The Obamas have been photographed wearing cowboy hats at wedding events
NEW YORK — President Barack Obama is reportedly taking on a new role at a wedding photographer, and it’s a photo of him wearing cowboy hat.
Obama is the subject of a new book called “Wedding Photography: A History of American Style” by the author of “Couples in Blue.”
“When you look at his photo, it’s not a very pretty photo,” said author and photographer Paul Hannon.
“He is in a cowboy hat and there’s a lot of men in cowboy hats.
He has a cowboy and he has his wife.”
Hannon said Obama had planned to shoot a wedding with a photographer from “his home state of Illinois” but canceled it.
The Obamas will also be featured in the upcoming movie “The Wedding Singer” which hits theaters Oct. 23.
Hannon told CBS News that the book is not about Obama.
Instead, he wrote it as an account of a photo that he took of Obama in 2004 at the White House with wife Michelle.
The book features photos of the Obamas with family members, including their daughters Malia and Sasha.
Hannon says Obama was wearing a cowboy hats and a hat with a hat on it at the time.
(HANNITY: “That’s because he had to do a little dressing up to wear that hat,” he said.

It was a traditional wedding in the French Quarter, but he got into a fistfight with his fiancee.HANNAH: He did wear a cowboy suit at the wedding, but I think it’s more about the cowboy hats than the cowboy hat itself.
Obama told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in a 2010 interview that he wore a cowboy-hat at his last wedding in 2012, but it was to honor his father, who had died in 2007.
Hannit also told CBS that the Obams have been shooting wedding photos at the New Orleans White House since the 1990s, but the photographer was not a White House employee.
In 2007, “The White House Photographer” was a major hit on the cover of Time magazine and was nominated for an Emmy Award for best photo.
