Recently our photo editor Can Türkyilmaz met up with this amazing couple to take their photo for the February edition of Preston Hollow Advocate.

“I know it’s been raining all morning but what do you guys say we do a location shoot?” Türkyilmaz bravely suggested to the couple that met more than 40 years ago at Southern Methodist University.

“They did not hesitate a second to leave the cozy studio where I had set up a makeshift photo booth for our February cover shoots. I simply could not leave out Perkins Chapel, this monumental building in their reunion, out of the picture,” he says.

Be sure to pick up an edition of our February magazine (out soon) to learn why Perkins and SMU means so much to these reunited lovebirds.
