Nothing Says Romance Like A Black Metal Band Crashing Your Engagement Photoshoot
BY Peter Wade | Oct 24, 2016 | Culture
John Awesome (yes, that's his real name) and Nydia Hernandez were going through a rite of passage for engaged couples: the engagement photo shoot. The scene was set perfectly—fall leaves, romantic lighting, and... a black metal band?
Yup. Awesome and Hernandez just happened to encounter black metal band Coldvoid in the middle of the woods. The band was there shooting promo shots for its music, taking advantage of the full moon.
"During the last part of the session, we noticed a few guys with some corpse paint makeup on sitting at a nearby bench blaring out some black metal music," Awesome, told ABC News.
"We just randomly thought it would be a funny idea if we could get them to be a part of our engagement shoot. So we approached them and asked and they more than happy to accept! Super nice people. I seriously can't make this stuff up."
The photos were posted on image hosting site Imgur and quickly went viral, garnering 600,000 views.
The couple will marry in the fall of 2017. When ABC News asked how the wedding could top the amazing engagement photos, Awesome responded, "If this band ends up crashing our wedding reception."
