Funny Bride Faces

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

If I had to sum up how I’d like (well, some) of my bridal portraits to look, I think I’d sum it up with these awesome pictures from One Love Photo. David would say this is because when you scratch the surface, I’m really four. I’d say it’s just because I want to be my silly self on my wedding day, not some bridal dress up doll self.

Ok, to be totally honest, I’m going to be making these faces no matter what. It’s a question of whether I have a photographer who’s snapping ’em.
In general, I love me some photos of brides making faces. And there are not enough of them!

    I swear those are the most memorable photos. I mean, if you’re not having fun, what’s the point? :)

    Thanks for the inspiration! I love your blog.

    He he he!!
    I love them! And I’m sure if you are making those faces anyways, your photographer will capture a few! Just make sure to tell him/her that you LIKE those type of photos!!
    Very cute!

    Thank you for translating industry-speak into the manipulative nonsense it really is!

    You and Ariel are going to get me through this with a smile and some attitude.

    The little girl has my heart too, I think I *was* her. And the first little girl photo? Best photo EVER (props to Heather!)
