In recent years, couples have been getting more and more creative with their engagement photoshoots. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment, so why celebrate it the way every other couple does? Or so the thinking goes.

But Vanessa Lawson and Josh Morden of Toronto couple went above and beyond in their engagement shoot, with a theme most people wouldn’t call very romantic: the Friday the 13th slasher movie series.

“You could say we have a flair for the dramatic,” Lawson told Yahoo Shine.“We have an insane collection of horror films at home — I guess it’s a bond that we share.”

The horror-loving couple took to the woods along with photographer Brandon Gray – and an actual Jason Voorhees in a hockey mask. The photoshoot quickly turned into a full-on blood fest, and Vanessa and Jason couldn’t be happier.
