Hey, it's June and it's the wedding month! Weddings are incomplete if there's not an elegant cake present in the photographs. Even though these sweets were not as candy-colourful as they were in the actual events, the photographs are oozing with a saccharine trip to memory lane!
Our beautiful brides have said the most awaited “I do,” and our gorgeous grooms have unending smiles plastered on their faces — it is now time to celebrate their happily-ever-afters! As a way to commemorate the couples’ special day, the cutting/eating of their wedding cakes is an essential part and it must be well-documented, especially in photographs.
Here are a number of monochrome photographs of some of the most famous couples in history as they shared their very first piece of heavenly life as lifetime partners — their (usually towering) wedding cakes! (All images via life.com.)
There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
These photographs not only provide a rare glimpse to the Russian Empire as it was more than a hundred years ago, they also are outstanding examples of a now obsolete photography technique. Learn the story behind Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii's photographs and how they were taken after the cut!

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
