This Photographer Has Elderly Couples Pose for Engagement-style Photos


While traveling the world to teach her photography workshops, photographer Sujata Setia has been working on a long-running photo series in which she asks elderly couples who have been married for decades to pose for engagement-style photos for them to keep.

“It’s just the pleasant shock of never, ever imagining that someone would ask them to pose like a newly married couple at 80 years old,” the London-based child portrait photographer tells HuffPost. “I tell them to hold hands, kiss. The couples always laugh first, the husbands mostly. And then the shoots are always so full of laughter because both husband and wife are endlessly giggling.”

Here are some of the heartwarming photos that have resulted from the project thus far:
