People make a big fuss about their wedding pictures and it’s understandable.
First off, they are the most visual link to that once-in-a-lifetime (okay, maybe twice or thrice) day when your love is consecrated in the eyes of your family and friends and even cousins you never knew you had. Plus, let’s be brutally frank here, it costs a helluva lot of money to get all of those shots of the bride and groom standing in front of the blooming dogwood tree out behind the catering hall, right?
You’re damn right it does. Wedding photography is big big business and people count on those photographers to capture their super special event for posterity.
However, like it or not, a lot of wedding pictures look the same to all but the most discriminating eyeball. And unless you really get off on looking at yourself over and over again in your dress or your tux, chances are that after the first fifty flips through the old photo album, you won’t look at them much except maybe once
a year a decade.
BUT. And this is a big but. BUT…if you happen to be the proud owner of just one picture from your big day in which a totally outrageous photobomb took place and a crazy uncle, or better yet, a complete stranger in a Speedo, just so happened to enter the frame at the perfect moment and now lives on forever in photo form, consider yourself extremely lucky, my friend.
For it is that photo and that photo alone which you will return to again and again, to show your friends, to share with as many people as possible on the internet, and which will bring you more joy than all of the other pictures combined.
So gather round please and let us raise a glass in toast to the greatest wedding pictures ever taken!
