I had the opportunity to spend a morning with this beautiful couple, Orrin and Betty. They will be celebrating their 70th anniversary in September. Yes, that’s SEVENTY years.
When I was contacted to do this session I was overjoyed with the opportunity to meet such a couple. It’s a rare thing for people to be married that long, let alone still being in love. Just watching the two of them interact brought tears to my eyes. They practically finished each other’s sentences and would gaze at each other lovingly while the other was talking.
I took photos and they told stories of their lives. They have three children, eight grandchildren, a “whole bunch” of great grandkids, and one great great granchild.
My life forever changed when meeting these two. I hope someday to celebrate my 70th anniversary with my hubby.
Just a warning, these two may melt your heart and make you cry. Have tissues handy….
