One of the great parts of our job is that we get to meet a lot of people that have a lot of amazing stories. A few weeks ago I got to meet Clarence and Ruth Rogers, who just celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary on June 18th! (A HUGE Congratulations to them!!)
I started off doing a pretty basic portrait, just the two sitting on their couch, holding hands and smiling – but it didn’t tell enough of the story. I asked them to look at each other and they immediately began cracking jokes together. A little sparkle lit up in Clarence’s eyes when he looked at Ruth, and their everlasting love was much more apparent in this photo.
Sometimes, a little shift in the photo makes a big difference.
