I would marry Wanda all over again today. We were hired to take this photo for an ad. You're getting to see this photo before the clients.

This photo was so fun to take. It was interesting to me to see how little Wanda has changed in 24 years. I'm sure she would still fit in her wedding dress. I can't say I'm still the same size. She was a lovely bride 24 years ago and she is a lovely bride today.

One of my favorites from today

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
1/125s f/8.0 at 73.0mm iso200 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

This was a FUN one to do! Back when we got married we didn't have a professional photographer take any photos. ( I can hear you all GASPING now!)(laffin) Anyway, we have an album with a handful of snapshots, none of which are very flattering. So it was nice to pretend to be the bride again and have a real portrait taken. Thank you Bill, for making Me look and feel like I was a young bride all over again. (happy smile)

Yes Wanda is just as beautiful as I'm sure she was. She is blessed with eternal youth. Very beautiful! How old was she when you got married? 5? She could pass for 29!!! I'm sure your clients will be very happy with the photo. I like the second one more though.

"I would marry Wanda all over again today." Well, who amongst us wouldn't?! You're a lucky man, Bill. (You know that already.) Nice shot.

I really love the dreamy look on Wanda's face, like she's remembering that day 24 years ago! A lovely portrait of a lovely lady!
