It’s increasingly common these days for couples to pose for engagement photo shoots — so much so that our eyes sometimes glaze over when we seem them in our Insta feeds. But one Texas couple created a body-positive engagement photoshoot that people are noticing — and for all the right reasons.
Stephanie and Arryn, a newly-engaged couple from Overton, Texas, posed for a boudoir photo shoot to celebrate this wonderful moment in their lives. The photos quickly went viral, resonating with viewers because of their body positivity, as well as the tremendous amount of love captured on film.
Wolf & Rose Photography posted the images from the shoot to their Facebook page, and they are genuinely making us tear up.
As the photos went viral, Stephanie realized she had a unique opportunity to spread a body positive message to people who don’t get to see a variety of body types online. “I remember being in junior high and looking at myself in the mirror, wondering why my stomach wasn’t the way it was ‘supposed’ to be,” she said.
As for her relationship with her soon-to-be husband (they’re planning to wed in 2019!), Stephanie says Arryn has helped her embrace her body and has always loved her for exactly who she is.
Stephanie hopes that her photos going viral will “inspire society to believe that who they are and what they look like is enough to be truly loved,” which is the most stunning and empowering part of this whole thing. We’re sending all our congratulations to this gorgeous couple as they celebrate their engagement, and we can’t wait to see the wedding shots.
