Samo Rovan is a wedding photographer who won Emzin’s Photography of the year contest in Slovenia. When I started to think how should I do the picture, I thought on the famous picture of Arthur Trees, The Actor, 1973 Arthur_Tress_the_Actor_1973 From the beginning I wanted to remake a chaos and ridicules situations that occur on all weddings. I had several variation of the idea and even in the morning of the shoot I simplified the scenario.

So this are two results. Which one do you prefer?

I thank Samo and Kaja for their patience, Krinolina for the dresses and MOL for letting us photograph in their wedding hall.
Here are some pics from the shoot by Samo & Kaja.

PS: I was asked how did I made a montage that they are holding their hands. If you carefully plan, it’s really easy! I used my hand and I marked exact the spot where hands meet and where the arm should be.
Here are some more funny pics.

  1. nice image…there was the same concept taken of wayne gretzky, the hockey star, where he was in a restaurant and everyone in the restaurant was him…waiters, cooks, all of them doing something different…you like hockey no? you like that? man on skates…no?

  3. I haven’t saw the Gretzky image, but the idea is nothing new. Rebekka from Island is did many great images in this niche.

  5. Hehehehe… Why didn’t you find some prettier bride?
    Very good looking portrait. One could tell at first look that he has some issues with wedding photography.
    My favorite: guy between chairs 🙂

  6. Superca! Res duhovito in super izvedba!!! Upam, da te mož ne najde, ker si nevesto za joške šlatal! Mogoče bi bilo bolš, če bi dal mal manj Samotov po sobi in da bi tisti, ki so delali kaj bolj odštekanega? (tako kot tist ki med stoloma fotka itd…)Hmm… Kako si pa naredil, da se za roke drzita? 🙂

  8. Great photo! I love the idea and the way you pulled it of – especially all of the Samo’s taking photographs 🙂

    I prefer the first one, seems like most people here do.

  15. Bravo Borut in Samo!
    Samo, evo, če se ne boš nikoli zares poročil, imaš vseeno hude poročne fotke 😆

  16. Attack of the Samos. 🙂 Dobr si se potrudu Borut. Še hujša fora bi bla, če bi si izmenjala prstane! 😉

  17. Dbest.
    So fleši na nekaterih aparatih dodani umetno ali…?


    22 February, 2009 at 23:25

  18. Ne, fleši so kar naravni. Oespozicija je bila blizu dveh sekund in fleš je bil na 1/128 moći ali pa 1/60. odvisno od ozadja.

    Ja, izmenjava prstanov bi bila še hujša fora, a to bi bila šele jeba zmontirat! A bi se dalo, vem.
