This Woman Was Nervous About Her Photoshoot With Fiancé, But The Result Won The Internet

So often today on social media we are bombarded by images of plastic people, airbrushed and filtered to such an extent that all genuine emotion and feeling, the human connections that shine through the picture and into our hearts, is lost.

Step forward Stephanie and Arryn, a young couple from Texas. They are not models, but friends with photographer Bria Terry, of Wolf & Rose Photography. Stephanie decided to respond to an everyday call for models to take part in a boudoir photoshoot, and as you can see, the results are stunning.

The photoshoot was uploaded onto Wolf & Rose Photography’s Facebook page, which is pretty much normal protocol, but this time the photos went hugely viral. What is it about these particular photos that have caused such a stir? We will leave it for you to decide. But the obvious love, chemistry, confidence and beauty of the images are there for all to see, generating an unexpectedly wonderful response from an infamously mean internet comments section. “This makes my heart so happy and gives me hope as a plus size woman that not all men care about what size you are” is just one example of the body positive message that this photoshoot, breaking the mold of societal expectations, has inspired.

Stephanie has embraced the opportunity to give her message of body positivity to the millions who struggle with unrealistic expectations pushed by both social and mainstream media, leading to self-esteem issues. “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 told HuffPost. “Over the years, I’ve come to accept that I am always going to be considered plus-size. I push myself out of my comfort zone by wearing clothes that I love but aren’t in society’s mold of what is acceptable for bigger women, like crop tops, tight shirts, shorter dresses and shorts. I walk around with my head high, smiling, and show no shame in myself.” The photoshoot gave her a great opportunity to really express herself, and she loves the result. “I honestly have never felt more attractive,” was her reaction to first seeing the album. “I was shocked. I look so in love and confident. Every person should be able to see themselves in that light. It is really eye-opening.”

We at Bored Panda say cheers to Stephanie and Arryn, who plan to wed in early 2019, and to Bria for capturing the connection, emotion and chemistry between them. Bria told Healthline that the couple had made her job seem easy. “The connection they share is truly inspiring, even to me. It has always been my hope as a photographer to show people the beauty that they hold, and I feel like I’ve done this here. I am a firm believer in love. Size, race, religion, and sexuality are all things that are at times used to divide us, but at the end of the day, we all just want to be loved. I think that’s why these photos have become so popular. Above all else, you can see the love that these two share.”

Oh god, if she hadn't posted it online nobody would be any the wiser and it would be a nice private memory, but because it's online I feel compelled to reply. I get the feeling that nowadays just because someone is big it MUST be immediately beautiful. Well everybody likes different things and personally I think this is a lovely private album but I'm not too keen on looking at it. There.

Thank God someone said it! I hate these kind of publicized photos that should be kept private... not meant for everyone's eyes! I'd never do this, let alone show EVERYONE on the internet! It's great that she has the confidence as a plus size woman to do this kind of photo shoot... but she should've kept them private, really!

I agree that all women should accept themselves as they are and be self-confident. But I don't see why a woman should get half naked in front of the camera and publish her photos to show herself and the others she became self-confident.

Sometimes I wonder if people who do these things are really that self-confident, since they are clearly still looking for strangers' attention and approval. I feel like people who are truly satisfied are the ones we'll never hear of, because they don't need to tell anyone. But that's just me, too.

I don't get why people have this urge to make semi-erotic photos when they get engaged. Is this something they send to family or what? I wouldn't want my aunts to see me simulating sex with a wet underdressed guy (or girl). And why do people post them on the internet? It just seems like random erotica.

I grew up an Army Brat in the mid 50s to mid 60s, and Dad was stationed in Alaska, Germany and the US. I worked in the commissary, bagging groceries for tips, and hundreds of couples came through on a regular basis. And what amazed me no end were the short, skinny little NCOs, who were accompanied by Huge wives, who were two-three times their size. It was simply amazing, but they usually tipped great, so it never bothered me. The moral is that "No one size fits all". Its what makes life interesting. Carry on. :D

"I'm always going to be considered plus-size?" That's bull. Nobody is born overweight or obese. You should love yourself no matter your size, but to passively accept that you'll never be fit is to give up on yourself & your health. That's not self-love; it's self-neglect. If you love yourself & your fiance, you should want to be alive for many years to come. To be clear: I'm glad these two have found something so special & are happy. It's great to see people in love. But it's not great to teach our young people that obesity is just an alternate look that should be accepted & not worked on. Love yourself while you work on getting fit, but work on getting fit. We're the first generation projected to have a shorter lifespan than our parents. Obesity plays a central role in that. It's not about fitting into a certain size clothes or other aesthetic factors; it's about your health.

