Never Before Seen Pics From JFK And Jackie's Wedding Found In Photographer's Darkroom

Posted in: , ,

John F. Kennedy was one of the best loved American presidents of all time, who was unfortunately assasinated in 1963. His wife Jackie, was a fashion icon, a trendsetter for first ladies after her.

The couple got married on Sept. 12, 1953 in Newport, Rhode Island, and now an unprinted set of photos from the event is being shared with the public before they are auctioned off later this month.

Huffington Post reports;

Thirteen negatives, which are believed to be unpublished, were found in the home of freelance photographer Arthur Burges, a backup shooter for the occasion. His family uncovered the keepsakes in his darkroom after his death in 1993.

Boston-based RR Auction is selling the negatives in their original folder along with a set of prints made from those negatives on their website. Bidding began on Sept. 26 and runs through Oct. 15. You can check out some of those photos below or visit their website for more information.
