Recaps: Us! Part 3

Part 3: Modern Wannabes.

At Bowness Park, there is a concession stand (or building, as it is brick) that has been painted quite excitedly. One side is painted bright green and another is a painted mural of the park in the 1920s or 1930s when the park opened.

I don’t want to spoil the pictures with words, so I’ll let them speak for themselves:







I do love how the red really pops against the green. And it doesn’t look Christmas-y! Maybe more like a tropical Christmas. πŸ™‚




Have you taken any “more modern” type photos of yourself? How did they turn out?

Part 2: The Goofs

In case you haven’t guessed, Mr. Bean and I are quite silly. What could be some highly romantic or dramaticΒ  shots, we turn them (quite happily) into goofy shots. For example:



We laugh when the style of picture doesn’t call for it:



For some reason, I really like striking this pose. I think it’s awesome:


You know how there are veil shots where people gaze lovingly at each other? Well, we’re doing it wrong.




17183140 I don’t think that the veil was supposed to come off of Mr. Bean. Oh well.

What are the personalities of you and your SO like? Do you have any pictures that accurately show it? I’d like to see! πŸ™‚

Next up: Our take at “modern” photography.

After our family formals were done by the lagoon, we wandered around Bowness Park and took pictures. Our service ended earlier than I expected and no one needed to have a pee break, so we had about 1/2 hour more time than planned for pictures. The sad thing is that we probably could have enough used more! (Alas, no pictures by the river for us!)

A Story of the Bean’s wonderful Bridal Party:


This is our wonderful bridal party. Aren’t they looking sharp? They are so kind to stand on docks with us.

17303188And hang out in trees while trying not to get their feet stepped on… (*cough* Mr. Bean)

1743327417473299And make lots of silly poses…

182035021Point at things… (This is actually a joke for Mr. Bean and his two best friends. At each of their weddings there is a picture of them all standing on a picnic table pointing at things.)

Play around with the Groom…

163312711No Comment…

Some Help Please!