Julia Wilson

Babies that are born to overweight mothers will somewhat inherit their insulin resistance and will have a propensity to be overweight later in life due to that circumstance. You make an excellent point that we as a generation need to start facing the facts and get our weight issues under control, or we may be birthing a next generation with even greater obesity challenges to face. I'm legitimately worried about future humans looking like the WALL-E people... it's entirely possible. The problem is people believe they are making the right health choices when in fact they're destroying their bodies. Nutrition is as political as it gets. I believe I am right and have the body to prove it, but a vegan will passionately disagree with my choices.

Thank you... finally a rational comment. Just because it's a picture on the internet doesn't mean everyone has the right to call her names and be judgmental about her situation. Why can't they just be happy for the couple for their love and their willingness to step outside their box for a day, leave behind the nasty comments and just enjoy being in love? And what is wrong with people in general who feel that being negative is the best response? Just stop it.

Could the changing attitude about overweight women only exist because people are getting fatter and fatter each day? If she was overly skinny or average, would people still compliment her for being brave and beautiful? Why is fatness being spoken about as if it's a marginalized group of people? They receive benefits, mobility scooters and praising, capitalized on by dove in advertising campaigns, but only if they are women of course. I don't know, i feel indifferent about being fat or skinny. But I can't deny that I genuinely get these questions whenever i see the change in social norms.

Why is it suddenly expected by the world that we embrace poor health? Being confident is fantastic, making healthy life choices is even better, and that is what we should be supporting. Sorry world, not every fat chick (and I'm writing this as a fat chick currently choosing to make healthier life choices, so I don't always have to be a fat chick) is a dang hero.

lunanoir69.... I am right there with you sister !! I am 6' tall and big boned like my dad was. When I married in 68, I was skin stretched over bone, weighing in at 167#. My dr said I needed to gain weight. I went to far at 305# then dropped to 197. Dr was happy, I was happy and my husband was happy. I have always eaten a healthy diet, mostly vegetarian with free range chicken, free range eggs and making my own meals. I very rarely eat out. God made us all in his image with different colors and sizes. So all you " people that think you know it all" (and don't), please, for every one, just keep your bad comments to yourself and let every person live their own life. Don't like the post....give it an angry imoje or one that cries and go on with your damn know it all reasoning.!!!

If she was anorexic, everyone would say how unhealthy and uneasthetic she looks... Just saying. People can be beautiful no matter what their size is, but I think this "I'm overweight and happy and nothing is wrong with it and everyone who dares to speak against it is bodyshaming" is not a healthy trend - exactly like the opposite.

There was NEVER any reason to make these pictures public. And she didn't 'win' anything. WHY why why do people think they have to post every little nuance of their lives on social media? It is ridiculous. I don't know these people and frankly I think the photos are kinda gross. Who needs to see two topless people in the mud? NO ONE DOES! They aren't artsy or cutting edge. Nothing new or wow about any of them. And her being a plus plus size woman does not make them any kind of edgy. We see fat people every single day. Not shaming her, she is happy with herself, that's wonderful. PLEASE stop telling me someone "won" the internet or took the internet by storm. IT is NUTS. You want 'engagement' photos, great, take as many as you want. SEND them to the people you want to share them with, but don't subject the rest of the world to them and expect people to say wow you are beautiful, they won't.

I agree with Patricia Elise, you don't like it, don't look at it, don't comment on it... Why do you feel it's okay to subject us to your negative comments? Why must you and people like you say things like "don't subject the rest of the world to them and expect people to say wow you are beautiful, they won't."? You say people shouldn't post things like this in social media, yet you felt the need to post this negative comment... Are you incapable of keeping your negativity to yourself? Mother always said "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything!" This goes for all the other nay sayers and haters.

