When fans who watch Counting On online saw Jinger Duggar marry Jeremy Vuolo, they did not see persona non grata Josh Duggar.
That was by design, and for obvious reasons. But now we now know just how hard TLC tried to keep his polarizing mug off camera.
It's not clear if there's an official policy or not, but producers have decided that Josh cannot be featured on the Duggar family show.
He is, however, still part of a family in which weddings happen at a breakneck pace, meaning TLC must get creative to hide the child molester.
And creative they were, walking this fine line remarkably.
In the photos below, you can see how editors angled sun glare to block Josh as he stood behind Jinger Duggar as she exited the church.
The producers also appear to have shot Jinger and Jeremy's departure multiple times, perhaps to further nix scenes that Josh sneaked in.
Inside the church, he was concealed by ducking down, holding a child in front of his face, or by positioning him behind other humans.
It's rather extensive and hilarious. Check out the photos.
What a Sunny Day!
Right in that one location, where Josh Duggar happened to be standing, the glare from the late day sun was crazy! Who would've guessed!
A Break in the Glare
When Josh moved behind that post, the sun glare that had been obscuring his face mysteriously vanished as well. What timing.
Oh, He Moved, Reflect that Sun Back on Him!
Seriously. These producers, lighting technicians and camera guys are good.
The Future's So Bright ...
... but only literally for Josh Duggar, who can't even be shown on his family's reality show, but probably wants to wear shades anyway so he doesn't go blind.
That's Josh ... or Josh's son on the very far left. Nicely positioned to escape viewers undetected.
Down in Front!
Josh hid himself from this scene during Jinger's wedding simply by ducking down in the pews.
Joy-Anna Looks Perfect
On merit, but also perfect in the way she's standing, right smack in front of her disgraced older brother.
Josh holds up his little son to make sure that the boy gets a good view of what's going on ... yeah, that's precisely it.
Marcus Duggar, Reloaded
They could've just jettisoned Josh to the back row or something. Just saying.
We're not making it up. That's really what he was doing.
Turn Around and Talk to People, Okay?
Take away that red circle and you almost wouldn't know what TLC was trying to do.
Persona Non Grata
Again, just a few rows back would've made this tightrope walking easier for editors.
Jinger Exits, Take One ...
Jeremy and Jinger drive away from their wedding. Just married! But then ...
... Take Two!
For some reason, they're being driven away by someone else in the same scene. Clearly they re-shot the scene in which they left the church, perhaps to make sure they got Josh out of the footage?
The Happy Married Couple
It was all smiles for Jinger and Jeremy that day. With no Josh on camera to ruin their custom TLC memories of it, either.
