“I met Robbin and Stephen for their anniversary session at the church where they were married 31 years ago. As we wandered the back lawn of the church campus, I witnessed two high school sweethearts and parents who are more deeply in love than ever. It was particularly special to see Robbin and Stephen, because the last time we met was while I was photographing their daughter’s beautiful wedding. After witnessing the beginning of their daughter’s marriage, it was such an honor to spend time with the parents who had shaped so much of who she is.
As always with my anniversary sessions, I love to ask my couples what their marriage advice is for a new generation getting married today. “Always keep the fun in the relationship”, they told me. “No matter your finances, even when you have kids, make an effort to keep dating and take trips just the two of you.”
