My favourite pic is of my fiance. We both don’t like having our picture taken though he is especially self concious having been teased as a kid about his teeth, but he doesn’t realise he has such a beautiful smile. So in an effort to loosen him up for the photos of our big day, I took a camera along when walking the dog at the beach. Whilst he was relaxed and happy, playing with the dog I was able to capture all that in a photograph…and I smile whenever I walk past it.
One of my favourite pictures is of my best friend and I at the lighthouse at Byron Bay on her wedding day. She opted for a beach wedding and used my red vespa for her photos. The photo is just us girls on the vespa. She looks amazing. It looks like we are in Greece! We have been best friends since primary school – we look so grown up, but the kid in us is still there.
My favourite photo is that of my fiance at the Tequila Bar in Spain. The neon red lit bar had individual headphones hanging from the bar for patrons and the photo is taken of him wearing a set with his eyes closed singing to his favourite refused song. The photo captures his mood perfectly and you can see that he is in the moment of the music and enjoying every second of it.
My favourite photo is one of my grandfather taken about five years ago. He’s sitting under one of the beautiful trees in his tropical garden, in his battered gardening hat, wearing socks with his sandals and smiling off into the distance – my cousin took the photo without him realising it. We have other photos taken when the tree was still tiny and my grandfather had only 2 grandchildren, not the 24 he ended up with. In this photo, you can see the handsome young man he once was matured into the seasoned man I knew and loved, and the photo just oozes his peace and contentment with life.
If I had to choose my favourite photo it would be of my fiance’s first cuddle with our son who is now 14mths old.
Our son was about 30mins old in the picture and the look on my partners face is priceless! He looks so proud but nervous at the same time as our lives had changed that day-for the better! The lighting & background arent anything special but the bond between my two boys is something more than special!
I’m glad we have waited to get married as our little boy will be pageboy on our special day!
Wow! What a difficult question!
A tough choice… but I think my favourite photo is a one of my now husband when we had only been together a month or so. It is completely random, just him carrying some shopping bags and looking up at the camera smiling but every time I look at it I get butterflies in my tummy. It brings back how nervous I was around him- I liked him so much, he was so gorgeous and even now when I look at that photo I can’t believe I was lucky enough to marry him!!
My favorite photo hands down is of me and my meemaw when I was 4 years old. She had a really hard life as a single mom with two daughters and was dealt more than her share of hard times and tragedies. Though life had caused her so much pain, in the photo she is smiling ear to ear and I have both of my arms thrown around her neck tight and we are cheek to cheek. She passed away not long after that photo. I miss her each and every day but seeing that photo always brings me an unexplainable amount of joy.
My favorite photo is the one of my dog that I have sitting on my desk. She is sitting on her favorite tuffet and looking straight into the camera. Whenever I look at it I feel as if she’s right next to me.
My favourite photo is one which was taken on the auto-timer on our camera, seconds after my fiance proposed to me on 27 May at the Cape Naturaliste lookout, near Bunker Bay in WA.
It was a wild, stormy day, and there was a short break in the weather just long enough for him to convince me to get of the cosy car on the trip back home to go for a short walk. There I was clambering through the coastal heath in my uggies and trackies, wide-eyed at a bushfire that had recently gone through the cape and turned the scenery into a charred moonscape. Despite the desolate scene, small signs of life were beginning to creep back into the cape and then when we reached the lookout my breath was taken away by the intense blue indian ocean merging into a sky that looks all the way to africa. I can remember being annoyed at some inconsiderate person who dumped their rubbish off the edge of the lookout so I clambered off the edge, and picked up the dunsborough bakery wrapping in one hand, in the other, my partner Paul helped me climb back over the edge of the lookout and proposed, with my holding rubbish in one hand, and his hand in the other.
So I joined him on my knees, and sat on the edge of the lookout and kissed with the wind blowing my hair while the auto timer on the camera captured the moment where even in the face of such a beautiful sight as the indian ocean, our eyes were only on one another.
I’m not wearing any make-up, or a designer dress, nor was it how I ever dreamed a proposal might be but it was still an exquisitely beautiful in our lives.
One of my favorite photos is of my fiance and I long before we were even dating. I was in high school and he was in college. He stopped by my house and for some reason I had my little sister, who was probably six at the time, take a picture of us. Seven or so years later I am so glad I did this and I treasure that picture so much. It reminds me that my fiance is first and foremost my best friend!
My favorite photo is of my older sister and me, when I was probably about 5 (her 7) years old, “sleeping”. We are laying down facing each other, holding each other’s hand. My dad had posed us and had us pretend we were sleeping. Even though this picture was staged, it’s what makes the picture more special 🙂
Dont mean to be a debbie downer ,but im ultimate favorite photo is of me and my granny last year on x-mas. i told her to make a funny face with me ,and she did. what makes this photo my favorite is that she looks care free ,and happy although all the circumstances life has given her. she was diagnosed with cancer last year ,and in that picture it just shows how its not even crossing her mind.
My favourite photo is a black & white image of my parents from the mid 70’s – all dressed up for a friend’s wedding not long before they themselves got married. They’re both laughing – relaxed, happy & totally absorbed in the moment. Seeing those same expressions when they look at one another after more than 30 years of marriage makes me realise how lucky I am – both to have been raised with such a great example and to have found that rare blend of love, friendship & respect in my own relationship with my fiance.
