Speaking of which I came across this image by the lovely Tom Aizenberg when I was going through his portfolio in a mentor session this week. Doesn't this shot just make your day?

These boys have so much style and just look at the grins on every single person's face in this. I simply love a good confetti shot. Nobody can walk through a cascade of confetti and be moody!
