Special occasions call for a special kind of photographer, and few occasions are more special than your wedding day. You do, after all, only get one of them (well, that's the idea anyway) and so the photographer needs to capture anything and everything as perfectly as possible in order to preserve your perfect day. It's a big responsibility, and as you can see, some people take that responsibility very seriously indeed! Compiled by Bored Panda, this behind-the-scenes look at the world of wedding photography reveals the hard work and dedication that goes into taking the perfect wedding picture.

Bad symbolism - the wedding looks like there will be no room to move. Its a dangerous symbol.

MANY new Hampshire couples do this shot with Jay & Victoria Philbrick. It is one of the most coveted shots of all....if you dare. And many couples DO dare to do it. They look fabulous, these finished photos. Jay Philbrick will go to any length to make a wedding photo you will never see anywhere else. He's a super pro that I have had the privilege of working with as a florist many times.

The bride and groom are rock climbers and there was a huge group of people helping make this a reality. I remember this coming up a few times in some photography groups.

Jay Philbrick

Actually, they are not rock climbers. We lure them down from the top took the photos and then haul them back up when we are done.
