Must Have Photos

When last we visited the Bronx Zoo it was suggested that we consult the interactive planner to create a photo itinerary for "must have" zoo shots. (How cool is this: we will be driven around in a golf cart taking pictures with our favorite zoo animals!)

This led me to do some online research regarding general "must have" shots. The results are nothing less than pathetically hysterical:
  • Close-up of groom's adorably nervous mug waiting for his other half
  • The buffet or, if having table service, a dinner serving
  • Intimate shots of bride and groom chatting with/crying with/hugging parents and siblings pre-ceremony
Some of these lists have hundreds of suggestions: and they are mostly lame, or so painfully obvious that I am curious as to how they even warrant mentioning (e.g., "Picture of bride and groom together"...really? Thanks, The Knot, I never would have thought of that on my own).

Naturally, I'll have to inform our ultra cool photographer, Angie Gaul from Milestone Images, that our list will likely look more like:
  • Bride dodging lemur throwing its own poo
  • Bride and groom laughing their heads off at monkey masturbating as it stands on the back of a tapir*
  • Bride and groom snapping pictures of the chinchilla humping the glass of its display case*
  • Close-up of bride and groom drinking Stella out of plastic cups while cursing people for not parenting their ill-behaved, sticky children*

*these events have actually taken place during past visit to national zoos. Now you can see why we love them; you never know what will happen

I am sure that in the long run we will have some fantastic photos that really reflect our day and our spirit. For that, I am grateful.
