{ Event photographer } – Plymouth, Michigan

Being a photographer in the Michigan area brings me to all kinds of fun filled events.  Events where people celebrate the best they have in their life and I get to catch all of it , I get to see it unfold first hand.  It fills me up with happiness every. single. time.  This event was no exception.  It was a 50th anniversary to celebrate the love of a super sweet couple.  Look at these 2.

Their kids coordinated the event and you could tell because the room was filled with love.  They all showed up, really showed up. The first thing we did was take some family pictures before the guests arrived.  This is the fam, don’t they look so great.  

The time I got to witness was filled with tender moments & make-out sessions like this one.

But my favorite was the laughing.  You could tell they had had many, many happy years together.


I loved the chemistry between them too.  How she looks at him so lovingly as he cracks his jokes. After 50 years, sh can still look at him this way. It’s sweet and loving and heartwarming.

Clearly, these two love birds have a lot of fun together….

The room slowly filled up as guests arrived, family, friends and the wedding party.


The details were not spared either The room was filled with momentos from the past 50 years and wishes for future ones.

One thing for sure, is that it was a celebration of all those years that go by so quick, of all the work they put in throughout their life to be able to fill a room with love & joy.  I think they knew that the time would come when, with elation,  they would sit back and feast on their lives. And they did.  Here’s to 50 years !
