Creating a Meaningful Anniversary Session
Celebrating the first year, or any year of marriage, can be special with simple documentation. We love the couple's session with photographer Mary Doughtery. Our favorite details include eating the top layer of their wedding cake, from Scratch Bake Shop, and donning their wedding dress and suit for a few romantic moments. Here is what Mary had to share with us:
An anniversary session was something they knew they wanted to do, for reasons important to them, and you would likely have your own reasons to take the time for photos – anniversary session or not. It was not just a chance to get in front of the camera, but a chance to celebrate where they had been in the last year. Life was different and yet very much the same. As high school sweethearts, they had a long history. Their lives were connected and intertwined in a beautiful way. To love someone and be loved in return is one of the greatest parts of the human experience.
Ali + Zach's anniversary session was split into two parts : one that was relaxed and at home and the second part of the shoot was dressed up with Ali in her gorgeous Sarah Janks gown and Zach in a linen suit.
