Ben and Desiree met in their high school in gym class. Having spent a little time with them, it seems like the perfect place for them to have met. Both are athletes full of a strong competitive spirit. Don’t let them fool you though…they may be competitive but with each other they are also tender. They laugh (a lot) and just have fun together.
During college (and even for now) they had a long distance relationship but were together in the summers on the Portage Lakes. That seemed like the perfect place for a meaningful engagement session. We met a couple weekends ago on a cold Saturday afternoon. Despite the cold, the session was beautiful.
We wanted to capture Don & Jackie’s love of fun…so an engagement session at Wingfoot Lake’s Mini Golf Course seemed like the perfect location. They enjoy life and love amusement parks, wineries, theaters, but most of all, they love each other. …She’s a little more serious and he’s a little more silly. Together though, they make a sweet couple who clearly adore each other.
Obviously, I photograph weddings and I love them, but the opportunity to photograph a couple after 50 years together melts my heart. These two have ten children, countless grandchildren, and five decades together. In a day and age when couples don’t last five years, I couldn’t help but tearing up watching this family interact.
He’s into Legos and built her their adorable cake topper. I love her reaction when she sees the surprise.
Congratulations to both of you and your entire sweet family. It was such a blessing working with all of you!
