Poll: The Half Shot

You may have noticed, in perusing the archives of this little bloggity blog, that I am a lover of {what I call} "the half shot." Example:

Also, see example 2, example 3, example 4 for previous half shots posted on this blog that I very much adore. Even though there are no faces to be seen a half shot, i still think that a lovely message/feeling is conveyed.

What are your thoughts? Are you a fan of the half shots?! Would you like to see a couple half shots in your wedding photos? Loves it or leave it? Comment or vote in the poll on the right hand side of this blog.

For one last pretty picture for this post, here is a half shot from our wedding day that I haven't shared with you yet.

This picture was taken by Nicole as the toasts were being given at our wedding reception{note the pink champagne}. Chris couldn't have peeled me away from his side if he would have wanted to. I don't think that I could have gotten closer or had a tighter grip on that hand of his. Loves it.

I love the half shots! They show just as much emotion as the face portraits.

YES, i love these. I've also heard them referred to as "anonymous shots." We will definitely make sure Sarah gets a few :) Love the one of you and your hubby!
