Before and after photos always remind us how time flies. But it’s nice to have them, so that we know how much we’ve changed over the years.
Some of the faces depicted are already wrinkled and looking quite different, but the emotions the photos reveal remain the same.
From spouses on their wedding day, to siblings taking their first trip together, and even proud pet owners on the first day they met their furry pals, these people and animals recreate the same situations years after. Things change, we change, and the essence of life is what we experience between those changes.
These reenactment photos will certainly make you nostalgic about the good old days.

These brothers are just as goofy (and loving) as they were when they were babies.
4.This adorable couple who loves cake
From wedding day to being grandparents, this couple will always have their cake.
5. Road trip
The leg hair might’ve grown, but their seat in the car (and their outfits!) have not.
6. This young merry pair
What began with a sweet glance on a carousel ended with a sweet glance on a carousel. Their love truly makes the world go round! (Get it?)
7. These best friends who always have each other’s backs
Though it may have been a bit easier back in 2000…
8. This daddy/daughter duo
They’ll always dance together in the kitchen.
9. And this father/son duo
After 60 years, everything and nothing has changed at the same time.
10. Riding dirty
This couple is still “riding” out life together and more in love than ever. (Their love may not have faded, but the motorcycles have surely improved!)

From wedding day to a 60th anniversary and this couple could not be more in love.

20 years after prom and this couple still looks as dapper as ever!

This couple reenacted their wedding photo 45 years later.
15. From ring bearer and flower girl to husband and wife
Who knew that their wedding day would actually be the second time they walked down the aisle together?

Same ledge, same couple, same love.
17. Travel buddies
This couple will never take for granted the adventures they’ve shared throughout the years—especially when they get to visit special locations years later. (Hint: This couple was on their honeymoon in the first photo!)
All these pictures show us that true love resists time, and never fades away.