Exactly... if they were making these as a statement for everyone to be fat, there would be room for argument and name-calling (if that's your bag) but this is about a woman who, by all rights, should be inclined to hide her body due to her size but she stepped out and responded to an ad for these photos with the man she loves. I applaud her courage and beauty. And geez, if you don't have anything nice to say, STFU. (paraphrasing my gramma)

Did the article really ask what is it about these pictures that caused a stir? Obvious answer- excessively overweight/obese woman with a thinner, fitter looking man is always going to catch the eye especially when fat acceptance is the current "it" movement. You see it a lot of places, overweight or obese women feeling extra vindicated if it's a muscular, fit, and/or thinner man on their arm (or on the arm of someone of similar size to them so they can identify with it). I guarantee these photos wouldn't be getting anywhere near the attention they are if the man was also excessively overweight and/or obese. Fat women can claim they like these pictures because of the love in the couple's eyes all they want, but it's obvious by the reactions that it's because of the man being smaller and therefore what they see as closer to an ideal that one of their own has "managed to snag".

Also to all the people saying she shouldn't have done it..Isn't Feminism about accepting whatever decision a women makes???? So why are you criticising her. How many of you have the guts to do what this couple have done? (Also isn't the guy also partially naked?). Guys this is the most beautiful shot I've ever seen.Just look at their eyes...😍😍😍😍😍

This over the top voyeurism is more than a little disturbing IMO. Carnal sexuality? Really? Lol, okay. I'm going to go ahead and assume you're also overweight and overly identifying with the woman picturing yourself with a thinner, fitter man as I'm assuming many of the commentators getting off on these pictures are in the fat acceptance community who sees snagging a guy closer to an ideal weight as some sort of win.

Also, she's pretty and has a smaller waist than hips. Find me an ugly girl who's shaped like pacman and we'll see how the world reacts. This just drips of fake virtue signalling. When a busted couple has this exact same shoot and people still think it's just as beautiful, I'll eat my words and apologize. Plus, the photographer took pains to hide the parts, like tummy, that society deems ugly when big and exposed. All I'm saying is I'm doubtful this is a shining example of "love conquers all".

"Always going to be considered plus-size?" That's not a given. Nobody is born overweight or obese. It's a health risk & needs to be addressed if you intend to be around for your husband and/or kids in the future. You should still love yourself while you work on it, but you shouldn't just accept that it's your fate. Don't get me wrong here: They're a lovely couple & I'm glad they have that something special. I just don't think it's healthy to teach kids & young people that they should accept an unhealthy lifestyle, which is what obesity is. Let the downvotes commence.

I'm sure she's tried diet, exercise, and medication to help her with her obesity. I guess it didn't work, so she gave up trying and resigned herself to the false, populist philosophy that obesity is normal, acceptable, and even beautiful. It's not - it's a disease that will lead its sufferers to an early death. That said, the most I got from viewing the photos was that he's probably going to end up cheating on her with some skinny chick.

Im sure the internet will be won over when diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases hit in a few years. True, beauty is in the eye of the beholder so if her fiance finds her beautiful good for her. But to expect everyone to think obesity is beautiful just seems ridiculous. Body shaming can be psychologically damaging but to encourage an unhealthy body weight is physically damaging.

You make a good point Jen, but for a photographer to post your pictures on their FB page they need your permission, so to call people dumb for saying she should of kept them private is wrong.

Why are people feeling the need to post such private moments via social media therefore making that moment public? There might be a possibility later on she regrets allowing the pics to be public however, there will not be anything she can do about it. I am pretty sure someone had somehow found a way to save the pics to their computer. But it is her life and she can do what she pleases.

"Gross." "Omg how could you? it's beautiful" "Yeah, you jerk!" People do this all the time. Expecting a negative reaction, which will, in turn, bring more positive reaction, putting the first person on blast, and successfully fishing for the compliments they wanted in the first place. That's what's gross.

I understand the message, but it's just not unhealthy. Positive image is not all good since it doesn't really reassure health assessment. Just saying.

I get the "celebrate who you are" angle but there is a thing called BMI. Unless its a medical condition.

The only thing that matters Is how they make each other feel ....over time we all age it's not some ones out side that matters you want some one you grow old with who makes you feel good inside and out .....and she may not have truely seen how much he loves her till these photos ....it doesn't matter what we think it matters what she thinks of her self and her love and relation ship if she felt beautiful in these then she is .....

Love yourself at any size? Absolutely. Be loved at any size? Good on ya. Those are matters of personal preference. Hope this couple has a long and happy life together? Yes. A couple things bug me about this though: "wondering why my stomach wasn’t the way it was ‘supposed’ to be,”. Ummm, I think she knew even then. Everybody does. It's not rocket science. “Over the years, I’ve come to accept that I am always going to be considered plus-size". Health is independent of societal values and biology doesn't give a damn about your self esteem. I'm calling 100% BS on the "Why am I like this? I guess that's just the way it is" drivel. Eating very healthy might not give you abs, but you won't be well overweight or obese. Severe thyroid conditions are incredibly rare compared to the % of people who use it as an excuse. Find me an obese person who eats nothing but a proper amount of fresh fruits/veggies/lean proteins. I'll wait.

