We love that people look to Mulberry Creek Imagery for help commemorating special milestones in their lives. Meet Barbara and Stephen of Concord, NH, who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary—indeed the perfect time for a portrait session!
Stephen and Barbara met on college break more than 50 years ago while working for a resort in Stowe, VT. Friendship turned into love, which eventually turned into marriage. They spent careers in academia and teaching and traveled the globe for pleasure and for work (Stephen to every continent except Antarctica). But, they are quick to explain that their happiest memories surround the births and childhoods of their daughter and son. Smiles spread even wider when talking about their grandchildren, ages 7 and 9.
Having couples talk to us for a few minutes puts everyone at ease. As you can see, we were able to capture Barbara’s and Stephen’s personalities through warm, easy smiles and a special look they reserve just for each other. We could have taken indoor shots with a typical backdrop and formal look, but lilacs in full bloom with the early evening sunlight won everyone’s vote for the perfect backdrop and informal style well-suited to this special couple.
Invitations for the 50th anniversary bash will go out soon using one of these photos. Which one would you choose?
Happy Anniversary, Barbara and Stephen!
