A Selection Of Funny Bridal And Engagement Photos.
It was October 3rd 2008 when it all started. The bride, Nikki, said "hey, I want a photo taken with Hugh". Then it snowballed.
A couple of bride and photographer images later, and the Goofball Hugh theme was born. Soon, brides were saying in consultations, before even booking our services, that they wanted their "goofball" photo. It was becoming a thing.
The ideas flowed, though since wedding days are already a mile a minute, there wasn't often much time to spend on the concept. Still, one bride decided we should be running away together, and we were photographer in full flight. Another chose the same idea during an after wedding session.
Another Goofball Hugh shot involved the groom polishing my shoes on a shoe shine stand, while the bride stared deeply into my eyes. Most of the time, it was hard to keep a straight face, I couldn't stop laughing.
Lip glossing your photographer.
Another bride decided that I needed some lip gloss, and she was just the person to apply it. This wasn't a Goofball Hugh shot as such, but it became one. Then during an after wedding bridal shoot, watching the bride strike a beautiful fashion type pose I thought "we should do it together". It will be obvious which image it is below.
Probably most flattering of all for me is the shot against the red building, jumping into the air with the bridesmaids as the bride laughed and laughed. Why flattering? Because it actually ended up in their wedding album. There were other variations without me in the frame, but the bride chose to put a Goofball Hugh shot into her album. That was so sweet, and I felt extremely touched, though I did have an overwhelming desire to try and talk her out of it.
Possibly the strangest Goofball Hugh shot of all, was when the father of the bride came to the consultation, and announced that he wanted a Goofball Hugh shot. Now that was funny, and as you go through the images below, you will know which one it is! Interestingly, this gentleman is an avid photographer.
So here they are, just some of the collection of Goofball Hugh shots. There are images from weddings, bridal shoots and engagement sessions. Please enjoy.
