Marital problems

A botched photo of this gay couple at a wedding has delighted the Internet masses

Does this professional photographer have a personal vendetta against her subject?

The Internet is all aswirl at the discovery of a wedding photograph that paints one of the guests in a most unflattering, hallucinatory light.

Talking to Buzzfeed, Mike T says he was attending a friend’s wedding with his boyfriend when the photo was snapped.

“Everything went really beautifully,” he says.

Well. Almost everything:

Mike tweeted the above pic after the bride sent it his way.

His boyfriend Andrew certainly looks handsome, but Mike’s soul has apparently been trapped inside glass by an enterprising sorceress.

He says he and Andrew “died laughing at it.”

And they’re not alone: the tweet has been favorited over 235,000 times and been retweeted 57,000 times.

Should he make it his new profile pic? Clearly.

“My boyfriend looks like a snack,” he writes, “and I look like a decaying vodka gummy bear.”

What exactly was the photographer’s beef? The Internet has some pet theories, but we may never know for sure.

We’re part of the 26% who suspects it’s because the world is a cold place.

That’s always the correct answer.

    The photographer doesn’t hate him. The picture isn’t a good one though. If anything, he’s just an amateur photographer and doesn’t think about perspective. A professional photographer should (and would) have moved the vases to the side to take a picture of them, or at the very least take the snap from a different angle.

      and yes, he should make it his profile pic :P make good use of this unfortunate photo and the fame that’s come with it.
