Wedding photographer shares three red flags that a marriage is in trouble from day one

Wedding photographer reveals three red flags that suggest marriages are doomed – from bridesmaids who don’t talk about the groom to a newlywed who takes too many family photos without their husband

  • Shayla Herrington, an Arkansas photographer, said a fellow photographer with more than a decade of experience shared their expertise
  • The other photographer said they noticed three signs that a marriage was in trouble
  • One is if a husband takes a lot of pictures with his family that don’t include their new husband
  • The second are bridesmaids or groomsmen who don’t talk about their boyfriend’s husband, often because they don’t like him
  • Third, if one of the newlyweds spends more time with friends and family at the reception than their bride or groom

An Arkansas wedding photographer has shared three signs from day one that a marriage is in trouble.

Shayla Herrington said she learned the gestures from a fellow industry photographer with more than a decade of experience, who has seen many weddings over the years.

The elderly photographer pointed out three red flags you might see from newlyweds on their wedding day — including strange photoshoot practices, reluctant friends, and a husband who’s a little too eager to work in the room.

Three red flags that could mean a doomed marriage

  • One husband taking more than three family photos without their new husband or wife
  • Bridesmaids who don’t talk about the groom, or groomsmen who don’t want to talk about the bride
  • A newlywed who spends more time with friends and family at the wedding than their new husband

“I was shooting under this wedding photographer once and they told me they can always tell if a couple is going to make it or not, based on three things,” Shayla said.

“Note, this photographer has been in the industry for 10 or 15 years, so I was really curious about their theory on this.

“The first indicator is that one spouse will take more than three family photos without the other spouse,” she said.

“This seems a bit logical to me just because you might get some with your mom and dad, but to kick them out of more than three pictures seems a little suspicious to me.”

According to the photographer, the next red flag does not come from the bride or groom, but from the people at their wedding party.

“The second indicator is that the bridesmaids or groomsmen will avoid talking about the husband when they’re getting ready or toasting or anything, and that’s usually because they don’t like them,” Shayla continued.

And the final indicator is that one of the spouses will spend more time with friends or family at the reception than with their spouse.

“The first indicator is that one spouse will take more than three family photos without the other spouse,” she said.

The video has earned more than 20,000 likes, as well as hundreds of comments — including some who said the red flags were correct.

Most seemed to agree that a husband who spends more time with his friends and family than with his new husband or wife is a problem.

‘My ex-husband wanted to spend time with his brother on our wedding night and not with me,’ one wrote, while another said their ex-husband ‘didn’t spend time with me at the wedding and his groomsmen didn’t even say hello to me.’

“My husband spent more time at the taco bar than he did me at our wedding,” said another.

Some shared their own red flags, such as spending much on an extravagant wedding “like trying to put on a show for everyone.”

Some were less convinced, especially about family photos.

“I think the first photo is farfetched, especially if siblings all want a photo and the parents and maybe grandparents, it could be more than three,” wrote another.

Others doubted that a photographer who once met a couple could know how their marriage turned out.

“I don’t understand why a one-time session will tell you what’s going to happen in the future. SO many different kinds of weddings,” wrote one.
