A Minnesota couple loves Costco so much, they decided to take their engagement photos there.

Karinne Tarshish, 27, and Dan Klamet, 30, are getting married in October, according to TODAY. And when they found out their engagement photos were free, they decided to have a little fun.

Tarshish posted the photos, which were taken at the Costco in St. Louis Park, to imgur and Reddit last Thursday, and since then they've gotten a lot of attention. They've been featured on ABC News, the Huffington Post and Refinery 29.

Tarshish explained on Reddit why they took the photos at Costco, saying:

"I didn't like the idea of having the regular engagement pics (or really any, but our photographer offered to do it for free). I thought it would be funny to have pictures of us doing really mundane things, and then decided it would be better to romanticize those mundane things."

She did say the couple took regular engagement photos just in case the Costco ones didn't turn out.

Why do Minnesotans drink so much booze?

The Star Tribune takes a look at the data and, apparently, people in the Upper Midwest really like the liquor. The newspaper says Minnesota, particularly, consistently ranks in the top five states for alcohol consumption. The theories? Many of us trace our ancestry to northern Europe, another land known for heavy consumption. We also seem to be prone to depression. And, yes, the weather might play a part in that.
