a word about

You’re not the same couple that I shared iced mochas lattes with a year or so ago. You’ve changed and grown together—physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. By now, you’ve experienced the highs and lows of for better or for worse but you’re here today—stronger than ever—because you choose to fight for each other each day. There is simply nothing more romantic. 

Anniversaries

Anniversary sessions may be the sweetest. It’s a time to reflect on the life and love that you share without the stress of the wedding to distract from the moment. The wedding still gives you goose pimples, but the little ways you choose to love one another each day are anything but mundane. Think of the butterflies you still get when your lips linger, the way your hands fit so perfectly together and that deep-belly laugh that only he can unleash.

Marriage looks good on you, girl! It’s so good to see you again. The wedding and the honeymoon are over, but look how far you’ve come since that first smooch as Mr. + Mrs. This season of love is something to celebrate.

We want to remember that. And one day when we’re gone, we want our loved ones to remember that also. You are building your legacy in the way that you choose to love one another, and that deserves a proper showcase…

But really, it’s just a blast of a date night and a sneaky way for us to hang out again.

the details

I love my daters out there, but the anniversary session is a special documentary experience between a married couple. Held all year round, your session doesn’t need to fall on your actual anniversary, but it is a celebration of the vows that were taken on that sacred day.

 The first year of marriage is often the hardest. It can be difficult to pick up after the wedding high and resume regular life. After planning for months, sometimes years, and then suddenly the flurry of excitement is over in mere hours—it’s a shock to the system. The anniversary session marks an accomplishment. So, let’s keep the party going, shall we? Dress up, slow-dance during golden hour (1-2 hours before sunset), and then plan a fun night out. You both deserve it.

Anniversary sessions may be taken under one condition: marriage.
