21 Hilariously Awkward Stock Photos of Brides

bride portrait, photos of bride, wedding photo tips

Singin' in the rain of the waterfall into my flower bouquet microphone totally natural no big.

Being a bride is a special occasion in a woman’s life, and since it only happens up to five times, it’s important to photograph each occasion well. God, I remember my beautiful wedding — it was the only good thing about my marriage. Even though my relationship didn’t work out, I still think fondly about what a lovely bride I was, and I have some wonderful pictures that pay homage to that special day my body was its thinnest and my hair its biggest. Not every bride is so lucky, though. In spite of the bride’s and photographer’s best intentions, some portraits of the woman-of-the-hour just turn out to be super-duper awkward. (About as awkward as using the phrase super-duper, in fact.)

If you’re a bride-to-be, take warning from these photos below. It’s best to avoid awkward settings like a forest, stream or torture chamber when crafting the perfect portrait. Also, try to minimize the use of props:

    If I weren't such a helpless female, I'd actually get up from here and go on with the ceremony without earrings, but because I'm afraid I'm not pretty enough, I guess I'll just stay here and weep.
