lalalala love

Want to see something beautiful?
The next time you see a bunch of people getting ready to take a group picture...

stand behind them.

That's where all the love is!

Sometimes you can tell how much people love each other without even seeing their faces.

Although I am now divorced, I still love one particular photo my wedding photographer took. He was sitting behind us (we were standing) while the cards and messages were read out. Our hands are clasped behind each others backs, and our rings are all new and shiny with promise. Still makes me smile just to think of it :-)

Mark Kalan said...

I actually told the wedding photographer to do this when he was shooting the bride/bridesmaids pre-wedding. They were all wearing t-shirts like a sports team with the wedding names/logo on the back. For the $$ he was getting I was surprised he didn't catch/think of it.

Paulo Nogarol said...

Lulu said...

this is so true! thank you for making me truly notice this, it made my day at least a hundred times better :D.
anyway, from no n, i'll stand behind people getting ready to take a group picture :D. of course, i will look like a creep on the actual photo, later on (bwahah, i can just imagine everyone smiling at the camera, and a little redhead-possibly a stranger- behind them, staring dreamingly into nothingness.. can you say nothingness??).

wow, i wrote a whole chapter here.. i hope you get it :3

thank you for an awsumm blog ^^

Hi Katie! :-)

This post is just so inspiring, it actually gave me goosebumps. :-) I never really thought about it because sometimes we are always focused on what's in front of us that we kind of take for granted the things that cannot be seen. :-)

Thank you for this lovely post. Have a great weekend. :-)

xoxo
Ida
