Amy and Rick’s 50th Anniversary

50th Anniversary Photo as captured by Ashley Gregoire Photography


Amy and Rick are total relationship goals. Just look at the joy they share and the love in their eyes. I felt more like I was photographing a first date than a 50th anniversary.

They have accomplished what so many are not fortunate to have, whether from divorce or death. My parents were married for 30 years when my daddy passed away. It’s been 4 years and my mama still misses and grieves for him every single day. It’s heartbreaking.

The other unfortunate circumstance preventing lasting marriages – divorce. Marriage is not for the weak. It’s hard work! It takes two forgiving people “choosing” to love and care for each other even when you don’t “feel” like it. Marriage is more than about a feeling. It’s a commitment; a commitment to love your wife and respect your husband through the good times and through the tough times. It’s working together, for each other, not against each other.


For any of those out there looking for good marriage resources to read, I highly recommend “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman, “Love & Respect” by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs; and if you’re up for a challenge, “The Love Dare” by Alex Kendrick.  These three (along with others) are on my bookshelf and I’ve learned so much from each one of them.

Amy and Rick, I don’t know your life story. Still, I applaud you and your love & commitment! Thank you for being one of the few couples to showcase to the world that marriage vows are more than just words and that “Til death do us part” is a promise, not a forgotten reciting.
