Couples

Monday, January 17, 2011


I'm crazy about Jon Huck's work! He photographs real people and there is nothing better than that! Those photos are from a series called Couples and it features 140 people in relationships. The amazing thing is that most of the couples share striking and undeniable physical resemblances (especially the third one). Do you believe that couples in long-term relationships start to resemble each other after a while? Dears, what's your take on it? I would love to know. xoxo

P.S: More of Jon's work.
P.P.S: The lovely Christianna featured me today. Pop over here if you would like to have a look!

This is so cool! Jon's work is really great!! I'm off to check out more now...

Happy Monday Darling! Have a good week?

rebecca said...

i think couples definitely start to dress alike, sound alike, etc. these couples are adorably cute together.

E. Charlotte said...

Those are great photos! :) They'd be fun to go through and see the resemblances.

Claire Kiefer said...

you're not kidding about the couples starting to resemble each other. But maybe it's not just couples--yesterday I said to one of the people I was babysitting for, "Sonia's mom came by--I knew cause she looks just like Sonia!" and Jeannette said, "That's funny cause Sonia is adopted!" OMG! Seriously.

DB said...

That's really cool! Really bizarre and spooky...But cool!

these are lovely! i definitely think couples start to look like each other. not sure if that actually happens or if we are initially drawn to people who look like us.

Deidre said...

Whoa - they really do look like each other don't they! Amazing.

Brittany H. said...

You know, before I read at the bottom what you said about how couple #3 looked alike, I was thinking the same thing! Thanks for sharing these Diana, they're super neat!

Nicola said...

these are amazing! :) great find.

Sara Szatmary said...

I love this! Yes, I do think couples tend to look alike. Maybe not their face/hair, but definitely their style.

Ps: Would love to see one of these with you and your sweetheart ;)

photohogger said...

AhMazing!
Love it; and yes that 3rd couple look seriously alike!
I'd have to say couples tend to resemble each other after a while.
Hahaha, kind of like dogs and their owners?

Christianna said...

Thanks so much Diana for being my interview of the week!

Evie said...

I have noticed that my friends who have been in relationships with the same person for a while definitely start to look alike. It's weeeeeiiiirrrrddddd how that happens!

Nicole Jeannette said...

Hmm, such an interesting concept!! I don't know... I don't feel like my parents look much alike, but I think they do things like hand motions when they talk that are similar!

sbot said...

Hmm, I think it can be true of some couples but not all.

That is weird. Do you think it depends how much you like what you look like? i.e. if you think you're gorgeous you pick someone who looks like you. ;-)

Tay Talk said...

100%

My parents have completely different looks yet have meshed beautifully over years of marriage.

These photos are brilliant!

La Feem said...

I've always said couples tend to look like each other....I think like attracts like a lot of times in the land of love. xo

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

This is fabulous! Couples really do start to look alike, don't they?

Hope u had a wonderful weekend, sweetie! xoxo

Mandee said...

those couples are so cute together! I love this idea and its pretty interesting that they do in fact resemble each other!

P.S. You always come up with the cutest things to post! I'm loving it!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

HA - yes I have always thought couples that will last have similiar looks; Whether it is a characteristic or coloring.

I am half asian and half dutch and my husband is french and yet we seem to match.

Lisa Griffin said...

Melanie's Randomness said...

I used to be taken for my ex's sister all the time. We only had 1 nationality different between us & 2 similar. Both brown eyes & brown hair with a lil red tint. It was a lil creepy. =P

style'n said...

Another creative post! I love this and I want to do this with my hubby! I do think couples start to resemble each other over the years for sure.

Galit said...

Such a great photographic idea and those photos are so sweet!!
I can only say that as much as I love my man, I hope I won't develop any physical resemblances to his... Don't get me wrong - is the most handsome man in the world, I just prefer my attributes, you know... :)

LyddieGal said...

I think it proves that deep down, everyone is really just looking for themselves.

quintessence said...

Fascinating!! Yes the 3rd couple have an amazing resemblance. I don't think my husband I look alike but sometimes I think he looks like the dog - does that count?!

Sandy a la Mode said...

oh wow!! this is soo great! i am a strong believer that couples tend to start looking like each other as they grow older together! it's pretty cool!!

Grigore Roman said...

Wow, great couples :) Great job !

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I love these pictures! I have always wondered if couples end up looking more and more alike. i can't decide if I believe yet or not...

marissa said...

everyone says that my boyfriend and i look alike....dark features, big smiles, etc. maybe we're all secretly attracted to ourselves!

little t said...

I agree- definitely the third one down!!

Kristina said...

Thats cool!
I read somewhere that the partner you chose has mostly the same facial proportions then yourself. So I do believe that there are undeniable physical resemblances :)
Viele Gruesse, Kristina

Paul & Paula said...

i don't know but it always freaks me out, a bit, when a couple looks like brother and sister! so weird

heidi adnum said...

Love it! Thanks, Diana :)

Oh, My Darling said...

I totally believe that couples often sorta look like each other. Weirdly enough, I had a conversation with a friend about this theory very recently!

Monica from Hola!design said...

hahaha yes, the third couple look like brother and sister!

Annie said...

I think people definitely tend to be attracted to people who resemble them somewhat.. I think that's more common than people looking very different. This series is really fun!

Roxy Te said...

This def makes you think! And I say yes! I think sometimes people start to look like each other or maybe even there dogs hahah

TheChambrayCountess said...

Very cool and interesting! Love this!

Diana Mieczan said...

That is incredible, Claire!!

Diana Mieczan said...

Sara, I wil try to take a few photos of us and post them:) And Kristina, I also read something like that. Its so interesting, isnt it?

shopgirl said...

This is cool. I remember reading something many years ago about how people are attracted to their own physical features. So, the physical similarity begins in the attraction phase....according to the unofficial studies.

:-)))

Yaima said...

I dont think i could ever look like my hubby he is blond and handsome jajaja just madly in love sorry... kisses

oh,henry! said...

you know, they also say we choose our partners by our parents.. so go figure now...
love it anyway!

coolkids said...

wow! this is too cool. My husband and I do have similar qualities. My sister and her husband could pass as brother and sister! weird.:)

its simple love said...

I always joke about how we marry people with like features of our own because everyone is a little narcisitic and we like the fact that we marry a mirror-like image of ourselves.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

I think it does happen, although a lot of time it's that you adopt one another's mannerisms rather than actual physical characteristics (well, that's my take on it anyway!)

We do have friends that have been together 10+ years and are often--ackwardly--mistaken for brother and sister.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I've definitely seen that and how people can say that about people who aren't related either.
I've always shied away from partners who have a similar nose to mine because I've always disliked it!
