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.
In my 20’s I was a serial Bridesmaid. Every couple of months (or more) some friend or family member was getting married. Often I was a Bridesmaid, or I had some role in the Wedding. Here are a few of the wackiest requests that I received from Brides.
Short Hair, Bride Cared
A good friend from college announced her engagement and asked me to be a Bridesmaid, with one tiny request. I had short hair. Really short. At the time it was chin length, and had been various shorter styles for all the years that she knew me. All of the other Bridesmaids had long hair, at least past their shoulders. With 11 months notice before the wedding, the Bride asked me to grow out my hair so that all of the Bridesmaids could have matching updo hairstyles. So I did. The day after her wedding, my hair was cut 8 inches, back above my chin.
