Mrs. Doubtfire”.
Jack and Rose from the hit romantic movie “Titanic”.
Sally and Linus from “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”.
And lastly, Dwight Schrute and Michael Scott from the hit comedy series “The Office”.
The couple’s engagement photos are, hands down, incredible! Who knows what they might come up with on their big day, which will be held in Columbus, Ohio, in April. While speaking with HuffPost, Nguyen hinted out that it’s not going to be an ordinary wedding.
“We have the most outlandish and fun things planned for the wedding, some of which are surprises that we can’t reveal,” she explained. “What we can say is that it is a Chex Mix of Willy Wonka meets Christmas meets a magical carnival.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!

A lot of female Korean netizens are apparently going crazy for Jonathan Learoyd, France’s representative for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea; so much so, that some of them even left creepy messages on his social media account.
Learoyd, a professional ski jumper, became very popular with the ladies in Korea.
Some women couldn’t contain themselves, and took their fangirling to another level: the creepy level.
Some wrote in their comments, as translated by AllKpop: “Burn your passport,” “You can just jump into my heart,” “Jonathan just please stay in Korea,” “Jonathan marry me!!” and “I wanna exchange you for 25 millions [sic] Korean males.”
To those who are saying this is nothing but harmless fangirling, better think again. The dude is legitimately a minor – only 17 years old.
Others are calling out this type of creepy fangirling, with Learoyd even liking some of the responses, saying, “Damn what the f*ck is wrong with these comments.”
“Plese refrain from making comments about burning his passport. It’s overwhelming Jonathan. People from other countries will seriously think we are weird TT,” one comment said.
Here’s what some wrote in the 17-year-old athlete’s social media comment section and the English translated version through Google translate.

A heartbreaking video has recently surfaced depicting a Chinese father telling his daughter that Blacks and Indians are not suitable marriage partners, and that White people would be preferred instead.

Cenk Uygur, creator of the popular progressive online network “The Young Turks”, was recently outed for writing multiple racist and sexist blogposts in the early 2000s.
Uygur was found to have made a number of posts using objectifying language to describe women during his early days as a blogger. In one of the graphic posts in 1999, he wrote that women were genetically “flawed” because of their lack of sex drive, according to The Wrap. “Obviously, the genes of women are flawed,” Uygur wrote, reportedly expressing frustration over the limited amount of sex he was getting at the time in Miami, Florida. “They are poorly designed creatures who do not want to have sex nearly as often as needed for the human race to get along peaceably and fruitfully.”
“You’re a shame to your race.”
“Race traitors will be the first ones to be shot on the Day of Judgement.”
