Wedding Reform

The Washington Post on the real kind of wedding bans needed in this country. (Free registration required.)

A sample of some of the things that should be outlawed:

Wedding photographers who disdain candid moments of human beings behaving normally, and only take snapshots of people who agree to stop what they are doing and stare directly at the camera. The result? A wedding album with all the spontaneity of a real estate closing.

So true! R. and I actually had some studio pictures taken at my mother's request and when we saw the samples requested none of them because I refuse to have a touched up version of smiling us staring into each other's eyes with a background of leaves and foliage painted on canvas. Absolute shit. Giveme the drunken party foto any day.
