I was very excited to photograph this extended family and 50th wedding anniversary photo session! Melissa and Michelle were my daughters’ teachers in 1st and 2nd grade and then we discovered that we actually have several friends in common so we have become friends outside of school as well. Michelle reached out to me earlier this summer to see if I could photograph her whole family while everyone was in town celebrating her parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. Michelle’s dad, Mike, even sneakily got Yvonne’s wedding dress out of storage and had it shipped to Colorado so that we could get some “dress” pictures too (just like current brides do). Isn’t that sweet?!?
Here are some of the highlights of the moments captured of this big, beautiful family:
