Today I am thrilled to share these beautiful images of Minnie and Donald an amazing couple who have been 60 years married, sharing a a lifetime of love and commitment.
Images were lovingly captured by their granddaughter Lindsey of Lindsey-Willis Photography who brought together a fantastic photo shoot to celebrate this wonderful milestone.
Lindsey Willis is a Wedding and Portrait photographer based in Redfield, Iowa, shooting in Des Moines and surrounding areas.
She says of the shoot…
It was 60 years of marriage this year for my Grandparents which meant I mentioned the idea of capturing some pictures to my mamaw.
She was excited so I asked, “Mamaw, do you think Papaw will let me do photos of you guys?” She replies, “he will do whatever I say.”
Some advice to you all – Men, be like Donald and listen!
I only mentioned photos. She didn’t know I was going all out with a dress, bouquet and cake!
When I went to picked them up and took them to their cabin, they hopped in the car side by side together and my mamaw yells, “I’m getting married!!”
These photos mean so much to me. These two people are some of the greatest around and many will agree with me on that!
I posed and talked them through each pose and they were loving it.
Mamaw kept saying, “Do what she says Donald and kiss me!”
This IS 60 glorious years of marriage, I’m sure with many ups and downs like all of us but they make it look so easy!
The power of love and strength is what that helps couples maintain the intimacy, connectedness, empathy, and feelings of security and inner peace through from those first days of a relationship to these golden years and Minnie and Donald are a shining example to us all.
Every image lights up sharing that special bond that growing old together brings…and that ability that whatever life throws at you the ability to fall in love over and over again with each other is everlasting.
