I stopped shooting weddings a long time ago. But, my son got married at the end of June, and they could not afford a wedding photographer. So, I had one more wedding to shoot.

 

The group shots, I remember well, and this was no differant. Told them to smile, counted it off, and then tried a second and third time, with this being the last.

So, I thought a bit, and remembered a trick. So, I told them on three, say cheese! But, when I counted it off, I yelled another word, can't say it here, but this is what happened when they heard it. this is right at the realization of what they heard. After this image, there are a few the they totally lost it.

And after a few seconds this came about.

Thanks, Dennis.

I used to do several a year but it took to much out of me. I am doing one as a favor next year and its an outside wedding they are a bit easier to do.

Yeah, weddings are tough. I rather hike a Mountain.

My son told me later, in that second picture he was thinking; oh s---, did my dad actually said that?

Lol 😂 😎

Thanks everyone

Nice series, and story, Dennis.

 

I learned this lesson when my Dad got a friend to photograph our wedding.  His pal showed up a few sheets to the wind, and some of the shots looked more like a police line up.  I remember that, any time that I'm tempted to say "yes".  :)
