Groomsmen Portrait: A Photo That Went Viral

Who knew that a wedding shot captured over a year ago would today be making very quick rounds over the world-wide web. Thanks to sites like Pinterest and 9Gag, as of yesterday I have gained new insight into the term “going viral.”
 
So what’s up with this picture?
 

 

Alotta people seem to be wondering what’s going on here. As tempting as it is to leave it open to interpretation, I’ll oblige.
 
Girls, you know.
 

How many times have you been showing off that ring? Well…for the boys things go a little differently.
 
Picture the groom waiting for his pals to come  do the portrait shot post-ceremony. Groom stops to reflect on what just happened and looks down at his shiny-new wedding ring. Enter groomsmen who catch him in the act of reflection. In true guy fashion the joshing begins. Click! There goes my shutter.
 
Yessiree bob, these guys are genuinely this silly and I was absofreakinlutely lucky to catch all the goings-on that day. From the lost sock at the altar during the ceremony (forreals), to the guys poking fun at a very proud Mr. Groom looking at his ring. Here’s to all the whimsy and fun of wedding day. All days should be this happy.
 
Happy Valentine’s Everybody!
