The First Forty Years

I'm starting a new project that I am wildly excited about. A few months ago, I did a wedding album for an awesome bride in New Orleans. Her parents were so impressed with the book that they asked me to do an album to commemorate their 40th anniversary. I got all the scanned pictures this week. As I flipped through them, I was struck with just how special this project is. In my job, I see a lot of wedding pictures. There's nothing like it - the new love, excitement, promise. But this is different; this is enduring and forever. With these images, I'm watching an entire story unfold as this beautiful couple evolves and remains in love through the years. I'm touched to the core with this one. I just had to share their album's first page:


Congratulations, Edwin and Barbara on forty years of wedded bliss. May you have many, many more!

  4. Oh, Katie, what a gift you are giving this couple. How brilliant of them to 1. hire you and 2. to truly celebrate the amazing grace it took to be married 40 years. "A good marriage is made up of two great forgivers!"
