I’m so flattered to have been asked to capture Larry and Pam Terpstra’s yearly anniversary photos, and I had so much fun laughing with them and getting to know them better during the two afternoons we spent together in early October. Even after 37 years together, these two still have that “spark!” The love and passion between them is so wonderful to be around, and the quote Pam sent me describing their marriage sums it up perfectly: “Time’s promises were kept, our love never left.”
The Terpstras own the amazing wedding venue, Belle Victorian Gardens, and Pam is the extremely talented stylist behind Romancing the Stone Styling. Here is a look at our first afternoon together, a gorgeous session on the lake styled by Pam herself!
Sigh. These two….
Here is a quick look at our second afternoon together as well!
My 3 favorite moments in any given wedding. These get me. Every single time.
1. The moment a groom’s heart melts as he turns to see his beautiful bride for the very first time:
2. The moment a bride hears her groom pledge to her his undying love and devotion:
3. The moment the newly pronounced husband and wife walk down their wedding aisle, awash with bliss:
This anniversary session I photographed yesterday practically has me speechless. A canoe, wine, flowers, a plaid blanket perfect for snuggling, and 37 years of love – what could be more romantic??
