Nobody ever said a wedding day was without a few imperfect moments. Sometimes these moments are stressful, and other times they are just down right hysterical. As professional as wedding photographers are, they have their small moments of insanity on wedding day.
Trying to gather groups of people in order to check off all the bride’s “must have shots” can be a challenge. That is why it’s easy for us to laugh at the absurd things they sometimes say to get that perfect shot.
When talking to the couple….
If you want the bride and groom to walk away from you while holding hands that’s fine. Directing them into that pose by saying “I want to get you from behind” is just a little creepy.
We’ve all heard of, and fear, a Bridezilla. You know, a bride who wants everything her way and will make everyone’s life around her a nightmare if it doesn’t happen. On the flip side there is also the term Bridechilla, referring to a bride so chill that she just lets the day unfold around her with no complaints. A new term that you may not have heard: Bridesmaidzilla.
For the purposes of this article we are defining Bridesmaidzilla as a Bridesmaid who, knowingly or not, makes the wedding day about them, is extremely rude in general, causes lots of drama, or combines all of the above. Don’t worry though, we’re here to tell you stories so you can figure out if you have the potential to be a Bridesmaidzilla, and if so, how to avoid it.
