A shot taken before the proposal. Note Deb's fake smile -- she thought it was stupid to get formal photographs taken before we were officially engaged -- and my ha-ha-I-know-what's-coming smirk.
On Thursday, April 9, Michael and Deb Roberts are having an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas renew their wedding vows on the occasion of their 25th anniversary; see The Latest Word for more details about the live webcast. This is hardly the the first time Michael dragged Deb before a camera: He blindsided her with a proposal in December 1982, during a visit to a photography studio in Grand Junction. Check out her shocked reaction in the following documentary images, which are even funnier today than were back then. Captions by Michael Roberts.
