30th Anniversary | Surprise Vow Renewal | Philadelphia, PA

"Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul."

At the risk of sounding cliche, I will say, love is an amazing thing. It is fierce and it is gentle all at once. It is always full and ever-growing. It is the thing that keeps us going when life makes us believe that all odds are against us. And I do not mean "love" as in love between two people, exclusively. I mean the love that exist in you, for you, around you, and because of you. It is wonderful and simple. We have it, always. It is our choice to bring that love into light and share it with the world. The question is not whether your love is understood, or noticed, or accepted, but rather, did we offer it honestly with all that we are. And if by chance you have found your soul mate, at any point in your life, you know the feeling of having the light of the entire world in your heart no matter where you find yourself. When the touch of that person's hand or the gaze of their eyes feels like home, you are truly unstoppable. 

I feel incredibly honored to have photographed this couple. They have been together for 30 years. A simple walk in the park turned into a surprise re-proposal and vow renewal. And in case you were wondering, she said "yes!" Oh, and then their children magically appeared and made her cry even more. 

This is what unstoppable love looks like.
