I disagree with him when he mocks pictures being taken for memories, they are taking pictures for memories. About 3 or 4 months ago I decided to colorize a photograph of my mother getting ready on her wedding day. I figure the photographer has long gone to the pearly gates (My parents were married 66 years) and mother passed away in early 2017. The original photograph unedited is still better than my colorization of the photograph, for I was just trying to visualize what my mom's wedding would look like in color. Here's the photograph: before-after-01 by John Pepp, on Flickr A wedding or engagement photographs will become memories for family member such as a son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter or whoever. Sure the above photograph was stage, for I'm sure my mom was already ready for her wedding by the time this picture was taken. Even though it was stage I'm sure my mother was thinking about something else. Just like that vain attempt of mocking the photograph(s) of the engagement session. Sure they were posing for the camera(s), but I'm sure they were doing so in hopes of capturing a moment in time / memory. Someday, some family member is going to stumble across that photograph and say to themselves "Mom and Dad were truly happy back then". I wasted to much on this sad person that finds pleasure in a vain attempt to tear apart other people's work or memories.
