Conflicted Bliss

Questioning marriage through awful wedding imagery

Implications - It is estimated that up to 50 percent of U.S. marriages will end in divorce. This eye-opening figure is likely to make any bride second-guess her decision to tie the knot, and many photographers are furthering the doubt by creating images focused on less-than-blissful wedding scenes. These disturbing captures effectively use emotion to secure viewer attention, alluding to a darker side of a traditionally happy occasion.
