Who in their right mind would ever think this is a good photo?

You may laugh, but often brides, grooms, or even bridesmaids and groomsmen have 'ideas' that they just GOTTA try. They are usually something that you totally wouldn't do, but at the same time you don't want to be a party pooper. So you get the shot and move on. I have hundreds of those kind of shots in my library that makes me cringe.

We did that for this (external link) wedding, and actually shot a lot of things we wouldn't normally do. Turned out well. It's definitely taught us to keep a more open mind to this stuff.

For me, it happens more often that it is the mother of the bride with the suggestions.

Yea, gotta agree with previous posters about this being a suggested shot. I have had more than one person with a camera and a vision suggest shots I didn't think were great but if I have time I am more than happy to shoot. Occasionally I even like the shot, this would not have been one of those times.

3 of my last 5 weddings, someone suggested that B&G each popout their heads from behind a tree... I just go along, easier to do it quickly and get it over with....

last year, shooting a wedding for a cousin (for almost free too)... someone made a suggestion, but made it to me... I replied with 'go ahead, there's a camera in your hand!'
I don't remember the pose, but it was something cheesy... and I wouldn't have said that on a paying job!

Am I the only one who noticed an awful lot of shots on that site had the Olan Mills watermark?
