One of my very favorite things to photograph is couples that have been married for decades.  So often we forget to truly appreciate and cherish the love in a marriage when kids, school, careers, sports, activities, bills, church and EVERYTHING else that comes with running and family and a household, comes FIRST.  We forget that two people started it all, two people who fell in love are the foundation of it all.  Too often we forget where it all began and truly celebrate each other and the love they share. 

My Treasured Love Sessions are such an important part of my business.  They bring me so much joy and hope! These session celebrate the couple and their journey through life, love, commitment and sacrifice.

I was SO honored to photograph Joe and Faye.  They met in FIRST GRADE!  They have so many decades of memories, from coloring and recess, to sock hops and cotillions, from football and cheerleading to building a family, to retirement and grandkids. It was such a blessing to “walk down memory lane” with them as they shared so many of these special moments with me and reminisced on a life well loved. 

We even photographed Faye in her wedding gown… that still fit!!!!  She looks as beautiful now as I am sure she did then, and her grooms eyes are still focused on her! 

During our session planning, I had them each answer a few questions without the help of knowledge of the other.  I used their answers to “write” them a letter from one to the other.  It was such a special moments as they read their letters to each other and then danced to their favorite song.

Enjoy this little walk down memory lane with us as we celebrate the love between Joe and Faye!
