A wedding photographer once told me he could predict the likely outcome of a marriage by how the couple acted on their wedding day, especially right after the ceremony. I done photographed a lot of weddings since hearing that boast and got the sense that, yeah, there definitely are telltale signs of impending discord. Sometimes it’s the body English.

I even started seeing it during engagement shoots, like this one. Makes you wonder. If I had doubts about a couple’s marriage during an engagement shoot or on the wedding day, I made sure I let them know. I’d also inform the parents, the officiant, the people in the wedding party. If they had that part about does anyone object, yada, yada, I would boldly speak up. I wanted to make sure everyone knew.
