Jerry I think that calling the polished and professional wedding photography
that Chris shows 'banal' is rude and also misses the point entirely. Giving
the customers exactly what they want is the purpose of wedding photography.

I enjoyed the Russian site for its comedy and cleverness too. That does not
make it memorable nor a substitute for the desired results. Maybe an extra
shot or two in this vein might be a fun addition, certainly. 
Can you share examples of your work showing cleverness and memorable
character, while still achieving what the client wanted? Using Google, I
couldn't find any images attributed to you at all.

Chris Nola,

Somehow I try to compare/contrast your traditional shots with thos of 
the Russian wedding pics a few days ago.  Which ones will we remember?

Well, you are in business , so ya gotta give the customers the pictures 
they want, however banal they may be.

But by ceremony time the rain had passed and the sun came out. Love daytime
weddings when you have great light!

their views. This time the animals were quiet, perhaps attending their noon
time naps.
