Vickie & Rocky {Married 43 Years} A sweet styled anniversary shoot

I have a very good job and I get to be a part of so many couples start at life together.  Working with Vickie and Rocky was such a rare treat because I got to see the other side, 43 years into marriage and still most definitely in love.  Best part of the shoot hands down is when Vickie said to Rocky “you’re supposed to kiss me now!”  Can’t tell you how often I hear that at engagement sessions.  One day I hope to photograph my clients at their 15, 25 and more anniversary’s but I was honored these two trusted myself and Lindsey Price of So Glamorous photo styling to put this session together.  When I arrived at their home I immediately fell in love and I was so glad we had chosen to shoot there.  They live int he quaintest little cottage feeling house that is actually not true vintage but built from reclaimed wood and is filled with fabulous treasures.  Lindsey actually found most of the items in their shoot within their own house.  All though I love the images individually if you really want a glimpse at this story watch their slide show, it’s the best.

  1. I love these images Tracy!
    They look so happy and comfortable together.
    I’ll be married 30 years this November, it’s so nice to see that the institution does have many success stories.

  2. Tracy – What a sweet idea – I hope my hubby would do something like this, Vickie is a lucky lady! I love that you captured how they are together!

  3. Absolutely beautiful. I love that they did this to celebrate 43 years together. You did a fantastic job with the images and the styling of the shoot was pitch-perfect. I love the images of the two of them looking at their wedding album together. One of my favorite sessions I’ve seen in a long time by any photographer anywhere. Bravo!

  4. Oh…my! Precious beyond words! I’m almost 14 years in and I pray we look at each other like that when we hit the 43 year mark. Stunning images, Tracy! Love, love, love them!

  5. I started tearing up just watching the slideshow! Tracy, these are just gorgeous! What an honor it was to work with you on this session! They will treasure these photos forever.

  6. Tracy! These are absolutely wonderful! You did such a fabulous job documenting their love for each other. It made me get all sentimental about my own relationship and hope we can keep the love alive like they have after all of these years 🙂
