Father Recreating Wedding Photos with Daughter after death of Wife


Ben and Ali Nunery got married in 2009. Like many couples, they made a series of wedding photos in their new home. Unfortunately, their happy life together didn’t last long. Ali died from lung cancer in 2011, leaving behind both her husband and a little daughter, Olivia. Two years later, the family decided to sell the house and move elsewhere. But before they went, Ben and his daughter decided to recreate the wedding photos together in Ali’s memory.

’I wanted to show people through these photographs that although I had lost my wife, this wasn’t the whole story — this was also a story of love, as well as pain and loss’, said Ben.

We decided to share with you this story of love and loss. It captures something that thousands of people around the world go through every day.

While they were taking the photographs, Olivia found her mother’s old hair cyrkers and sat down to play with them. The photo which was then taken is reminiscent of the shots from Ben and Ali’s wedding preparations.

Melanie, Ali’s older sister, took the photographs. The family wanted to remember only the good things about the past.
