“I never dreamed of my wedding…only dreamed of a beautiful marriage. In this wonderful creative industry, I focus so much on providing couples with a day of beautiful photography. To be honest, rarely do I stop to think about the day, weeks, months or years that follow a wedding day. So today I share with you what those years can look like when true love exists. These are my parents: married for 47 years. They have triumphed over cancer…twice. They have raised two successful daughters. They have been poor together and rich together. They have fed, sheltered and advised countless lost souls. They love without expectation and give freely, whatever it is they have to offer. I am so proud to call them Mom and Dad. They are a constant reminder that a wedding is only a day, but a marriage is forever.”

Backstory of photo session according to Amber: “I try to do a holiday portrait for Mom and Dad every year and this year we decided to crank it up a few notches and do something very formal and glam.
