Being a bridesmaid is hard work. But sometimes, if you're lucky, your reward for wearing a dress you hate, spending a ton of money, and helping make sure the big day goes smoothly comes in the form of a hilarious photo that you can treasure forever. Take this woman for example.

Bridesmaid Janessa James recently posted this behind-the-scenes shot of her best friend's bridal photos to Reddit. She wrote:

This is how I'm currently feeling about Wedding and engagement season coming up... {Yes this is an actual photo of me (extremely single) helping my best friend with her bridals. The photographer asked me to throw her train up and then dive out of the shot, and so I did. Very theatrically.


21-year-old James, who Brides describes as "perpetually single" (though isn't 21 a little young to be labeled 'perpetually single?'), says her hilarious accidental photobomb came after a few attempts to capture the shot fell short.

"The shot came about when the photographer and bride wanted that floating-gown look, and to do that I had to throw the train in the air and then quickly get out of the way," James told Brides. "After a while, the photographer realized that I wasn’t getting far enough out of the shot to properly cut me out, so I dove, and she caught the best moment ever."


Janessa may be a bridesmaid, but I don't think anyone would disagree that she and her accidental photobomb were the stars of this wedding. (No offense to the bride and groom.)
