I’m not a fan of the bride and groom under the veil.  It looks so unnatural!

@FutureMrsOak: LOL that pic is creating an optical illusion the way the veil is positioned, poor girl’s nose looks HUGE!

@singasong: I disagree as a bride and a photog…this photo in particular is showcasing the groom and groomsmen wearing TOMs shoes, which I’m guessing is a detail the bride and groom put thought and money into. It’s not as though there are no other pictures of the groom and groomsmen together…if that were the case then, yeah I can understand where you’re coming from. A lot of detail shots are great because they tell the story of the wedding day.

BW photography where the bride and groom look bruised…. due to saturation, etc…. D: EK! 

I hate it. My Future Brother-In-Law got married recently and ALL their wedding photos were this way. There was one with the couple and it was so edited in BW that I could see the WHITE line on her fake eyelashes and their faces looked bruised.

I don’t like it when people don’t look happy. I’m not saying they should smile in every picture, but I hate when they are trying to do a serious pose and they just look mad.

You can have no smile pictures and still look content or calm without smiling or looking mad/bored/void of feeling.

@photogestelle: i agree that jumping shots look best if everyone is actually in the air. those were the ones i was hoping to get, but it didn’t quite work out for me. so my jumping shot is nice, but its far from one of my fave photos.  but like most of these things, i don’t mind having it and i certainly don’t HATE it!

I cannot stand HDR! It looks so fake to me.  I dislike anything too processed looking, it just does not look real to me.  I like photos that capture things as they are.

(just google hdr wedding photos)  I cannot stand it!

@cbee: HDR wedding… that would be weird, but there are some landscapes that look INCREDIBLE like that. But I would agree, for anything with people in it, it would be weird.

It’s definitely important to think of how your photos are going to look 30 years from now.  What is popular two years ago probably isn’t all that popular right now.  But there is only so much you can future proof your photography.  For weddings I tend to stick to color in vibrant but natural tones, and high contrast black and whites. Most photographers (myself included), love to be as photojournalistic as possible… but it sometimes can be very difficult when you have to juggle expectations of both of the families involved.  Glad everyone is done with selective coloring though!

I’m so over the random items in a field thing (ie couch, etc.) It was cute at first, but now it’s just ridiculous.

I also hate the pictures where the bride and groom are standing there (facing the camera) holding hands and not smiling (it goes with the vintage theme).  Weird and annoying.  I’m also sick of leg shots.
