Most grooms do not include their best man in their wedding photos—but most best men are neither as attached nor as creative as this dude.
To celebrate his love—rather, jealousy—for his best friend, Kody, and his fiancé, Brittney, best man Mitch found a way to sneak into the couple's engagement and wedding photos. And these creative cameos were not your average photobomb.
Country Roads Photography shared a few photos from the shoot on Facebook. "Well, we all know that Mitch wasn't easily letting his best friend go…but, I think he handled it rather well," the photography company wrote alongside the shots. In the first, Kody and Brittney are sitting on the ground kissing, and the soles of their shoes spell out "I do." If you're looking only at the left two thirds of the photo, it would seem like a totally normal engagement shot. But pan your eyes right to see Mitch sitting next to his bestie, blowing him a kiss, and wearing the letters N and T on the bottoms of his shoes, turning the phrase into "I don't."
Photographer Lindsey Berger, the mastermind behind the photos, told Brides, "Just like any other engagement session, Brittney came with some ideas from Pinterest. However, she also brought their best friend, Mitch. She had shown me a similar photo on Pinterest with the 'I don't' on their shoes, but I wanted to see what I could get out of Mitch…so, I asked Brittney and Kody to kiss, but then I asked Mitch to lean in and give a smoochie face! After a little bit of persuading, he definitely owned it!"
The second shot shared on Facebook, taken at the couple's wedding, is a little more obvious. Kody and Brittney are kissing, and the bride's soles say "I won," while Mitch is grumpily looking in the opposite direction, with shoes that read "Shut up." "At their wedding, I noticed that all of them were wearing the same boots as they had for the engagement session. It just came to me that no one had ever done a follow-up on this photo. So, I felt it was necessary to show everyone how Mitch was handling the wedding," she told Brides. "We just wanted to put a different spin on typical wedding photos, and we had a blast doing it!"
