Larey & Phyllis McDaniel
We photographed this wedding at Indianola on the Kitsap Peninsula in May. It was a cold damp day, but the enthusiasm and love radiating from the bride and groom kept everyone's spirits warm.
My favorite past time or hobby
We enjoy taking long walks together. We've enjoyed model trains, woodworking, hiking, biking and listening to an eclectic collection of music which ranges from Bach to Rock.
Phyllis and I got married in December some years ago, a month which at that time was very slow for the Seattle Symphony where I play bass clarinet. The next year the ballet began producing "The Nutcracker" and from then on for our anniversaries I was generally in the orchestra pit playing while she was in the audience listening. We would go out afterward for a really wonderful dinner.
People I'd like to meet
In the course of our work, we have met quite a few famous musicians including Yoyo Ma, Aaron Copland and Igor Stravinsky. One person I wish I had the opportunity to meet was Ansel Adams, who in addition to being a master photographer was also a very fine pianist.
Dog, cat, or other
We had a great cat who adopted us when his owner had the audacity to bring another feline into their house. Nigel was our great friend for many years until he succumbed to old age.
