Funny Wedding Pictures (pt 4)

Thanks again for all the responses to this mini-series of funny pictures around the Capital District. It seems like people really liked it!

What I wanted to do is slightly deviate from the formula for this post and go a little bit more broad. Below is an example of a new wedding photography craze called "Wedding Party Attacks."

Funny Wedding Pictures (Part 3)

Here is part three to my humorous spotlight on local wedding photographers from Upstate New York. This one photographer I am partial to, as I also personally use his services from time to time when brides come to me for a good deal on a picture package...

The following timepiece is arguably a timeless masterpiece that will be revered by many for years to come. In just so many words, it truly is epic...

Troy, New York Photograph Credit, Vincent Gizzi.
The subjects in this shot have been forever immortalized by photographer Vincent Gizzi in a pose that genuinely captures the attitude of this esteemed era. The subjects, as you can see, are seemingly well-versed and fully imbibed in the well-cultured discipline code of  either "Gangnam Style" or "The Harlem Shake," or perhaps both. These self-enriching mindsets were before their times, becoming very popular in the late 2012 era and have bled well into today's current 2013 pop culture, as a way of life. Today, they are often referred to now as YOLO, SWAG, or just plain ridiculous.

Vincent Gizzi is an accomplished full-time professional photographer whose portfolio speaks for itself. The above picture was taken nearby at a wedding at The Franklin Plaza of Troy, NY. 

Vince really has a creative eye for photography and I highly recommend him. He reads his subjects for character and personality and can masterfully mesh them into, say, an ugly back alley backdrop, to create a desired result. This sample above shows Vince's ability to take fun pictures that people will remember for the rest of their lives. For more information on Vince's service, check out

Chalkboard Photo Backdrop Wedding Idea

If you are looking to add that old country rustic feel to your wedding reception, there are a number of roads less traveled that you can take to get there. One thought is to add chalkboard action to your wedding to get that crafty farm atmosphere that you may want.

THE CHALKBOARD BACKDROP - One idea is to create your own chalkboard backdrop for pictures. This is very similar to the recently trending photobooth idea, but more do-it-yourself.

At a recent wedding that I was the disc jockey for, the bride and groom made a three panel facade with their names and the date of their very special day.

This simple idea was enhanced by "Chalkboard paint" (that actually works) and a number of important phrases to the newlyweds, at hand.

CHALKBOARD TABLE SIGNS - Another idea is to label each of your tables with little chalkboards to inform the guests which number they have been assigned to.

These ideas are a great way to "chalk up a victory."   Okay, I had to do it. It was just too easy!

Lightning Wedding Picture (Fun Photography Series - pt 2)

With all the crazy weather we have been having, I thought this would be a great picture to represent current weddings in the Capital Region and also go along with my Local Wedding Trends spotlight series.

If you look just to the left side of the sky in the frame, you will see why this is arguably "a once in a lifetime opportunity" shot for local photographer Amy Hedges of A.Hedges Photograhy from Delmar, NY. (However, with the weather we have been having lately, it seems likely that lighting could very well strike twice making another picture like this for Amy possible.)

This is the second spotlight on a photographer that I have chosen to recognize for excellence in execution of services. As a local DJ, I have worked with Amy and can attest to her attention to fine detail.

A. Hedges Photography is a professional wedding and portrait photography studio in Albany, New York. For more information check out