My favorite black and white photo is of my grandparents in 1956. The picture is perfect and romantic. My grandmother is looking at the camera and my grandfather is looking at her like he is so much in love with her. It has to be the most romantic photo I have ever seen.
My favorite photos is of me as a little girl, about 2 years old, in my dress standing on my dads lap giving him a kiss. It means so much to me since he passed away 2 years ago from cancer. We are creating a memorial table at our wedding for him and this is the picture we are going to be displaying.
My favourite photo is one of myself, my brother my two sisters and my fiance, taken as a self-portrait. I am amazing we squeezed all 5 of us in the one frame, self-portrait style, with happy looks on our faces. It was taken before my fiance and I moved overseas for 18 months and I kept that photo on my bedside table the entire time. Now that we’ve moved back to Australia I live in a different city to my family so the picture is still there on the bedside table. These are the people I care most about in the world, I love seeing this happy pic everyday, it was such a great picture of a great night out with my family.
My favourite pic is a self portrait of my man, (now finance) and I under the Eiffel Tower about a year and a half ago. It was January and a beautiful winters day with a clear blue sky. Even though it was a self portrait, you can see the tower through bare tree branches behind us. A special memory from a big holiday!
My fav photo is of my fiance and I on Waikiki beach in Hawaii, photo full of fresh flowers, beach and lots of fun! A very special place for both of us and our honeymoon destination!
One of my (many) favorite photos would have to be one of my fiance and I. I am sitting on his lap, giving him a big kiss on his cheek, and he has the happiest look on his face and his arms are wrapped tight around me. The really great thing about this photo is it was 6 years ago, when we were just friends, and (really) nothing more. Four and a half years had gone by before we started dating, and now we are (finally) engaged. It’s neat to look at that photo now, knowing that back then, we had no clue what our futures had in store for us. But one thing is certain, there has always been something there between us, and the proof is in that photo.
I instantly knew which photo to tell you I love most. It hangs in my Grandmother’s house. It’s framed in a sumptuous, dark wood frame and has two rows of women from (I would guess) about 1920. It features my grandmother’s ancestors: her, her mother and her grandmother. I can remember taking it in as a child and still love to look at it. I don’t know the occasion that necessitated that photo, but I love imagining one.
This is a great giveaway – thanks for the opportunity. I would upload an image of my grandmother’s portrait (and, very soon, my own wedding and honeymoon pics) to the Sony Digital Frame!! Thanks again.
My favorite pic is one of my little sister and me on the beach in Michigan when she was about a year old. I’m holding her in my arms, and my whole face just beams with pride!
Hey everyone, love all your posts so far!
My favourite picture was actually taken last Christmas and makes me smile every time I look at it.
The story behind it is that my fiance came in to a bit of money last year unexpectedly, but rather than do the sensible thing and put it towards his mortgage, he instead suprised me on my birthday by telling me he’d spent the whole lot on a trip to New York, which has been our dream forever! We were there for two weeks over Christmas and New Year and it was the happiest fortnight of our lives 🙂
So, the photo in question was taken on top of the Empire State Building on Christmas Eve. It was minus-10 degrees (with a windchill factor of minus-33!), snow had just started to fall and we were so cold that we had blue lips and red noses – but it didn’t matter, we were so happy at that moment that we couldn’t stop grinning like idiots.
Anyway, we loved every second of our trip and still talk about it all the time – so much so, in fact, that this week we actually binned off all the plans we’ve been making for a big wedding with hundreds of guests (which neither of us actually wanted) and instead bit the bullet and booked a tiny ceremony (with only 20 of our nearest and dearest) which will take place on the 55th floor of the Empire State Building next September – YAY!!
Thanks for reading anyway, and here’s a link to the photo for those who are interested – http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/photo.php?pid=5081890&id=581750322
My favorite picture is one that I prominently display in my house, a photo of me and my great grandmother together at my high school graduation. It’s just so sweet, she has her head on my shoulder and we’re both smiling, and it reminds me every day how lucky I am to have her in my life.
Love the blog! Thanks for sharing!
My favorite photo is one of my now-husband I took shortly after we moved in together. I’d just bought a new SLR and was happy-snapping around the house. As it was, I caught him busy working and tried to get his attention, but he wasn’t playing fair. A few minutes later I came back and flashed him and got a perfect photo! It sounds horrendous, but to me the photo caught a sincere flirty response, something that’s hard to capture. To everyone else, the photo is just a happy snap, but it’s the one I chose to carry in my wallet to remind myself of the spark!
I have two favourite photos – The first is a black and white close-up image of my mother taken in the 70’s… She looks so happy, young and funky!
The second is of my brother and godmother on Christmas day – They are standing arm in arm, my brother has a cheeky smile on his face as a moment before the photo was taken he decided to flex one of his biceps (in a body builder type pose) which made my godmother point and burst out laughing, they are both in genuine ‘impromptu’ moment – Its makes me smile from ear to ear everytime I see it.
My favorite photo was unexpected – when my daughter graduated college in Cleveland, Euclid (the main drag) had been under construction almost her whole time at Case Western. Since Euclid divides north and south campus, many memories involved wading through construction multiple times per day. On graduation day, I looked up to see the orange lighted construction sign said “congrats class of 2008” in the midst of instructions. I climbed out in the construction to capture this sign much to the surprise of my family and some passing drivers. My daughter so loved it so much she included on her facebook site. Several of grads have seen it on facebook and used it as well.
