  • I’ve seen thousands of images of this wedding tradition, with the bride and groom aloft on chairs at their reception...but I have never seen a photo of someone beneath the chairs. I think of photojournalism as a means to show the uniqueness of things that are considered common because, in a sense, all things and people are fascinating, unique, when we choose to see them that way. I like this interesting view of a fun tradition in a well-executed image worthy of note.
