    I think he was going for…. “he’s got his whole world in his hands…..”

  2. Madeline says:

    Oh my word, this is bad.

  3. Susie says:

    It reminds me of the “creativity” of the portrait inside the brandy snifter! Brilliant!

  4. Jennifer says:

    This one gave me the giggles. It looks like the floating head scene in the Haunted Mansion.

  5. Anthony O'Neill says:

    “Now, I’m going to squish your head! MUWAAAAHAAHAAA!!!”

  6. vjhr says:

    Yep, you did.

  7. Kami says:

    Green face aside… Why is her head in someone’s palm? I’m totally not getting the artist POV here.

  8. Jill says:

    When Wedding Photographers do acid.

  9. JoJo says:

    Does anyone notice the obvious? That the as well as everything else that is wrong with this picture that half of her face is faded out but her chin and neck are in perfect definition because that really should be the focus of every picture.

  10. a says:

    now I’m dying to see the rest of the wedding photos…..

  11. Jay says:

    Make a wish Gertrude and I will grant you next, your neck and shoulders…then it’s the six month waiting period again.

  12. charlie says:

    I”m sure the bride is just gorgeous, BUT this makes her look all green – like she’s the daughter of the wicked witch of the west and being consulted in palm…

    “Yes oh daughter of wicked squished one by house, what do you have to say?”…

  13. Lissa says:

    I dunno, guys, I think this might be photoshopped.

  14. Belsnickles says:

    Repeat after me: “Meka leka hi meka hiney ho!”

  15. Newton says:

    She’s in not so good hands with a crappy photographer.

  16. Blessedmama says:

    That’s hilarious…and creepy.

  17. Els says:

    I really want to see the rest of those wedding pictures.

  18. Sonya says:

    If this odd photo was compiled post-Adobe, I think this is a classic case of:

    Photographer: “I have Photoshop and know how to use it!!”

    Reality: “I have Photoshop, have no clue, and don’t know that I can Google to find out how to create a good effect!”

  19. Alan says:

    Wow…look at this plum. It’s looks like a face,I’m putting this on ebay.

  20. Douglas says:

    This picture made me do a huge facepalm.

  21. Mandie says:

    Wow, I thought my wedding photographer was the worst, but no, I agree HERS is. Yikes! Why is her face grey? Creepy! I hope she didn’t pay for this, and I hope somebody else took some good pics!

  22. Deacon Blues says:

    Obviously, nothing can save this laughable travesty. Even so, I have to wonder why the photographer would choose to make the pretty bride look like a corpse instead of taking some of the color saturation out of the *hands* to provide the necessary foreground/background contrast?

    • Laina says:

      Because that would make it okay????? It’s still a dismembered head in a pair of dismembered hands!

      • Deacon Blues says:

        You must have missed my first sentence. Nothing can make this photo “okay” unless it’s a deliberate attempt to produce the most hideous wedding photograph imaginable. By that criterion it’s a smashing success.

        My point is that light in the foreground and dark in the background is Art 101. It’s intuitively obvious to anyone who picks up a camera. This photographer can’t even get *that* right.

      • missmouthwash says:

        whuaahhahahaha!!! TRUE!!!

  23. Scout C says:

    EEWWW! This reminds me of the movie “The Fly” where the scientist gets turned into a fly and all you see is his face on the fly’s body. “Help me!”

  24. AndrewT says:

    The face is so dark, yet soooooooooooooo shiny … how did they achieve that?

  25. Simon says:

    I think you’re right. I’ve seen better accidents.

  26. esackman says:

    Thanks for the clairification. Otherwise, I might have thought the bride was only as big as the groom’s thumb.

  27. Sarah says:

    At first glance, I thought the image in the hands was that of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz. Apologies.

  28. RL Andy says:

    So creepy no matter what decade!

  29. hushupp says:

    The newly minted U.S. half dollar ?

    Hope you have at least one great wedding picture, Amy.

  30. Don says:

    A bride in the hand is worth…uh, no that’s not right…

  31. jeff frasher says:

    Wow that’s creepy…

  32. Kim Swartz says:

    MEGA CREEPY, did the photograher think that puppy up?
