What Not To Do In Your Wedding Photos

Wedding photos are one of those things that you will carry around with you forever. It is no surprise that the perfect photos you strive for are something you will one day show your children and grandchildren. However, there are always those couples out there that might not realize a photo is a mistake before taking it, and by some strange twist of incorrect fate, they believe it is a good pose. So, while the biggest tips are to be aware of your surroundings and hire a professional photographer, these people missed that apparent memo…

Do Not Make People Regret The Creation Of Photoshop:

Wedding Tips

Do NOT, by any means, hire any photographer that could support the prosecution side for making Photoshop illegal. There are so many things wrong with this image, even if they were trying to be funny. The groom is essentially floating above the water while his bride’s sitting on a children’s bed in the middle of a pond that may or may not be sitting in someone’s front yard. Watch your use of Photoshop, no child wants to ever know their parents were capable of this.

Don’t Promote Violence:

Wedding Tips

While it is never good to promote any type of violence, when it comes to wedding photos, this couple fell seriously short of looking even remotely like the Mob. Of course, no one knows what their intentions of this photo were, probably not even them, but if one thing is certain, it’s that this is what a Men In Black and Mob themed birthday party would look like. While the sunglasses could work, make sure EVERYONE is wearing them (Check the far left bridesmaid). Also, under no circumstances are leather vests over tuxedo jackets okay.

Avoid Every Type Of Photobombing:

Wedding Tips

Not much needs to be said about these photos except for the fact that the photographer must not have been looking through the lens, or even at the people in the frame. Yes, it is funny to be photobombed by wildlife, but make sure it doesn’t get to a point where people might think the animal actually plays an integral role in your relationship.

Try Not To Cause Controversy:

Wedding Tips

There is nothing wrong with being opinionated, but try not to let that reflect in your wedding photos, otherwise you will most likely look like this unlucky couple. Congratulations on your big day, but it is not a good idea to make controversial political statements at the same time. For example, it is not recommended to have Death standing in the frame while holding cardboard cutouts of nuclear weapons… it’s just not cool, and it doesn’t even look that good.

Be Above The Influence:

Wedding Tips

Wedding photos are in total support of expressing the beauty of a couples relationship, not their weekend activities. While this could have been horrible timing, or maybe they thought the spelling would throw people off (does that say ‘snake math’?), it is still not an excuse to publish this photo as a milestone marker. Nice try, but next time, look into finding a different concrete structure for your backdrop.

Look At Your Surroundings – BEFORE:

Wedding Tips

While this may just be the general problem for all these photos, it is one thing verbally asking animal to move versus actual humans. What is even going on here? It almost looks like these newlyweds were photoshopped into an moment that was awkwardly captured on film. Bottom line is, if your photographer will allow this nonsense, then take the picture (at least it’s a good laugh) and get your money back.

Do Not Do This:

Wedding Tips

Okay, so this may be a comical idea for a photo, but the execution is off. Under no circumstances should one of your wedding photos look like a funny “Save The Date” invitation. If it is looking like a “Save The Date” photo, then you must think you are stuck in time, because the date has passed. The idea of the concerned father protecting his little girl is a cute and funny , but one, the bride looks too oblivious to the events occurring, and two, the dad is not even centered. It’s a cute idea, but when it comes to your actual wedding photos, just don’t do this.
