While it is impossible to go back to the past, a photo remake gets us pretty close to that. When it involves long-time lovebirds, the recreation can be pretty special. 

It is heartwarming to see two people who have held each other’s hands through life give us a picture of how far they’ve come. Let’s delve in to see some couples celebrate their love with some of the most thrilling photo remakes.

Mom Steals the Show

When an internet user shared this photo of his mom and dad, viewers couldn’t help but notice mom’s elegance. Asides from her beauty, she seemed to have retained her youthfulness over the years.

This photo deserves all the nice comments it can get. One internet user summed it up by saying, “Your mum is a very attractive woman. Your dad is a lucky guy.”

Besides remaining visible for years, the vein looks almost the same too. “That vein hasn’t changed,” said another user who was observant enough to notice the long line of a vein that stretched from his wrists to his elbow.

40 years of love and friendship is worth celebrating. Plus, as they share a motorcycle again, you can see that the love they have for each other hasn’t waned even a bit.

The Wedding Dress Was 40 Years Old, Too

Wearing the same clothes when doing a photo remake will produce verisimilar replicas. This couple did exactly that—the wedding dress is still the same one worn 40 years earlier.

And that’s not all. It was even more lovely for viewers to read that mom made the dress and dad’s jacket too. Thanks to this couple for showing us that love can last.

Feeling On Top of the World

This couple seemed to have been having the time of their life in this super-cool photo. It was 1988 and the lady was probably showing off her muscles to send a message that “love is powerful.”

26 years later, she was as joyful as ever, basking in the company of her partner. Apart from maybe the empty park, the man’s new hairline, older-looking face, and reduced love for cigarettes, nothing much had changed. The lady hadn’t changed much, and like a viewer said, “She doesn’t seem to be getting older.”

Love Never Grows Old

It is rare to find friendships that last for more than twenty years. That’s why this couple’s photo caught much attention when it surfaced online.

The first was taken as far back as 1991 when they were just kids. The second was taken in 2013 when the childhood friends were still very much together. In fact, they had just decided to take the friendship to another level—after twenty-two years of companionship, they decided to tie the knot.

A Love Story That Started As a Joke

This photo seemed to show two love birds having a good time in front of a camera. If that’s what you are thinking, you would be wrong. They were just schoolmates who were pressured by their friends to take a photo.

Somehow, it just turned out like an engagement photo. Maybe it was because they kinda looked great together.

Now They Are Really in Love

Nine years after the first photo was taken in 2010, the duo came back to the same spot for a remake. But things were significantly different this time.

There was no pressure, plus, they were now actually in love. To cap it off, they were about to tie the knot. This reunion at the lake turned out not only as an engagement photo shoot but one of the sweetest couple photo remakes ever.

There is Love in Their Eyes

Forty years ago, a couple was probably out camping when they took a photo while gazing into each other’s eyes. Somewhere behind them was a blazing flame of fire and white smoke.

However, as they stared at each other, there seemed to be another fire burning in their hearts. The fire of love. It was still burning when they came back together for the remake—you can tell from the way they looked at each other.

The Prom That Lasted for 20 Years
