9 Signals That A Couple Is Doomed, According To Wedding Photographers

During a wedding day, besides the imminent guests, friends, and family, the bride and the groom are exposed to a wider audience. Some of those regular and unnecessary people who have access to the weddings and make things less bearable for the stressful but important they for the soon-to-be-newlywed. Those are the wedding planners, the photographers, musicians and so on. These people have so much experience and it seems like they have seen it all when it comes to weddings.

It seems like some of them know the bride and the groom pretty well and ahead of the big day. The photographers, for instance, have one of the biggest responsibilities when it comes to weddings.

So, we could say that they get to observe a little behind the scenes and during the preparations. As mentioned before, their years of experience got them to sharpen their sense of how truly the soon-to-be-married couple is going to fare after the glamour of their wedding day is over.
