Happily Ever After : A Personal Project • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

What an exciting week it’s been! Not only are we finally starting a Personal Project near and dear to my heart today, but we launched the Be Beautiful Be You campaign! 2015 is going to be a beautiful year, filled with more doing than saying, and we wanted to start things off with a bang!

So to kick off our personal project, something we have been planning for almost three years now, we are excited to announce the winner of the Fan of the Month Giveaway and the first couple to be included in Happily Ever After, stories of love and life from couples married for over 25 years! This project is aimed to capture couples as they see themselves, 25+ years later, living their happily ever after! Each session will be focused on the couple, their love story,  in their most comfortable environment and photographed on film!

OK, we’d like to announce our amazing first couple…


From their daughter :

“I will forever be thankful to have been raised by parents who emanate such obvious love for one another and their family. This April they will celebrate 32 years of marriage! After retiring last December, some friends warned that they might tire of spending most of every day together. Well, those warnings were misplaced. Over the past year, my parents have acted more like newlyweds than retirees–taking dance classes, hiking mountains, riding their tandem bicycle in multiple countries. They have so much fun together that after coming to the end of one grand adventure, they can’t wait to dream up the next. As someone who will soon be saying “I do,” I couldn’t imagine a better example of love & partnership on which to model my own. Love you Mom & Dad.”

Congratulations Karl and Lori, we are so excited to photograph your sweet marriage after all these beautiful years! And for everyone else who entered, you’ll be receiving an email from us shortly! If you or someone you know has a beautiful love and would like to share that with Catherine Rhodes Photography, please email us at Catherine@CatherineRhodesPhotography.com! We all enjoy a good love story, so check back soon for the start of this beautiful project!
