The couple decided to celebrate their upcoming 68th wedding anniversary in September with a loving photoshoot.

“There have been times in my career that I sat back after a session and thought, ‘Wow, I really love my job.' This was one of those nights,” photographer Paige Franklin, of Paige Franklin Photography, wrote on Facebook after the shoot.

Paige captured the exchanges of loving gazes, sincere smiles and warm embraces between Ollie (83) and her husband, Donald (87).

The pair have three children and have been living on their farm in Kentucky in the USA for the past 30 years, where they grow corn, soya beans and tobacco.

“They're as alive and happy now as I’m sure they’ve ever been. I hope and pray that my marriage lasts through time like theirs has,” Paige added.

Donald has been a pastor for 47 years while Ollie worked as a quilter for more than three decades.

When asked to mention what made him proud to be married to Ollie, Donald seemed at a loss for words, Paige shared.

“I asked Donald to tell me the one thing he was most proud of Ollie for and he looked at me for a minute and looked at her and he said, 'There really isn’t just one thing. She’s amazing all round'.”
