The image of a modern wedding

Via the good women of IndieBride, check out some most excellent examples of wedding photography. Man, these are beyond awesome. I am a lonely broken branch floating on the rough, gray, foam-flecked sea of missed opportunity.

Tricksy! False!

Looking up from a skirt. That you don't see every day.

An ex-girlfriend, do you suppose?

Observe, if you will, the last line.

Woah.

Yay! You're back!! How was it all? Did it all go well? Do you have pics? Any funny stories?

Want to see your pictures, although sadly there won't be any "cowboy hat wearing drinking together inside a champagne glass" masterpieces.
Oh, I went to that site? And I'm amazed they're still in business. CANNOT POSE. They made that poor woman look like a tank...and while she may be large, there's no reason to have her facing the camera, arms limply at her sides, creases running beneath her boobs.
NOT COOL.
Ugh. I think I need to go flip through some flickr albums to cleanse those images from my mind.

What was in those champagne flutes? Industrial sludge? Yikes!

The face in the sky looking down at the church made me think in a burpy way about excessively sentimental bad Victorian poetry about some dead wife regretfully blessing her husband's new marriage from beyond the grave.

As for the face peeking out from the bridal skirt...man, I thought I'd seen some disturbing imagery in surrealist art, but that takes the cake! Hint to the photographer: you are not Man Ray. For the love of all that's holy, please don't try to be him again.

Welcome back, Riona! Do tell us the details of your big day when you get the chance.

And thanks. I needed this laugh this morning.

Twistie, re the contents of the champagne flutes: I think they are drinking bile.

Thank you to everyone for the congrats and the nice comments!

Hahaha Did not even notice the champagne sludge!

Twistie said...

The sludge mesmerized me.

Awful shots, for the most part. I guess "to each his own". Somebody must like them.

Is this dude blind or just stuck in some terribly strange universe of bad taste? I thought the "peeking-over-the-pew-bridesmaids was interesting? I'm trying to decide what he was trying to say with that idea.To think he makes a living doing this... shudder...

i just ran across your blog and these pictures were hillarious!!! the first one wouldn't be bad if it were all in color or all in black and white, but the way they divided it just makes me think "mirror, mirror, on the wall"...the rest of them were just plain awful! i am not sure why in the world you would want to superimpose a face into your pic.

Hys.TERICAL.
Thanks.

Oh my god, those photos are hilarious. What on earth are those people thinking? The woman's face in the dress and in the sky over the church are just so over the top...thanks for the laugh.

i have some of those, unfortunately. the photographer we hired was supposedly the most modern one in the area. turns out she was- she was mennonite, and it was Amish country. i definitely have photos of us staring down at ourselves from the rafters of the church.
