anniversary photos

In - Home Hangs

Janelle and Beau were SO fun to meet!

I showed up to their apartment excited because Janelle and I talked about them making drinks and a cheese board. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint! Beau made drinks for everyone as I pet their sweet dog (and that’s enough to capture my heart right there). Beau handed me that little glass of the first old-fashioned I had ever liked up to that point and well, lets just say a good drink brings people together!

I felt an instant connection with these two and that had a huge part in the photos being some of my favorite to date! These in-home vibes are what my cozy dreams are made of and if you think that’s weird, well, see for yourself!

I loved that Janelle and Beau weren’t afraid to get a little vulnerable and make out in front of me and get nice and cozy in bed together while I stood above them snapping away!

Cheers to ALL the in-home sessions and doggy cuddles!

Sunrise Anniversary

Shannon + John’s Anniversary Session at Rattle Snake Lake

Ohhhh gosh, where to begin! Shannon and John were seriously INCREDIBLE to work with! They woke up far too early to drive to rattle snake lake on their anniversary to shoot with me!

John and Shannon were so enthusiastic and let me guide them through the whole session. They went along with all my ideas including a champagne pop! It was their anniversary after all, I couldn’t just show up empty handed!

We laughed through the whole morning, with moments of holding back tears (mostly me) as they spoke the softest, sweetest words to each other and reminisced back to their early years. They met and got married within 3 short months and they proved everyone wrong on their 14 wedding anniversary (YEAH, 14!) They’ve got 3 kids now and are more in love than that first day they met! When you know, you know and finding your person is the best feeling in the world. So why not jump in head first with your lover and best friend?!

I was so honored to be able to capture them in this stage of life, completely in love after so many years!

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the photos and the experience I was able to have with these two! They made the early morning wake up well worth it, and lets just be real, they are total #marriagegoals!

Also, scroll to the bottom to find out why Shannon is totally my spirit animal (other than the fact that we have the same name)!
