Waupaca Chain O' Lakes | At-Home Family Photography | Mike & Carla - 50 Years

This summer, I had the pleasure of photographing a 50th Anniversary Party. It was part family session, part couple's session, but the most important theme that runs through all of these photos is this: Choose Love, no matter what stage of life you're in.

50 years is a long time. One day, you will look back on your wedding day and wonder how those two kids ever figured out this wild and crazy life. Through all of life's ups and downs, your struggles and your mountaintops, your love will remain a constant. Never stop fighting for that love. It will be the very building blocks upon which you will build your life.

And, as they say, "first comes love, then comes marriage," and... well, you guys know the rest! It was so cool to be able to celebrate 50 years of Mike and Carla's love surrounded by four generations of their family. This is the kind of stuff you can't even wrap your head around when you're still young. The magic of family and being together and the love that surrounds us whenever we get to be with our loved ones.

Love. Man, what a beautiful thing. Scroll down to see more from this fun celebration!

Brothers... Can't take 'em anywhere, am I right? Haha.
