@Pinkmoon:  Isn’t that funny, I LOVE that type of photo. The more artsy fartsy the better for me. 😛

This isn’t a specific photo, but I don’t like the ones that have the black or white fuzzy round “frame” around it (I believe it’s called a vignette). A couple we’re friends with had engagement pictures taken and probably 3/4 of them had that and I thought ugghh is that the only effect your photographer knows how to use? They also make me think of this lol

I hate the “posed laughter” pics that I’ve seen of the bride with her BMs.  Natural laughter captured on film is beautiful and classic; the BMs fake-laughing at something that the bride fake-said is not!  And don’t think we can’t tell!

This seems like a newer trend from what I’ve noticed, but I hate the ones where the bride and groom are facing away from each other, sometimes arms crossed, looking like they just had an argument.  Why on Earth do you want to look pissed off in your wedding photos?!  Too emo for me.

I actually told my photographer “hey I hate my double chin- if you can not take any lower angle shots I’d be eternally grateful.” lol

I don’t like it when they ask the bridesmaids etc. to throw their bouquets in the air.  Those things are expensive!

@HappilyEverAfter54:  Oh no no no no! Any photographer should know a woman should NEVER be photographed from below regardless of her size. It just isn’t flattering!!!!

Ditto the jumping. I just don’t get it and it’s NOT flattering to anyone.

Also…the one where the bride is “holding” the groomsmen back from…running away? I guess?

Like this:

Note: I also hate it as a cake topper, so I’m consistent, lol. I wanted to post a caketopper bc I didn’t want to offend if I snagged someone’s photo, since I do have a friend who did this. I’m pretty sure her photog suggested it and they just went with it; it’s soo not her. :/

And uh, this just made me laugh. I found it when searching for the “runaway groom” pic I posted above.

Not trying to threadjack! Sorry!

Runaway Groom & Bridezilla – Brilliant!

I personally am tired of seeing the pictures where the bridesmaids are holding the groom up and the groomsmen are holding the bride up. And the Charlie’s Angels poses.. sorry if anyone likes those!

@September29:  I completely agree with the Backstreet Boys pose! That made me laugh! A friend of mine did that for his pictures and it makes me laugh everytime I see it!
