Candid

I adore candid pictures. They capture the true sincerity of a moment. I don't know what it is about this picture, but I LOVE it. I love Garth's expression in this picture. I love his hands casually draped around my shoulders. I love my smile. I love that we are both looking the same direction. I love how comfortable we look. I love the twinkle lights in the distance. I love how happy and content we appear.
I don't even know what we are doing in this picture or who we are talking to or who took the photo. I have a slight hunch we are talking to my mom. I do know we are at our first wedding as a married couple on our six month anniversary. I love this picture.

I love candid photos as well. My favorite wedding photo is one that my sorority sister took. It is just of Mr. Newlywed and I laughing. I'm lightly touching his arm.

It is just such a true moment.

I love that kind of happiness- it goes with be content. You can't pose it, which is why candid pictures are so very exciting. You should have that framed.

You two make an adorable couple. And yes, I agree, this is a beautiful candid shot. So many people take pictures and think their subjects need to be looking straight into the camera lens. Some of the best portrait photographs are taken without the people in the picture knowing it.

Mary said...

It is indeed gorgeous! It really captures the moment and you both look so happy.
