  • Photographs are an essential part of a wedding, as they act as memoirs for the special day, freezing the happy moment in time.
  • However, wedding photographers can often cost a significant amount of money, with some brides preferring to go for the cheaper options.
  • This unlucky bride learned that when it comes to your wedding photographer, learnt it's better to pay up than cut back.

To raise awareness for the importance of hiring a professional, trustworthy wedding photographer, the bride submitted the unfortunate photo of her wedding album to the popular Instagram page, “Awkward Family Photos.”

The photo shows the spine of the wedding album which cut straight through the bride’s face and body.

Safe to say - if we were her - we would be angry too.

She captioned the image, “I was cleaning out a closet and came across our wedding album, now I remember why I never look at it. Don’t skimp on your wedding photographer!”
