TV reporter Boyd Huppert and photographer Jonathan Malat opened their talk, entitled “Making the Team Work,” by conducting a faux wedding of two NPPA Advanced Storytelling Workshop attendees, one being a videographer and the other a reporter.

“I promise to carry your tripod,” vowed the “bride” reporter, “love the NPPA, and never ever give you less time to edit a story than I took to write it, ’til your inevitable back injury do us apart.”

The “groom” photographer vowed to “stay informed on the issues we cover, honor your words with pictures and sound that prove them, and never, ever make you tap dance on a live shot while I make one more edit, ’til your anchor position opens up do us apart.”

The wedding symbolically illustrated the relationship between journalist and photojournalist.
