Picture Perfect: Hamming It Up for the Camera

After we got the required, traditional bridal-party and family photos, we decided to kick it up a notch for some more fun photos, but not before everyone went inside and changed their shoes. I don’t mind a bit, even though it does look strange in some of these photos.


That dock made for a great photo opportunity, and while it was a bit overcast so the sunset wasn’t as brilliant as I had hoped, it still looked so pretty.


Remember way back when, when I said I was dead set on having an “outdoor lounge”? Well, it worked out, and I loved it. And people loved to take pictures in it. This is one of my favorite bridal-party photos of the whole day.





When we finally got off the couch, we realized there was a whole river out there, just asking for us to take pictures next to it.


Cam and his buds always do this weird pointing thing. I don’t think it means anything, but they do it everywhere, all the time.

Next up was the obligatory jumping photo, which of course was a major fail.


And finally. The moment you’ve all been waiting for. Remember those pictures that circulated the internet for a while where the wedding party was running away from a dinosaur/other giant scary beast? Someone had the genius idea to reenact that.


Grumpy Cat was not amused by our antics.


I didn’t see a Sharknado in the weather forecast for Charleston that day.


Great Whites often swim inland, right?

BM Mom’s husband is a tech wiz, and he saw what we were doing. Three days later, while on my honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, I received these files via email, and they were perfect. My brother, GM VT, standing on the far left, was not scared by cats, Sharknados, or great whites. He’s just that much of a bad-ass. Also, SIL/BM Boys is the best. If you can zoom in, do it on the girl just behind me to the right. I feel like she’s screaming “WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST!”

By this point, everyone was thirsty, so we headed inside and got a round of drinks from the cocktail hour that was happening out front.

Did anyone else’s wedding get ruined by a shark? And by ruined I mean made a hundred times more awesome.

    @Mrs. Campfire: @Miss Phone Booth: It was basically the only time I sat down on the couch (or at all) all night, but I definitely got the photos I wanted!
