Say hello to John Awesome and Nydia Hernandez. The Orange County, California couple were in Holy Jim Canyon last week having engagement photos taken with photographer Janet Wheeland when they ran into a reeaaaaaallly unexpected sight.
No, not a deer or a even a bear. A FRIGGIN' METAL BAND.
It turns out the local black metal group was in the midst of doing their own photoshoot, inspired by the full moon. Wheeland spotted the band and beckoned them over to her engagement shoot with Awesome and Hernandez, and the result was, well, EPIC.
"When you run into a black metal band in the woods during your engagement session you ask them to join in," photographer Janet Wheeland told BuzzFeed.
Wheeland even did a special mini-shoot with the band.
As it turns out, groom John Awesome used to be in a metal band, so it was kind of destiny that the band happened to be there.
"Awesome even said 'I wish those guys were with us for our whole photoshoot,'" recalled Wheeland. "It was a perfect, spontaneous finale. We couldn't have planned it better."
