This couple tried taking a cute pic by a fountain, and then of course something terrible happened
Anyone who has ever posted a photo to their Instagram knows the intense process behind getting that perfect pic. For every Instagram photo there are hundreds of rejected photos of a forced smile or awkward movement. This past week, Twitter user Elaina Vecchio shared the most amazing Instagram fail to her Twitter account: Vacchio and her boyfriend fell into a fountain trying to get the perfect shot.
Elaina and her boyfriend, Nino, dressed up for a formal occasion, were taking pictures in front of a fountain, when they decided to sit on the fountain edge to snap a perfect photo. Unfortunately, things did not go according to plan.
Check out Elaina’s tweet below:
Of the many things we love about this, we especially appreciate how the photographer was able to capture the three most important elements of narrative:
1. Elaina and Nino are having a great time taking pictures but think they should take on on the edge of the fountain because it would look romantic.
2. The couple gets the sense that something isn’t right. The photographer, following orders to take as many cute pics as possible, keeps taking photos.
3. And then, Elaina and Nino end up in the fountain.
Elaina and Nino’s friends kept snapping the hilarious event, giving us their immediate reactions. We give them a lot of credit for being good sports about the fail, especially because we know how long it takes to get ready for a formal occasion.
We don’t often see the pics that humanize the couples behind #Relationshipgoals so we love that Elaina shared these pics with the world.
