Steve and Betty - Fifty Years

September 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Myrtle Beach Wedding and Family Photos

 

 

Fifty years....Steve and Betty have been married as long as I have been alive. When their daughter contacted us to take some family pictures while they were all gathered for the anniversary celebration, we jumped at the chance. Fifty years is a long time of anything, or so we thought.  At first glance, it was not apparent just who Steve and Betty were or if they had even arrived. They certainly didn't look old enough to have been married fifty years.

 

 

At second glance, it seemed they were always laughing and smiling and well....busy.

 

 

Their beautiful family, their happy spirits and the smiles on all of their faces were proof that this was something worth talking about.

 

As the moon rose and the sun set on our shoot that day, I did what I always like to do, I stopped them on the way off the beach. "Wait, I need to ask you one more thing. Tell me. Fifty years! How did you you do it? What's the secret?"

 

They both smiled, looked each other in the eye and then turned to me and said, "It is a lot of give and take, give and take, give and take;  but always....more giving than taking." and then there was one more important statement that they felt they had to make, "but always remember," Betty said with a gleam in her eye, "If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." And then they all walked away, just as happy as they were when they arrived.

 

Happy Fiftieth Anniversary, Betty and Steve! We wish for you many blessings!!
