Sisters hold wedding photo shoot, capture special moment with dad who has Alzheimer’s

GRAPEVINE, Texas– Twin sisters, Becca and Sarah Duncan, 23, of Grapevine, Texas, came up with a beautiful idea.

Neither of the women is engaged, but they wanted to capture a very special moment with their dad: They wanted to take wedding photos with him.

The women said that their father, Scott Duncan, 80, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2012 and is being cared for at a 24-hour nursing facility.

Sarah Duncan told FOX 8, “We knew there was a big chance dad wouldn’t be there for our weddings. So we thought to take these photos so we could always have them. He got to see us in dresses and we will forever hold that memory.”

Lindsey Rabon of Lindsey Rabon Photography took the beautiful photos and shared them with us.  The women are in floor-length wedding gowns. Lindsey told us the women’s mother, Pam, reached out to her last summer with her daughters’ idea, because Scott’s health had been declining.

Lindsey also shared the photos on her Facebook page and said:

“There has been quite the buzz around these images lately. Photography is so much more to me then a click of a button and an image on paper. Its a reflection of our life, and our time here with our family. Its capturing milestones, or in some cases missed milestones. I was so happy Becca and Sarah trusted me to capture this time, however fleeting, with their father.”

The sisters are very grateful to the Alzheimer’s Association for all the hard work they’ve done, and also for helping the women tell their story.
