A photo shoot of an elderly couple in Oklahoma who have been married for 57 years has gone viral.

Clemma and Sterling Elmore married 4 months after they met.

When asked what the secret was to their enduring love, Elmore said that in addition to putting God first in their lives and marriage and working on their relationship, they tell each other "I love you" probably 10 times a day.

Their devotion to each other was obvious when photographer Stacy Welch-Christ took them to a pasture for a photo shoot inspired by the film "The Notebook."

Since posting the photos on Facebook, they have been shared almost 49,000 times as of Thursday morning and multiple media outlets have ran stories about the photos.

The photo shoot was arranged by the couple's granddaughter, according to ABC News.

Clemma and Sterling will celebrate 58 years in February 2017.
