Shooting weddings gets more demanding and complicated every year. There is always some new trend or fad to get your head around. Recently I’ve found that the unexpected return of massive meat-eating dinosaurs to the UK is playing havoc with my carefully planned and executed wedding memories photo-art shoots.
Who’d have thought that after 200 million years of extinction, dinosaurs would return, only to spend their Saturday afternoons at some sorry excuse for a venue in Kent. Mentalists!
Dinosaurs are big and dangerous and have a habit of turning up at the most inopportune moments. Last week as the bride and groom exited the Church they stepped in a steaming, freshly laid, Tyrannosaurus Rex stool that had been deposited on the doorstep. Poor bride stank like Jurassic dung all day.
It seems that at virtually every wedding I’ve shot this year a rampaging dinosaur turns up during the group photos. It’s hilarious when the guests realise there is a gigantic prehistoric reptile behind them. They always panic and run towards the camera. This makes for some highly amusing images that they’ll treasure forever. These photos won’t ever date or appear incredibly naff or tedious or embarrassing or tediously naff or embarrassingly tedious. Oh! how we laughed at our zany tomfoolery.
