How funny is this photo of groomsmen jumping in the meadow at Holly Hedge Estate? “Jump” photos are very popular for bridal parties and can have interesting and unusual results.
Some might think that these jump photos are relatively recent, but they actually originated in the 1950s with legendary portrait photographer Philippe Halsman. He asked every famous or important person he was photographing to jump for him. Said Halsman, “Life has taught us to control and disguise our facial expressions, but it has not taught us to control our jumps." He felt that a person was revealed in a jump.
