Not only do you not have to take formal photographs, but you can be relaxed and enjoy your company, too.

So, are you about the formals, or about the candid photographs?


  1. I like both. I am more in favor of candids and natural things, but I know that I will appreciate some formal portraits in the years to come … especially ones with the grandmas and whatnot. It will be nice to have a formal portrait of our bridal party framed on the mantel next to the one from mine and The Fiance’s grandparents.

  2. I’m a huge candid/photojournalistic fiend. Formal shmormal. Though both look excellent when done right!
