Wedding photographers have a unique view of one’s big day. They are there (literally hired by the couple) to document every moment of the special day. On the positive end of the spectrum, they are there to capture the tears of joy, the sweet reunions of friends and family, and the beauty of the event itself. On the not-so-positive end of things, wedding photographers also capture the stress the couple is under that day from months of planning, the doubts they may have, the frustration they may be feeling, and any family drama that may ensue. Seeing as wedding photographers spend their days watching people tie the knot, they have developed a key eye for the couples that they are pretty sure will make it in the long run or not. There are red flags that these wedding professionals learned to see and they are sharing them all online, as such, we have collected these juicy little tidbits both out of curiosity and perhaps to learn and thing or two as what not to do.
Cutting the cake
There are two ways the cake cutting can go, either the couple smashes cake all over the others’ face or they feed each other the cake in a civil manner. One wedding photographer said that the several couples where she saw the groom smash cake all over the bride’s face (who has spent quite a penny on her makeup for the day) have all ended with the couple eventually filing for divorce.
The cake situation was the red flag she thought it was.
