Tri-Cities Family Documentary Photographer | Coy & Velma celebrate 60 years

“I love you, Coy, my Boy Toy” – Velma

I knew Coy for all of five minutes when he started giving me hell about my torn up jeans. It was our first of three shoots over three months. I immediately adored him, as well as his spunky wife, Velma, of nearly 60 years.

If you’re up for a belly laugh, ask how you can see Coy & Velma’s Love Story video. My talented friend, Ethan Shotz, of Shotz Films, created the video with interviews of Coy & Velma as we toured places around the Tri-Cities that were significant in their time together. This was the second of our three shoots.

On our last shoot, as they renewed their vows in front of more than 100 of their friends & family, I realized that this couple didn’t have just an instant, positive affect on me…it happened to everyone they ever met. The evidence was in the number of hugs, kisses and hand holding I photographed in just a couple of hours. Enjoy this brief look at a wonderful and funny couple.
