I’ve always liked this photo from the first wedding I shot. I still shoot a similar shot now and then. But what makes it extra funny today is the fact that the boutonniere is a) on the wrong side and b) upside down.
Now I’ve shot enough weddings to know what to do in most situations and I’m often the go-to guy when it comes to boutonnieres, bow ties and you name it.
And that makes this shot so much more special for me. It’s a time document.
Hello, clueless wedding photographer.
Flower on the wrong side and upside down.

haha…No idea whatsoever my friend! Ahhh…a time of such ignorant bliss!
I’m clueless when it comes to that so to me it looks very good! =D
Worst comes to worst – you could flip the image horizontally?? :) hehe
A nice mark of the times.
Hahahaha! This just reminded me of my favorite funny moment of 2009: the groom and his best man spent a good 20 minutes pinning on these spectacularly large and lacy and vulgar and chintzy boutonnieres before someone pointed out that they were actually the mom’s corsages. Beautiful image. :)
Haha, I absolutely love it. Super cute story.
There’s a photo book in this. The phenomenon appears to be universal. I feel a project coming on :~)
i love this image…and now the story behind it makes me loves it even more :)
I can so relate to this! Too funny
brilliant … and I completely relate to being the ”go to” gal. I still haven’t mastered the windsor knot yet!
My favorite is when something like this happens and I get blamed for it, because ‘doesn’t the wedding photographer know, see, and fix everything’!! Beautiful photo Jonas!
Well, there you go. Sloppy. They’re normally just called button holes here. I’ll change it. Thanks, Regina.
i love this post for 2 reasons – it’s one of my pet peeves when it is on the wrong side!!! and it’s actually a boutonniere, instead of a corsage. lol.
hahahaha thats great.
In line with Dennis’ comment – your toilets spin backwards, so why shouldn’t your corsages be on the other side? :^)
Great picture, great story.
Just as a picture this image is good, with the story behind it…outstanding!
makes me love it even more.
just say you mirrored the image to work better in an album layout ;)
I figure that’s just how you did corsages in OZ
I didn’t even notice! The photo is great and so is the guy on the other photos so it really doesn’t matter;)
It is very interesting to see how fast we humen grow in to our new situations. Brilliant.
Hehe… Great post :) And it gave food for thought to me as I my am about to photograph my first weddings ever in just a couple of weeks :) Thanks for sharing!
hehee..this made me giggle! thank you for sharing! it still looks good though….
