5 reasons why if I’m your wedding photographer I shouldn’t eat your cake

5 reasons why if I’m your wedding photographer I shouldn’t eat your cake

During last nights fourth of July wedding I was graciously offered a piece of the wedding cake. I am often offered cake at the weddings I photograph. On a rare occasion I may choose to indulge in piece of cake but for the most part I decline. This got me thinking about why I don’t usually accept cake at weddings so I came up with “The 5 reasons why if I’m your wedding photographer I shouldn’t eat your cake”….

  1. Sticky Fingers

I can’t have all that sugary frosting on my hands while I’m trying to operate my top of the line DSLR to capture the magical moments of your reception.

  1. Weekly dessert budget..

If I ate cake every Saturday that would put me waaaay over my desserts budget for the week… and sometimes I really like icecream on Sunday during Game of Thrones.

This wedding cake was almost too beautiful to cut! The soft pink colors and the beautiful flowers made it look just as great as I'm sure it tasted. ;)

  1. To cake or not to cake

I’m really more of an ice cream girl anyway… sometimes I’ll eat cheesecake but I’m not sure if that’s even considered cake or not.

This bride had cream and cake for her wedding! Too fun! The cream was the perfect refreshing treat for a summer wedding in Puerto Rico.

  1. Sugar High

About 5 – 15 minutes after your cake has been cut and served all of your guests will be experiencing an extreme sugar rush. Combined with the champagne from the toasts this makes for an extreme spike in activity that I need to be level headed enough to capture on film at a moments notice.

This bride and groom didn't hold back at all after the cake was cut. Frosting and cake flying everywhere! I must admit this was a great moment to photograph.

  1. Quite honestly, I really enjoyed the steak dinner you were so generous to share with me and I could probably go for a second helping of that instead… does anyone in the kitchen have a hidden bottle of A1?

*** none of the wedding cakes pictured here were harmed by me in the making of this post. Just photographed and immortalized forever.

I also have a Wedding Cake Pinterest Board dedicated entirely to the amazing cakes I have photographed at different weddings.
