This passed weekend, I had the extreme pleasure of photographing a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for Rod and Olive Henman. The weather was rainy and dreary when I first arrived at the couple’s home (where they have lived for 50 years I might add). While rain can be disheartening to some, I was charmed to see that Olive, upon greeting me at the door was so enchanted by this momentous occasion that she seemed completely aloof about the rain. Throughout the afternoon, numerous amounts of people cramped into their quaint little home in Eastern Passage to congratulate the couple on their inspiring fifty years of marriage. Consequentially, the rain had subsided by the time people began arriving and by late afternoon the sun was shining through the clouds. At one point, I overheard Rod whisper to Olive how beautiful she looked – just like the day they were married. Being in awe of such a relationship, I playfully commented to the couple how remarkable it is to see two people so in love after fifty years, especially when I’m just trying to get to year four. They chuckled and responded that yes it may seem like a long time but in fact, it passed so quickly that it hardly feels like fifty years.
