Wedding portraits are nothing new!!!!! Below is a picture from my granparents wedding in 1931!!!!!! My grandfather’s nephew (who is 84 now) just sent this to me – I have other pictures, but never saw this one with my great-grandparents!!!!!

Very cool! Although they don’t look very happy!

@jenilynevette: I think it was the way it was done back then…all pictures from that era are in that same mode (but just wedding pictures for some reason)
my grandparents were married just short of 50 years when my grandfather passed away; I still can hear in my mind, my grandmother screaming the day he passed “he’s gone, what will I do without him…” We all should be so lucky.

@dkacerek: I love old photos!! Everything must have been so serious back then. You don’t see a lot of smiles in old photographs.
Love the picture! Thanks for sharing it! Look at the size of her boquet!!!

Love it! You’re right, in many ways, little has changed in terms of wedding portraits! Love her veil! Do you know where they got married?
My grandparents are about the same era, but it occurs to me I don’t think I’ve seen pictures of their weddings! I’ll have to ask my parents…
Thank you for sharing!

The expressions are due to the fact that photographs were very long exposures back then. The subjects would have to hold their pose for several minutes up to several hours. Also, a lot of the time, they had these sort of back braces that reached the floor and clamped the back of their neck to ensure the held their position/good posture for the whole exposure. So yeah, you wouldnt likely be smiling either, lol. Just a little photo history from a photo nerd 🙂
