T. rex and guest. Sharktopus and guest.

Photoshopping monsters into your wedding photos is now a thing. It started not that long ago, when a wedding photo featuring a T. rex chasing the wedding party went very, very viral. Now it seems every couple getting married wants a shot of the wedding party fleeing a threat to be pasted in later. From the Maclean's article: "'We're still trying to figure out what goes in the background,' [photographer] Tony [Lombardo] says. 'The couple hasn’t figured out yet what they want to be chased by.'" AT-ATs and Sharktopus have already been done. It's already getting old. Has it already gone too far [via]?

Honestly, showing your wedding photos to anyone outside of your immediate friends and family long ago went to far. People, I am happy for you in the abstract; now please get married, enjoy your lives, and stop telling me about it.

In my wedding photos my bride and I will be chased by aged, decrepit versions of ourselves, representing our fear of sickness and death. But in the sequence of photos we have stumbled and fallen, and Time has caught us and begins to devour us. "You are already dying," the priest will tell us during the ceremony. "You are practically dead already. What does one wedding matter? What does anything matter."

I like the photos, and I have to say the more disturbing trend is declaring everything fun that anybody does, if they have the temerity to share it via social media, to be an act of narcissism.

A giant guy with a sword riding a shark out of a fountain? That's a million times better than a T. Rex.

I mean, Jesus, a few days ago we had a thread about marriages encouraging people to be fun-sucking monsters because they are unbearable narcissists, and now we have one in which people having fun are narcissists.

I would like to ask that we declare a moratorium on calling people we have not met narcissists based on intentions that we ascribe to them in their absence. But, then, I would also like it if the web stopped picking over itself to find things to hate.

"Yeah, lately it really seems like the Internet definition of 'narcissist' is 'someone who I suspect may be enjoying themselves.'"

Calling people narcissists is now a thing.

Or, like Bunny Ultramod wrote, diagnosing people as narcissist from afar is a thing. It's sort of contemporaneous with beginning of counting the first-person pronouns in the President's speeches (which commentators have done with both Bush and Obama) as proof of narcissism.

What bugs me is that narcissism as a personality disorder really is not at all like "self-love" and it's not quite like "self-obsession", either. Being vain and selfish are garden variety vices that most people have to various degrees. Actual narcissism is toxic. Although diagnosed narcissists would say otherwise. Naturally.

"There's a current thread on this with some thoughtful critique of the 'narcissist' label."

Yeah, and one thing not explicitly discussed in that thread is the gender implications of that particular label as opposed to other pejorative terms and disparagement of brides and extravagant weddings.

I loved the T-rex photo. It was creative and original. The idea that it's being mimicked by other photographers and couples is neither creative nor original. If they're having fun with it, awesome, but as an outsider I don't find it interesting. It's basically just, "Look, we did it too!"

Having said that, it's really hard to hire a good wedding photographer. The vast majority of wedding photographers are horrible. If they possess technical expertise (camera, lighting, etc), and if they conduct their business professionally—two huge ifs—then their composition and poses are tremendously uninspiring. It all looks the same, and it's all boring. And the remaining few wedding photographers who do consistently spectacular work that's thoughtful and unique to each couple? They'll charge you an arm and a leg and your firstborn, not including prints.

So I get why T-rex is becoming a crutch: Any new pose or idea is going to be jumped on eagerly, because everybody's been working from the same shitty book for years. If this inspires them to be a little more creative, to step outside that box and maybe try a few more ideas too, then that's a good thing.

what cribcage said about wedding photographers. And not only is it hard to find a good one, it's hard to know what you want from a wedding photographer. Do you want one of those stage-y albums that looks (to me, at least) like an ad brochure with close ups of your shoes? Do you want an album of excellent portraits, documenting precisely everyone who was there dressed in their finest? Do you want a documentary album, showing all the "moments"? Do you just want candid shots, taken with a really good camera by someone who knows how to shoot in bad light and bad circumstance? How do you get that across to the person you hire who only gets one chance to get it right?

These photos strike me as a reaction to people ending up with wedding photography packages that mean nothing to them and don't fit with their ideas of themselves. So, me and twelve of my best friends have to trapse around all day, being posed in these dresses while someone takes pictures of us when we just wanted to be dancing at the reception? Seriously, can't we do something fun? People like them and that's great and they will undoubtedly look ridiculous just a few years after the fact (like those faux tintypes you have taken at amusement parks). It seems horribly petty to label them a "trend of [negative stereotype]"

I think the actual negative trend here is gawking at, and generalizing from, things people put on the internet. Yes, the internet is public and if you put it there, someone you don't know/don't intend as the audience will see it. But the internet is also how we share with our friends and family. Just because you can see my pictures on the internet does not mean I intended you to see my pictures on the internet nor that I put them there to prove something about myself, even if I did very little to control their dissemination. It's easy to share on the internet; it's hard to share selectively on the internet. The assumption that something is on the internet in order to impress everyone that sees it is a very toxic assumption indeed.

These photos strike me as a reaction to people ending up with wedding photography packages that mean nothing to them and don't fit with their ideas of themselves.

That's insightful, and I agree. It's analogous to the prints problem. Historically, photographers make money by selling prints. But increasingly, couples don't want prints; they want digital files for Facebook, their mobile albums, etc. Some wedding photographers still charge four figures and deliver no digital files. The market suffers from a serious mismatch between supply and demand.

And you're right, the same is true of the photos themselves. We collectively have these three or four ideas of what "wedding photography" entails. And for people who don't find those ideas appealing—a group that grows as the ideas age—there often isn't any alternative being offered. So an idea like this catches on like wildfire, partly because it's kinda neat but probably more so because it's something, anything different.

I loved the T-rex photo. It was creative and original. The idea that it's being mimicked by other photographers and couples is neither creative nor original.

It's fun to participate, to see other people who are doing something fun and try to do it yourself. It's not terribly original, no, but the thing about original ideas is, most of the times when someone has one, it's in a context that doesn't make sense or around people who won't appreciate it, and it dies on the vine. That's why creativity seems so rare. And most people internalize that environment and assume nothing they think of can ever be any good.

But imagine the guts it took to be the first person to get your friends to post for a wedding picture so you could photoshop in a monster attack later. What if that hadn't turned out well? If you try something like this and it doesn't work, you risk having your friends not listening to your ideas later. But hearing of a fun fad you can join in is a way to have fun with a thing without having to spend the social capital to establish it yourself.

And I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with that, if you're not overbearing about it, either in its production (making people play along who don't want to) or its results (making everyone look at your poorly-made zombie attack wedding photos).

and everyone looked at me like I was monster.

I hate to be pedantic, but before the word "monster," you forgot a word. It is "cookie," of course.

According to Wedding Bells magazine, $2,300 of the average cost of a Canadian wedding ($32,358) goes to photography, increasingly for more outsized approaches.

In general, I don't like to compare costs with anyone, but since this is average costs we are talking about: My wife and I had two wedding ceremonies, one in India and one in Singapore, and I dont think we even came close to that average amount. But then, we weren't shooting Jurassic Park I guess.

It was probably fun for the guests to stage the photo, and they will be amused to get a copy of the picture in their thank you note for the blender or the check. So it's a win for them, and, let's face it, the imitators are probably better than the people who are more original but tasteless, stupid and/or bizarre. Weddings are a great opportunity to get pictures of Great Aunt Sophie while she's still with us, and Grandpa before he's had a few too many, etc. All of your closest family and friends are there, as cleaned up as they're likely to get - preserve it.
