OneWed recommends adding the “jumping groomsmen” to the do-not-take list

Have you seen the photo? The one of all the groomsmen jumping up in the air? What about that other one, you know, the one where the beautiful bride holds a fake mustache up to her perfectly made-up faced? What about that one in front of the local landmark that you’ve never actually visited?

A lot of photographers have go-to photos that they like to take to help loosen up the bridal party. There are also photos that become popular in a certain area, or with a certain group of people, so photographers get in the habit of taking them. But remember, it’s your wedding. If you know that you don’t want photos in front of a big chicken, or with a fake mustache, then tell the photographer up front.  The same way that you have a “Do Not Play” list for your DJ or band, it’s perfectly ok to have a “do not take” list for your photographer. Just make sure you save time by sharing that list with the photographer before your wedding day.

    I couldn’t agree more…. I need a photographer who is so ashamed to have ever taken one of those photos that they say 10 hail mary’s each night….and they aren’t even Catholic.
