50th Wedding Anniversary | San Diego, Ca | The Gutshall's | 4.11.2019

This session was what dreams are made of. I'm sitting here at Starbucks and I'm still in disbelief about how cute these two are. Linda and Sam are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in May - they reached out a few months ago asking if I would be willing to take their photos. In Linda's words, "I know that you usually photograph young couples, but would you mind doing a little session for me and my husband, Sam." Um. Yes. I actually started crying. During our session, they even had a coordinated dance routine to Ed Sheeran's, Thinking out Loud. How cute is that?! They wanted me to capture the playful and goofy side of their relationship and Wham, Bam, Thank you, Ma'am! I think we did just that.


It's always an honor photographing couples being unapologetically themselves. It's also one of my biggest joys as a wedding photographer. I love, love, love, weddings, and couples, and celebrating, well, love! haha I think especially in this day in age where love is such a sought after term of endearment and hate has become so prevalent, it's so special to me to be apart of spreading love.


The Gutshall's are a prime example of a couple who have stood the test of time and have come out on the other side stronger and more confident than before.


To Linda and Sam,

Happy Anniversary!




-Michaela and Raphael
