I’ve always thought about what it feels like to be married to someone for so many years…25, 35, 50…Alex and I have been together for almost 11 years and married for 8, and (get ready for major cheese right now, internet! :)) I could not wish for a better husband (cheesy but true). My grandparents were married for over 50 years, they were true soulmates. I wish I was doing photography back then so I could capture them together! I cannot stress how important photos are to me now, there are so may moments I would love to look back at in a photo but can only rely on my memory.
That’s why this session with Ruth and Ed was so meaningful to me. I could see my grandparents in them – loving, goofy and happy. It’s amazing to witness that. It was one of my most favourite photo sessions this year.
When we were done and were walking back to our cars I asked Ruth:
-So what’s it like to be married to Ed for 35 years?
~She says (smiling):
-Oh it’s been great! He’s got very warped sense of humour though.
I laughed remembering all the sharp and funny remarks Ed made during our session and at that moment Ed looked at Ruth as he missed our conversation:
-What did she say?, – nodding at me
-She asked what’s it like to be married to you, – repeated Ruth laughing and raising the tone of her voice so Ed could hear.
Ed looked at me and said with the most serious face pointing at Ruth:
– She’s going to pass on soon, so what’s your number?……
Both Ruth and I burst out laughing!!
Warped sense of humour all right! :):):)
I had a blast! Wishing you many many years of happiness together, Ed and Ruth!

Happy New Year and lots of love to you, my friends!!
