Jum & Michael are very lucky to have children who know the importance of a good anniversary gift… dare I say a great anniversary gift! Their children contacted me about giving them the gift of photos for their 25th wedding anniversary, and it just so happened that I was able to make it over to their house for family photos & photos of them together while on my way to a wedding.
I love when things come full circle in one day… when I get to witness a love that has withstood the tests of time, then document the union of two people whose love is just at the brink of forever, and end the day in the arms of my one true love at home.
I photographed them with their children, at the house that they built together… and of course couldn’t resist getting a few of them near their firepit (even if it was too early to light a fire), where Michael told me that he & Jum spend countless late nights together under the stars.
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame–very pretty, often hot and fierce–but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals… deep-burning and unquenchable.” -Bruce Lee
Happy 25th Anniversary, Jum & Michael! I look forward to documenting your love in another 25 years.
