Heartland Couples — Marriages Committed to Community and Each Other — Heartland Living Magazine Editorial Photography

You guys how did June come and go so fast? While Florida in June is not generally a big time of year for weddings (folks tend to think it's a bit to hot to be getting all gussied up in a full on wedding gown) for the rest of the world every young woman dreams of becoming a June bride (at least, according to the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. And aren't classic musicals how the most of us learned about life?). June is the official month of matrimony and all things love (a close second to that heart filled day in February.) Earlier this month we debut the June/July Issue of Heartland Living Magazine issue with a special section called "Weddings of the Heart" which  included some of my favorite editorial photos yet on the subject of weddings. If you haven't already check out the pages and pages of loveliness you guys should definitely get your hands on a copy as soon as possible. 

But today I'm taking some sweet time to reflect back in a Heartland Living Magazine story from two years ago I was blessed to be a part of from concept to creation. I even did most of the interviews myself! And can I tell you all, this, this right here is probably one of the most profound things I've ever been a part of. We interviewed and photographed couples across Central Florida that have been married for 40 years or more and what we got was pure gold! If you didn't get to see the article in the Heartland Living Magazine June/July issue of 2014 you definitely missed out. But what I've included here is a little peek into the sweetness that was a snapshot of 40+ years of marriage in each of these couples lives.
