This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and the idea has kind of been running around in my head. The “anniversary dance” at weddings is one of my favorite parts of the reception – I always always get emotional seeing the couples dancing, couples who have been married 40 or 50+ years. Many times the love between clearly shows, even after all those years together.
So this got me thinking – why should newlyweds have all the fun and get all these fabulous photos together, laughing, holding hands, in love. And I realized that I really want to photograph older couples who really have been through it all.
Do you know how your grandparents met? How they fell in love? What their wedding was like? What advice they have for young people just getting married?
I want to hear their story, and make them a beautiful book of photos and stories, that will be treasured for generations to come. This is what photography is all about, really – preserving a part of your family history, capturing a love story that really stood the test of time – oh boy … I’m getting kind of choked up just writing this!
I could do these sessions on weekday afternoons, and I will gladly photograph the couple in their own home. Please contact me if you would like to give this gift to a couple who is celebrating many years together.
