This Couple Decided To Take Their Engagement Pictures At Costco

By T-Shirt Guy / a couple of years ago

Costco is such a steady part of Minnesota couple Karinne Tarshish and Dan Klamet's routine that they decided to take their engagement pics there. Yes, seriously.

Tarshish and Klamet's family and friends particularly love this shot.

“Neither of us wanted any engagement photos, because it felt really awkward and forced to us,” Tarshish told The Huffington Post. “We barely post any pictures of ourselves online to begin with, and have no framed photos on the walls at home — just artwork. I started joking that the only kind of pictures of us we could do would be of us doing our daily routines.”

This isTarshish's favorite shot from the engagement shoot.

The shoot took place at the Saint Louis Park Costco location on April 25.

“The photos were taken to be funny,” Tarshish said. “We do love Costco, but that isn't why we took the photos. We just wanted to do something that our friends and family would enjoy.”

“Our relationship has been surprisingly easy,”Tarshish said. “We really just enjoy being with each other. We have the same sense of humor, which kind of carries throughout everything we do. We also share similar values, interests and goals, which helps.”

Tarshish and Klamet plan to marry on October 15, 2016. The pair met online in 2011 when Tarshish was a student at the University of Kansas and Klamet was a staff member at a student union there. They got engaged on their third anniversary, March 29, 2014, at the top of the John Hancock Tower in Chicago.

“For years we had been pretending to get engaged on April Fools Day, so we waited a few days to announce our real engagement on April first,” Tarshish said. “I think it threw everyone off, because they weren't sure if we were really engaged or not.”

Tarshish's father got in on the photoshoot fun as well by appearing in some of the shots.

While Tarshish and Klamet are clearly big Costco fans, they don't plan on incorporating the store into their actual wedding day. 

“We aren’t crazies who are going to get a tattoo of the Costco logo or something,” Tarshish told Buzzfeed.
