For a few months I was checking out a couple
of new restaurants in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
Disappointing eateries, let me tell you.
While they were okay there was nothing
exceptional about them.
Oh, their thing was they’d feature some hip
twist on a dish or drink, infuse this with
that, mix in an exotic ingredient into the entree,
while the hipster wait staff wears a derby and bow ties,
that sort of thing, but it was mostly uneventful.
Though it sure as heck impressed the local crowd.
They weren’t as particular as me.
It took some meditating over my organic craft beer
with minty twist to figure out why I wasn’t as impressed.
And then it hit me.
I wasn’t dazzled because… I’ve been
around the block.
It takes more to impress me.
Like with wedding photography for instance.
Too many wedding photographers produce snapshots
that look like your cousin could’ve taken them.
Lots of couples may think that looks good enough but
I prefer something more artistic.
As do my wedding clients.
Being picky’s a good thing.
It means you have standards and don’t
accept just any ol’ thing.
It means you want wedding photography that
looks both unique and distinctive.
Anyway, I wanted to show you this portrait
from a wedding I’m working on because I like it.
Like it too?
If you’d want to chat with me
about your wedding photography, I’ll
be around most of today.
