I was asked to photograph a very special evening for a married couple that live in Jamestown, NC. The daughter of Phil and Kathy found me on Google and told me about the great surprise that Phil was planning for his bride of 47 years.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions he could not take her out for nice meal, so Phil wanted to surprise Kathy with a portrait photo session and then have a duet arrive and sing some of their most memorable songs that they have enjoyed through the years of their marriage. I showed up 10 minutes before the requested time and as you could imagine, Kathy was beyond surprised and excited! Check out some of my favorite images from this special portrait session.
A few neighbors listened in on the music and enjoyed a glass on wine on their front lawns. Special projects like this make me appreciate my job as a professional photographer and the importance it has for creating life long memories. Congrats to Phil and Kathy on 47 years of marriage.
Google Review - "Mike photographed our 47th anniversary celebration. Even though it was just the two of us in our front yard, we had a singer and guitarist socially distanced from us as well. Mike caught the event and the atmosphere perfectly. He took his time with us old folks and the pictures show it. He has provided us with some wonderful memories which are some of the most important things in life. He did an excellent job."
