Groom shot or band photo? #Offbeat grooms#photography#wedding party January 10 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatariel While trawling through the Offbeat Bride flickr group, I was struck by how some of the hipper "groom and his men" shots look more like band photos. When are these guys taking it on the road? < Alex and his groomsmen decided to just skip the wedding and start a new wave air guitar band. They are currently air-touring around that same field. Photo by Whitney Lee Tracy and his faux bandmates. Photo by Michael Cope David and his handsome bandmates groomsmen. Photo by John and Joseph Photography This one was titled 'the hotness.' I dub thee the new band name! Photo by Andrew Thomas Lee Photo by Latophotography Is anyone else reminded of Abby Road, but like with skipping? Photo by Making the Moment Photography And then the question becomes, if these groomsmen were in a band, what would they play? Want MORE groomsmen photos?

He even did a little finger gun in most of the shots Reply the cool thing is, the second group actually did use their pics that day as band photos: http://www.myspace.com/2013wolves Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
