Our daughter decided she wanted a friend to take pictures of her wedding. Now I do respect desire and effort, but this really was the time to hire a proven professional photographer instead. I had her compare pictures from her friend with the portfolios of a couple of Charlotte wedding photographers who stood out. The choice was obvious. Then she wanted me to tell her friend that we were hiring another photographer instead. That was a bit awkward until we actually sat down to talk. It turns out that the friend only had agreed to do it because she thought our daughter could not afford to have a real photographer do it. That was a relief to all of us.

Professional Charlotte wedding photographers have the equipment and experience to capture incredible wedding images in quickly changing situations. The light in churches is notoriously awful for photography. Read the rest of this entry »

The -80s were a strange time-just look at photos of anyone who was a teenager in that decade. Besides curious fashion trends, music was changing, with punk and underground, alternative music quietly bubbling under the radar. Occasionally, this would erupt into the mainstream, catching people by surprise. With New Wave and post-punk, these bands were exceptional pitches from out of left field. The angular rhythms of post-punk, danceable, chicken-scratch guitar work and subversive humor found small but fiercely loyal audiences when they’re songs hit mainstream ears.

The B-52s, who have been pegged the quintessential party band for most of their career, are a case in point. The band formed in 1976, earning its name from the beehive hair-dos of its two female members, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson. Along with the distinctive, nasally voice of Fred Schneider, the group earned a dedicated audience in the college-rock scene in Athens, GA. But it’s their wacky sense of humor that really earned them exposure on the national scene.

Releasing their first two records in 1979 and 1980 respectively, they produced two of the band’s best known songs today: “Rock Lobster” and “Private Idaho.” Both are perennial favorites on party mixes. “Rock Lobster,” of course, is a song about the various undersea beasts that appear to be partying under the ocean, and the bizarre sounds they make. “Private Idaho” appears to be about feeling isolated and unwilling to mix with people (possibly while at a pool party): “Living in your own Private Idaho/Underground like a wild potato/Don’t go on the patio/Beware of the pool/blue bottomless pool.”
