I asked the DJ for something during an anniversary dance at the reception.

At one of our weddings this past weekend, our couple chose to do an anniversary dance.  That's when all married couples are invited to the dance floor and the DJ will ask those married less than so many years to step to the side of the dance floor until we have the longest married couple left.

Before he started the dance I asked him to leave our newly married couple on the dance floor so that they would be on the dance floor when we find out who is the longest-married couple.  I stated that it makes a nice photo for the couple.  He says "That's not what I do."  I tried to reason, and finally, he asked if that's what the couple wanted.  To which I said, I don't know, however, it's a nicer look for the party and makes for a nice image.  He decided to ask the couple.  10651065
They stayed on the dance floor and now we have several nice images of them on the dance floor with the couple married for 47 years.

I thought about this after the fact. As an experienced photographer, I think I had a feeling he was going to take our couple off the dance floor and wanted to be sure I was able to get the photos I felt would be special for our couple.  

There is nothing better than experience.  

To add to the experienced thought. 

Later in the evening, we were speaking with our maitre'd.  He said to us that he appreciated working with us.  We were easy to work with and kept things moving and on time.  That he works with (I won't use the word he used) idiot photographers who have no clue how to run the day.  Don't understand the nuisance of a wedding day.  We spoke a bit longer and we will be on their referral list in the future.  
Lauren and I have been a team for a long time.  We know the ins and outs of a wedding day.  No matter what happens we can handle it, fix it, help with it, carry it, or move it.
