Our society focuses a lot on youth, but as we've seen time and again, we should be paying more attention to those who are older. There's an intangible beauty that comes with such maturity, but that doesn't mean life has to slow down; you're never too old to chase your dreams or even act like an infatuated teenager. Photographer Irina Nedyalkova show us firsthand, as she captured endearing images of an elderly couple in love. It's a heartwarming reminder that this feeling transcends age.

Set on a picturesque beach, Nedyalkova photographs 45-year-old Sergei and 62-year-old Valentine as they embrace during a setting sun. The secluded shore offers a private place for them to profess their feelings. Small, subtle movements like a hand on the lower back or intertwined arms convey a tenderness and admiration that’s palpable to the viewer.

Seeing the ease at which Sergei and Valentine interact, it’s surprising to learn that the two were strangers before Nedyalkova snapped their portraits. This fact, however, does not take away from the larger idea—that these type of special connections can make you feel young again, no matter how many years you have.

Photographer Irina Nedyalkova snapped a series of endearing pictures of an elderly couple in love.
