I photographed an older couple who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this month. Both really lovely people. She was a beauty in her youth and has been photographed many times - so (as I often see) when we came to select their portraits, she was critical of her wrinkles and how her face has changed.
Her husband came to collect their portraits this week. And when he was looking at them, there was so much joy and love in his face.
“She’s so beautiful” he said, “Doesn’t she photograph well?”
I had to agree.
