Our one year wedding anniversary was coming up, and I’d been thinking and thinking about what to get my husband. I thought of all your typical gifts – scotch, clothes, electronics – but nothing about them was exciting to me. They were all things that I’d given to him before, and I wanted to think of something that would be really special…I mean, we’d made it through our first year of marriage!!! Not always an easy feat!! haha It took me a little while to come up with the idea of doing a photoshoot…but once I did, I couldn’t believe it hadn’t come to me sooner. It was perfect! Not only was it a chance to re-connect with my hubby after a full year of marriage and bring us back to the roots of why we got married in the first place…but it was a chance to wear my wedding dress again! I pitched the idea to Bry and he loved it too. And so it began…the planning and coordinating of what we would wear, and where we would shoot. I knew that I wanted to wear my wedding dress and we decided Bryan would wear dress pants and a dress shirt, but not a full suit. And then…LINDOR! We thought that it would super fun to turn our one year anniversary shoot into a little family shoot and include our fur baby. And so we did exactly that!
I hope that this photoshoot inspires you to do something spontaneous and fun after your wedding, giving you a chance to get all dolled up again and put on that gorgeous gown! You won’t regret it!
All of these shots were captured by Alex Lee of Young Hearts Photography and we love them. I hope you do too!