I know in today's touchy feely would we must all try and be PC, but what we have here is one morbidly obese woman. Stop pussy footing around with "plus size" etc, she is fat, very fat, and 99.99% of the time that is caused by eating too much. Yes, I know some people have problems with hormones and thyroids, but most fatties simply eat to excess over their bodies requirements. Remember, did you ever see pictures of fat people coming out of Auschwitz, Birkenau etc. at the end of WW2? Correct.

In my opinion, she's pretty, but let's be honest, being heavy like that isn't healthy and shouldn't be on display for the world to see as if it's ok. I find it sad how we glorify "self-acceptance" when really we're glorifying a lack of self-control. It seems we're teaching our children that having a lack of self-control and eating until you're fat is ok. Just accept yourself for who you are and be proud! This is the sad state of America today and why our healthcare system is overloaded and why we have rampant self-inflicted diseases, i.e., diabetes in this country.

So the message is be proud of yourself, but just as long as you hide it?

I am impressed with the photos not just because she looks great and confident , but often you see engagement pics that look a little too staged and artificial. The romantic setting outdoors+ it gives a really strong love vibe the way that they look at each other

My lad dumpeecme after a four day relationship. He was skinny and 6ft. I am curvy and 5"4. So this post isnt true for everyone. I am a strong believer that love comes in all shapes and sizes, but I am not sure for myself. I let people in and I always get hurt. But I wish this couple all the best and the album is like a magical fairytale. Im british and curvy, so hopefully I can find someone who is geeky understanding and not judgemental. But for now I will just focus on my life and everyone who is involved in it. Love will come when fate or destiny decides x wish everyone good luck and happiness in whatever they do, and remember buying cannot bring you happiness XD

Sooooo basically, people are just being salty because many people who happen to be on the bigger size, finally have the courage to show pictures of themselves online, and then they literally rip them apart via hate? Gee why does this seem almost identical to some OTHER group of people who in recent years have gotten more and more support? Seems like some things never change.

I think the album is awesome and I give her mad Props for having the courage to do it. Keep up the positive thinking regardless of what anyone else has to say or think.

the world is a funny place. photos like this emerge and people are making comments about it negatively. however when a man has a sex change to become a woman its a brave thing and acceptance becomes woman of the year. give me a fucking break. how about this, how about they post whatever they want to post and everyone keep thier fucking opinions to themselves rather than sharing YOUR opinions to the rest of the world. give me a break people. I have no problem with this pic btw.

I think it’s wonderful. What do you know of her back story? I’ve been battling diabetes and obesity my whole life. It is literally genetic in our family. I have lost around 30 pounds and i have a dream of getting nude photos done when i can bring my knees up to my chest. It has nothing to do with other people’s opinions. It’s about accomplishing something that makes me feel good about myself.

Promoting being unhealthy is everything but inspirational. Good for her to get a man who loves her, a few years less than she won't be that fat because she will die much more earlier than necessary... Being fat is not healthy at all. Normally people attracted to healthy body forms, it is an evolutional advantage. It is time to think about change to a vegan healthy diet and get rid of that 50 lbs of fat and living a better life without being half dead at the top of a 5 storey building without elevator and so on.... The other part is being naked on a lakeside with the man of my life would be my personal memory, not for the people of the internet around the world... Time to think about changing your habits instead of accepting your laziness about your consuming habits... It makes me sad...

Well she might be plus sized, but her curves are in ALL the right places. She's a beautiful woman and I'm happy they are so much in love. I think the pics were sweet and sexy. Much happiness in the future.

I am really disappointed. Not that the young lady is confident in herself....but because these pictures promote premarital intimacy, and the sharing of what should be private, between husband and wife.

I think this is great! Has she been a skinny woman or a body building woman that shows themselves almost completely naked with only their nipples covered and a tong between the crack of their ass hiding bery little! Everyone would be loving the photos! She is a beautiful woman and is in love with her man. Perhaps if u have issues with it then maybe u should show pics of yourselves with the people u love on the internet either. Keep those pictures private. Nobody wants to see those eirher

The news is reporting the model was fired from her job due to the photo shoot.
