LOVE STORIES THAT LAST | Southern Illinois Photographer

In Family, Love, Remember, Wedding by estherbloom1 Comment

It is no secret that I shoot and love weddings. Well, one of my favorite parts of weddings is being able to watch those that have been married for a long time (typically the couples grandparents) give advice to the newlyweds. I have so many memories of hearing their advice & watching the joy on the brides face as she dances with her grandfather or gets a kiss from her grandmother as she gets ready for the day. There is just something about these moments that I cherish & miss from my own grandparents. These lasting love stories are something to be admired. So in all of this I have decided that this year I want to search out a deserving couple who has been married many many years. To celebrate our 10 years of shooting love stories, I would love to photograph you & listen to your long lasting love story.

If you know someone that has one of these long lasting marriages & a wonderful love story, please nominate them by emailing a photo of the couple to Please note how long have they been married & something special about their story. I can’t wait to hear these beautiful stories & gift a session to a very deserving couple.

Couple will be chosen on April 15, 2019. Then we will set up a session date together.



  1. My parents have been married for 62+ years. Their love for GOD, each other, and family has been what makes their marriage so strong. They take care of each other always putting the others needs first. Through many health issues during the later years has tested that bond. My dad has always beamed with pride introducing her as his lovely bride of 62 years!
