My Baby Just Cares For Me

"We still hold hands when we watch television."

One of my favourite photos from the art gallery wedding last month, this was taken at the end of the night during the last dance. It never fails to amaze the guests that I stay until the very end (most photographers don’t), but that’s because I like to capture these moments. It’s worth it.

These are the groom’s parents, who’ve been married more than 40 years. She told me they got married and started their family when she was 17 years old. Here they are, grandparents of six, totally oblivious to me and everyone else at 1 o’clock in the morning and looking into each others’ eyes with love and happiness.

“We still hold hands when we watch television.”

I wish this kind of love for every couple.
