AN ADORABLE couple have posted a gorgeous, in-the-moment selfie that only took 89 attempts to get.
Nikki Hollis posted the supposedly candid shot of her and partner Tom on a beach gazing at a sunset, with a series of hashtags that did not reference the miserable hour the image took to create.
She said: “It’s such a beautiful picture. We’re both laughing and gazing off into the distance, as if we’re contemplating all the joys and adventures we have ahead.
“In reality, we were really pissed off with each other because it was a massive pain in the ar*e to get. I had to balance the camera on a rock, then run back and try look serene rather than like I’d just skidded into position and twisted my ankle.
“And then there was Tom’s face. For about 45 minutes, he seemed unable to do any other expression than ‘constipated’.”
The final shot prompted widespread eye-rolling among the couple’s friends but, crucially, 35 likes on Instagram and 63 on Facebook.
Hollis added: “We are now well into the planning stage of our next ‘natural’ shot.”
