Anyone who has ever planned a wedding has at one point realized the importance of having a good photographer. You look at how much money is being spent, think about all the folks traveling from all over, and it becomes clear that not having legit documentation would be a tragedy.
And anyone who’s ever been anywhere near a wedding has experienced what is captured in this video. Now you might be tempted not to watch it, but someday you’ll be old and will regret that choice.
When it came to our wedding, my first and most important request was that there would be no campy wedding photographer hijinks. No Easter baskets full of bridesmaids. No pretending we’re on a trampoline. No Photoshop shenanigans. No freaking pyramids!
I can tell you this was clearly explained to our photographer, but alas, the day came and I was unprepared for the pure insanity that was inflicted on my loved ones. I mean it was so bad I keep expecting Ashton Kutcher in a trucker hat to pop from a the bushes all like “Dude! Hilarious!” Two years later, I’ve found a way to laugh at these photos. Many of you have already seen photos from our cruelty-free wedding on Offbeat Bride, but today you’re going to see two never before released director’s cut photos and get a chance to win a FREE t-shirt from Herbivore Clothing Company!
Our buddy Josh Hooten over at Herbivore Clothing designed the best wedding invitations ever for our special day, and so it only seems fitting that we’d celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary by sending more Herbivore awesomeness out into the universe!

* This title might be only funny if you’ve seen Superman II and are clicking on the links in this post where I am comparing wedding photographers to General Zod. But even if you are a normal person who has better things to do than remember quotes from amazing 80s superhero movies… this is still an awesome contest!
** Dear 90s – I miss you so much.
