I have always loved candid photography both of people and pets. I suppose there’s time for formal portraits — such as when you need photographs because you are an actor or a model — but I think most of us like pictures that look the way we want to be remembered. I’m pretty sure that’s also what other people want to see when they look at our pictures of us and others.
We didn’t do any formal wedding pictures except for those taken in church and the “my family,” “his family” setups. Otherwise, our photog and her assistant took great pictures that even today are fun to look at. She only had to organize us to take the single picture of us all gathered on the lawn by the church. There were so many of us back then. We have really scattered over the years.
Garry takes good candid shots of me. I have more trouble getting good ones of him, but I keep trying. One of these days, I’ll get exactly what I want!
All photos are by Garry or me.
