I remember on my first wedding anniversary thinking back over the past year with my husband and just marveling that anyone can choose to get married based only on the feelings they have for each when they are dating.  In just a short year, my relationship with my husband had grown and intensified exponentially.  There was a couple at our wedding reception who came up to us and said something along the lines of, “You think you’re in love now, but you really have no idea what love is yet.”  They had about 40 or 50 more years of experience than we did, and I have quickly come to realize that they were absolutely right.

I was so honored to be asked to photograph a similar couple on the advent of their 40th wedding anniversary.  They were in town for a few days visiting one of their eight children while preparing to relocate from Bogota, Colombia to Hong Kong.  I can only imagine the life experiences that have made them and their marriage what it is today.  We headed over to the Rose Garden in Schenectady Central Park which is just beautiful in the summer.  A bit of a different session for me, as I love my newborns, but every bit as inspiring.

Best of luck with your move–it was wonderful to spend the evening with the two of you.
