Wedding photography

I wanted to talk about this for a long time...everytime I attend a wedding I find the whole video & photography process utterly hilarious! I just watch it from the begining to end because it's really amusing and funny....

people laughing nervously,hugging awkwardly,kissing the bride mumbling some bullshit and smiling at the camera,undecided whether to hug or just handshake the bridegroom then finally ending up doing something like a half hug-humping...sweating,fidgeting,hair and dress fixing,nervous laughs and flirts...

It's all a fake...

The wedding day is one of the most important moments of a couple's life...but in here,it's just an acting...cameraman directs and everyone act the way he says...

He says to put the ring slowly,and sometimes to stop halfway to capture a photo,and he says to smile...what the hell?it's your man or woman!you're going to put the wedding ring in her ring finger for the first time and you do it on someone else's command?those people are mad!it's cameraman's job to capture the right moment!why do u pay for him if that d*head can't do his job properly?duh!

And just look at the whole kissing and hugging session...if cameraman couldn't get the pic in the right angle he tells them to hug again,and kiss again...just insane!all acting!no real talk or emotions in those...that happened to me one day.and I had to kiss the groom twice cos my face was covered from the first angle.(not that I minded,he was a one handsome,mind blowing guy! lol)but that was awkward...

And when the cake or milkrice is cut,couple has to hold that whatever piece near his or her mouth,smiling like a complete idiot until the camera clicks!again... Acting!

This system should be changed...I've decided,if I get to marry someone oneday I will only let the photographer take group photos with relations,and several photos of the couple,i.e. Only me and him.no awkward kissing and acting,no poruwa ceremony videos or pics,no cake cutting pics...those should be stored in our minds and recall without embarrassment.

This crossed my mind today cos I'm going to a wedding tomorrow,and to witness the same catastrophe.shame eh?hmm and I hate to attend wedding without the people and relations I like cos it's boring to sit and watch the drama,inhaling the nauseaous perfumes and earsplitting music and all the fakeness sorrounding....hmm what to do...it's a must.i'm glad my brothers going to be there....oki then,c ya.people who's planning to marry soon,just keep this in your mind...it's your day,do it your way!

Well this is a nice topic of discussion! I agree to ur argument partially. Snaps which show true emotions and fake posing both do u some good when u reach a certain age in ur life.

Yep,too true

This is so true. I had the same issue. I was on the verge of getting married (but ended up as a failed relationship), and had discussions with some photographers. This is what my requirement was

“This is our day. Don’t think this as some sort of a friggin movie you are directing. I am fine with portraits and other crap. But whatever the traditions going on, we are not gonna rush, slow down or re-do just because you say so.”

Aaw...I'm glad that you guys agree with me! :-D

Dami Roxx said...

lolzz ... one day god bless your husband ... seriously ... :P

Totally agreed! It's photographers job and they should have capture the right movement without damage the processes, but unfortunately photographers are trying to save there time and cover their professional inabilities these days because for the quick money. Also I have seen many people desperately going after some photographers and worshiping them like demi-gods, hope their the one who ruined the industry by making them popular.

heh heh anyway...Its hilarious as you said and like the radicalize and true color of the post....keep it up.

P.S. Once I did nice job (just for hobby) for one of my friend's wedding without harm the process and they were came so naturally (they have submitted them to the "HI" and "Esteem" mags I hope)....I'll send you a link via FB , check them and let me know how much should improve our professionals on the field. :-)

Are you marry without wedding? It will be cost effective . But majority of Girls and their parents expect big wedding ceremony

Did you check rathuhettakari mail?

poppy said...

No No.I didn't mean that.I'm just reluctant to certain parts in wedding ceremonies.
Yep checked mails.the mail u r talking about was in spam folder,which I rarely check.sorry....I'll consider that offer ....

මම නම් හිතාගෙන ඉන්නේ පැපරාසියෙක්ව හයර් කරන්න එතකොට ඌ අපිට වදයක් නොවී හොඳ ෆොටෝ ටිකක් අරන් දෙයි නේ :-)

poppy said...

Hehe.Best idea ever!mare maru!!

dazzled said...

well , I have several opinions on marriage ceremonies .. the most disgusting one is its like a weird way of informing all you know that you are gonna have sex 'tonight'! :P and its like dressing yourself up and posing for a freekish exhibition where you are the exhibit .. every one comes to see and evaluate everything form head to toe to table deco .. the most ridiculous thing these days is the most discussed topic at the wedding ceremony is not the 'couple' , its all about the bridal dresser , cake artist and the flower decorator you have hired ! ( oh I forgot, the saree , whether it is bought from india or from a local shop!)

personally I would rather but a comfy king size bed and install remote controlled bedroom lighting system rather than spending for a wedding ceremony !

poppy said...

Yepeeee.....Totally agree with you!!!!!!!well I defa need a remote controller,I'm too lazy to walk and switch off the light when I'm sleepy.lol
