Don’t try to be funny.

Either this couple is going for the “Check us out, we’re so goofy together!” look or they are horribly unaware that their positions of choice are very suggestive. Either way, chances are you’re sending this announcement to extended family and friends, who might not be in on the joke.

Don’t choose random meaningless locations as your backdrop.

If you and your husband have never taken a bath in the middle of the woods before, then what the heck are you doing there? It would kinda make more sense if your fiancé was a plumber and you worked in forestry, but if not, choose a scene that better reflects your interests as a couple.

Don’t include others in your photos.

“Oh honey, you, me, and this dolphin are going to be so happy together!” Engagement photos are supposed to capture a special bond between two people. Don’t let something else steal the spotlight.

Don’t act like you hate each other.

As cheesy as making goo-goo faces at each other might seem, it’s better than acting like you’re about to run for the hills. You’re getting married and hopefully kind of dig each other. Act like it.

Don’t let the photographer shoot from below. Ever.

Everyone has their good side and bad side, but shooting from below yields the most unflattering photos for everyone. Suddenly your chin triples in size and your friends and family know what you’re hiding up your nose. Not cute.

Don’t over-edit your photos.

Unless this groom has a Thumbelina fixation, we’re perplexed why they thought this was a good idea. The wonders of Photoshop are undeniably genius, but when it comes to engagement photos, special effects make the pictures appear tacky.

Don’t reenact famous movie scenes.

If you do not have Spidey sense and cannot shoot web from your wrists, please, please just get down from the tree. Yes, the upside-down kiss between Spiderman and Mary Jane is breathtaking, but when a couple tries to reenact iconic scenes, they usually come out looking cheesy and contrived.

Don’t emulate cheesy pop culture icons.

Is it just us or does this photo look suspiciously similar to the Twilight poster? Even if you and your husband are diehard members of Team Edward, do you really want the photo declaring your love to be associated with pop culture craze?

Don’t pose in unnatural situations.

It’s totally normal for couples to visit exotic beaches, snuggle up at the water’s edge, and take a nice little snooze while half submerged in the ocean. Right? Unless you have a rather severe case of narcolepsy, this is definitely not natural.

But don’t act too into each other.

If people look at your photos and feel like they accidently walked in on an intimate moment, you’ve gone too far. Couples take these pictures to share with their friends and family so avoid getting all handsy with each other until the camera is off.

British photographer Tom Robinson got the idea for his Feet First series in 2005 while sitting on Brighton beach in the UK with his girlfriend Verity. Ever since then, the globe-trotting couple has continued to photograph their feet as they traveled the world.

They have since travelled through 31 countries taking the shots in places like Vietnam, Peru, Scotland and Australia. The couple now has a collection of more than 90 “feet photos” taken in front of exotic locations and natural wonders.

Then the photos took a happy and unexpected twist when a third pair of feet, that of their daughter Matilda, joined them in 2011.

“It really excites me to think of all the future adventures we're going to have together,” said Tom to the Daily Mail. “In 30 years time it'll be great to look through the series - remember all the places we went together, see how fashions have come and gone and how those little feet got bigger and bigger.”

An interdisciplinary artist who has been practicing for 30 years now, Guy Laramee has done several things in his lifetime, from stage writing to contemporary music, painting painting and literature. But the work he became most famous for is book sculpture. Rocky mountain ranges, bodies of water, islands and hidden caves, you name it, he can bring it to life out of a book, in 3D. For instance, from a set of English and Chinese hardcover encyclopedias, he has created two series of stunning landscapes, named The Great Wall and Biblios.

They were all more straggly haired and dishevelled versions of themselves when they walked into the Green Dog beauty salon in Tokyo - where mud packs, massages and aromatherapy are also on the menu.

Following a shampoo pet and dry, these dogs look as good as new.

Done up to the ca-nines: Canon is a Shih Tzu who prefers the Veronica Lake peek-a-boo.

Her hair is kept long so it can be tied with ribbons

This Bichon Frise is called Letasu, meaning lettuce

when dried looks just like a polar bear cub. Perhaps that should be iceberg lettuce

This Standard Poodle looked in a bit of a state before he walked into the salon...

...but he walked out with a 'boot cut' which leaves the leg hair wide and fluffy

Ukrainian artist Oleg Shuplyak creates amazing optical illusion paintings.

Different elements painted in specific locations come together to form a second picture of a bird, human face, or human body.

It is possible to see two distinct images in each painting.
