Last season I photographed a wedding at The Hampshire House in Boston - a beautiful historic mansion AS WELL AS the bar that the hit t.v. show Cheers was designed after. Like millions of others, I was a HUGE fan of the show, and watched it religiously with my father week after week - until the show ended my senior year of high school. So sad. After the wedding, as I was waiting for my car, a group of 20 somethings walked by. One of them asked "What's Cheers?" GASP! His friend answered "I think it was a t.v. show or something a long time ago." um.... WHAT?!!!! When did I get so old that Cheers isn't a well known t.v. show anymore?????? Totally ruined my night. But I digress.
Remember Sam Malone - the star of the show? Well he was famously known as a womanizer, and he had a little black book full of female numbers to prove it. This little black book was something he - and many other men of the like - held VERY sacred, and it was a prized possession.
The black book concept may have died with the advent of the iPhone, however, the idea of it is something that persists, and it got me to thinking...
So, here it is -- my version of a little black book. In it you will find the best of the best BLACK AND WHITE images from your wedding. Just a little something extra that stands out from your original wedding album. Something timeless. An adorable little prized possession.
