We were contacted by Darlene and Roger’s daughters. They wanted to give their parents a special anniversary gift- a photo session for just the two of them. We knew right off that these must be special parents, so we couldn’t wait to meet them! I got to speak with Darlene before the session and when she told us that they loved going to the vineyards in Irving, it got us thinking…how great would it be to do their photo session in one of their favorite vineyards?! We’re glad we found the perfect place to go to! Delaney Vineyards is a gorgeous and romantic setting that fit perfectly with what Darlene and Roger were celebrating: 25 years of love.
There’s an old English toast that says, “May our love be like good wine, grow stronger as it grows older.” When you’re celebrating 25 years of marriage, you’re celebrating a marriage that is full of love and strength. We could tell our couple was in love when we met them, and they made the camera love them, too! We didn’t need to prompt them much, they had so many natural laughs and shared moments throughout the session. It was one of our favorite photo shoots this year!
Before we ended the shoot, we asked Darlene and Roger for advice for us newlyweds, and they told us…
It’ll all work out if you’re patient with each other. Oh, and if you “let her know she’s right.” : )
A sunset kiss in the vineyards. A favorite.
Roger liked this door because it reminded him of the doors they exited from on their wedding day. That’s enough to make us love the doors, too! : )
We waited a little for the sun to go down some, and we’re glad our couple was so flexible. These sun kissed photos were totally worth the wait!!
Our good looking couple. Rockin’ the individual portraits. We loved the way they looked at each other from off camera while the other was being photographed. They’re clearly hopelessly in love! : )
I love the way Roger looks at Darlene. We think they should come and model for our engaged couples. ; )
Darlene, you’re gorgeous…love your eyes!
Don’t they make 25 years look awesome!?
Darlene and Roger, thank you for being yourselves on your photo session and letting us tag along. We had a fabulous time meeting you both, and we wish you all the best on the next 25 years!
-Matt & Ivy
