[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was in hysterics, watching this wedding photographer at work. Trying to convince the Bride to stand on one leg and wave her arms, the Husband had given up, and refused to take part.

Hello Mike,
A very attractive bride and looking smashing in her wedding dress. What was the point of getting her to stand on one leg and wave her arms? Quite bizarre!

Greetings Michael,

Stephen Nunney is correct. The bride is lovely and the couple just wants some good wedding photos. It is the photographer who should stand on one leg, stretch his arm out and do a selfie with the couple in the background. His request is akin to the famous American photographer's request from the Queen, to sit with full regalia on a horse, inside a room in Buckingham Palace. Wisdom has to prevail at some point.



Hi Michael
She is smiling, but it seems the smile is starting to fade and she too will soon lose patience and interest! I wonder what kind of shot the photographer has in mind to request this kind of pose, haha. Good moment to capture, the bride sure stands out well in this.

Hello Michael
Wonderful photography.
