CINCINATTI, Ohio -

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and Ben Nunery says his photos tell a love story.

Ben and his wife, Ali, purchased their first home in Cincinnati the day before their wedding and on their wedding day, they took pictures in the home.

He says the couple poured their hearts and souls into making the lifelong home "their own."

Their plans quickly changed when Ali, a 31-year-old teacher, was informed she had a rare form of lung cancer.  In 2011, just one year after the birth of their daughter, Olivia, Ali passed away.

Ben describes the last two years since Ali's death as a "roller coaster of emotions" and says he often wonders how he's managed to piece everything together.

Ben recently decided to move out of the home that he and Ali had tried so hard to make their own.  But before leaving, Ben wanted to do something special in Ali's memory.

His sister-in-law photographer Melanie Pace shot Ben and Ali's original wedding photos and Ben asked her if she would be willing to recreate the photos with his daughter Olivia in Ali's place.  She, of course, agreed.
