I've actually never been to a wedding where there was the chicken dance.
I can't remember the last wedding I did without the chicken dance. I think the rednecks here in Hooterville invented it.
And if there was, THEY would be the ones wanting it, certainly not me.
Amen to that brother.
Look at a guy like Jeff Ascough- NO interference (except for a tiny amount of formals) and he gets great images, is one of the most highly sought after wedding photogs in the UK. The world, possibly. And you know what? He doesn't have a photo booth at the reception.
Well Paul, if you're in it for the "art" that's certainly fine. Were I in this biz for pride, showmanship, bragging rights, rave reviews from my peers... all that other ego-sucking crap, I'd be shooting gorgeous models that do whatever I tell 'em.
But some of us poor folk gotta' eat.
