The Groomsmen Jumping Photo: Enough is Enough

We’ve all seen it: The groomsmen jumping picture.  Sure, it was a tradition created with good intentions, designed to show off how “real men” take pictures, full of spontaneity and excitement.  But face it guys, its been done a thousand times over, and every stuffy photographer out there is suggesting the pose. Honestly, the pictures rarely turn out that great anyway.  There is always the guy who either can’t get off the ground, has to stick his tongue out, or actually believes his jumping skills are going to impress the brides maids. Rule of thumb: If the photographer is suggesting the pose, it’s safe to assume it’s not that original.

In 2010, let’s create some new trends and leave the “jumping picture” behind.  If you’re really looking for something different that justifies spending a lot of money on a picture of your guy friends, try something like:

* All wear dead president Halloween masks
* Quickly switch to AC/DC khaki shorts, or
* Jump off the second story balcony into the bushes

Let’s push the envelope this year and make some memories worth paying for.
