Our story is one for the record books. We met in high school, and if you had told me back then that this was the guy I would spend the rest of my life with - more than 60 years - I'd have thought you were crazy. He was nice enough and certainly handsome, but all I was interested in was traveling the world. I wanted adventure. I got it, all right, and Jack came along with me. I still can't believe everything we've done together.

Couple Biographies

My own parents were married for over 55 years. Some relationships go the distance and just last. They are beautiful to see, and the dedication the couple has to each other is amazing. Do they have a story to tell? You bet!

I don't know that it was love at first sight. We were both coming out of bad relationships and were a bit jaded. Plus, I was focused on med school, and he had just taken a big job at an advertising firm. Neither one of us had a ton of time, and I think we were secretly glad for that because we could use it as an excuse to hide from each other after our bad breakups. 

Over time, though, we started meeting more and more. He'd come eat dinner with me in the student cafeteria, and I'd meet him for a walk on Saturday mornings. Our relationship and trust in each other grew from there, and we became great friends.

The Story of Your Relationship Will Be Unique

It's more than just the story of your first date or your wedding. Along the way, you had serious talks, doubts, discussions, perhaps a family, private thoughts your spouse might be unaware of, compromises, successes - all of it makes up your relationship. 

We almost didn't make it. Early on, we both threw out the "d-word" a few times, and for my part, I know I didn't listen as much as I should have. We both had a lot to learn about how to compromise and how to put each other's needs first. 

We stuck it out, though, and we worked hard to really understand each other. Today, I can't imagine my life without her. We laugh together, still argue together, work it out together, plan our future together, and go to bed each night together.

Let's Get Started On Your Story

This will be an especially fun project for us to do together. To give you an idea of how it happens, here are the general steps we'll take:
1. We have a free consultation over the phone, via FaceTime or Zoom, or even in person. I answer any questions you have and ask you a few so that I understand your needs.
2. I then email you an estimate of the cost of your project and a contract for you to review and sign.
3. I also email you some tips on how to organize your thoughts and your photos so that you choose the right pictures for your project.
4. You then go through your photos and choose the ones you would like to include.
5. You load these photos onto an online platform like Shutterfly and share them with me.
6. I email you a small list of questions that you will answer for each photo that you choose.
7. We talk together about each photo, and you give me your answers to the questions.
8. For each photo, I write a narrative (up to 250 words or so) that captures your thoughts and memories surrounding it.
9. I load the photos and their narratives onto a Google document so that you can review them.
10. You tell me what revisions you would like me to make. Revisions are free prior to the printing of your project.
11. I make the revisions and get your final approval.
12. I then print the photos and the narratives and put them in the album or scrapbook.
13. I deliver your project to you in person or via UPS.
