This couple has such a special place in my heart and I was so happy to be able to photograph this momentous occasion! Ruthe and Manuel met in their younger years as friends. One day as Ruthe and Manuel were hanging out with their friends together, Manuel approached Ruthe to ask her out but she didn’t realize that he was trying to ask her out on a date. Some time passed and Ruthe eventually realized what was happening and from there, the rest has been history!
Ruthe and Manuel have now been married for 25 years and I still recall the day they committed their love to one another. It’s actually a funny story because as a four-year old girl, I was a little sad when I realized that all of the attention that Manuel was giving me was going to disappear but when I met Ruthe my feelings quickly subsided because I realized how much of an amazing person she is!
I still remember making them a pillow with their names on it as a gift and I was surprised when they recently told me that they still had the pillow and brought it to the photo shoot! They said that is the only gift that they still have to this day.
Congrats to Ruthe and Manuel!!! I’m so happy that to this day, you both are still in love as you were that first day.
