Smile for the camera ... or not — vintage 1800s photographs show fascinating difference in style

Smile for the camera … or maybe not. These fascinating wedding photographs from the 1800s show just how different the approach to shooting one’s special day was two centuries ago.

Along with the lack of pearly whites on display, the emotionless, sepia-hued images predominantly show no touching between couples.

The images are on display as part of an exhibit, “I Do, I Do,” at the Ricco/Maresca Gallery in New York. The exhibit runs through Sept. 9, 2017. (Caters News)
