You just can’t fight a love like theirs! Josh + Jess just celebrated three years of goodnight kisses and waking up next to each other on September 21st. Marriage looks SO good on these two for real! I was so excited when they won one of the two anniversary session giveaways I did on Instagram with Manda Carpenter last month!! I have watched from afar as these two have had two kiddos in three years and (like everyone else) wondered how in the world they did it! When you see them together it’s no doubt it’s because of the friendship and chemistry they share and the love and respect they have for one another. That along with the commitment that they so passionately hold to, makes for a deeper relationship even amongst lots of dirty diapers and lack of sleep!
One thing that I’ve SO enjoyed since starting anniversary sessions is giving each couple the opportunity to showcase their giddiness and joy they have for one another. In life things can definitely get mundane and you forget to just remember where it all started. It started with the way he looked at her and the way he made her feel when he grabbed her hand for the first time. It started with that first date where she knew he might be the one and the tears in her eyes as he got down on one knee to ask her to spend her life with him. Family is amazing and kids bring so much joy, but none of it could have happened without the initial spark that ignited it all. Keeping that spark is no easy task, but it makes the ride a whole lot more worth it!
Can’t wait for you to see these two and some of my favorites as they stepped in front of the camera for the first time since their wedding, just them. The way it all started.
