Anniversary Celebration in O’Brien Park :: Grande Prairie Alberta Photographer

Imagine having a daughter-in-law who arranges a surprise photo shoot for your 30th wedding anniversary to recreate part of the day! Then imagine a warm, smiling couple who are still very much in love. This is the same tree they stood before on their wedding day, but 30 years later. Just as strong and well rooted as the couple standing in front.


Yes, they hold hands without anyone prompting or suggesting it! I took way too many of these ones but just couldn’t help myself! A really warm couple — a warm family.


And having fun is definitely something they seem to do with ease — it just comes naturally to these two. Thank you M for planning this special day and thank you to the anniversary couple for allowing me to share this part of your special day. It was an honour and such a pleasure! I hope you’ll enjoy your sneak peek and the proofs that are yet to come.
