Although a picture may be worth a thousand words, these example of bad wedding photography left me speechless. I am not talking about photos of the worst weddings or gowns or bad examples of themes…. I am talking about the actual photography. The pictures where a trained, professional photographer should never dare to go.
Why is the bride superimposed in the center of a rose? It may sound quaint and possibly romantic when described but, the end result is tacky and forced.
Perfectly posed looking out the window and yet, the photographer failed to notice the workmen in the background. Lets hope there was a re-take. Even still, the lighting is all wrong, along with just about everything else
One more time, pay attention to what is going on in the background.
I’m not sure I understand the significance of the tiny groom in the shoe.Maybe someone was trying to be clever. Trying to be clever and unique is a bad idea unless you are a skilled professional.
How about a tiny little bride sitting in the groom’s hand. Even worse, there is water squirting up into her nether regions….. I don’t get it.
This man has the choice of two brides, a tiny bride and a regular sized one. Why are there two brides?
Adding ethereal backgrounds is lazy… and weird.
and why are there a bunch of roses in between the bride and groom?
and the winner is…………….. (drumroll, please)
A bride, superimposed on a bunch of roses, looking at herself in various poses. Is this narcissism at it’s worst (look at me) or perhaps a bad photographer who talked this woman into a photo she didn’t quite understand. I’m with her, I have no idea what this is about.
Okay, just one more…. seriously?
When you book your wedding photographer, make sure you have a clear understanding of what to expect and their specialty. Talk to their past clients, look through their photo albums, and if any of these photos show up, run as fast as you can!
