We talk about engagement portraits, bridal portraits and wedding photography but I don’t talk much about another type of portrait session that I simply adore… Couples and Anniversary Portraits!
Obviously, life gets busy for every one of us. Our job, coming home to deal with everything that must be done before we crawl into bed, wake up, repeat. Have kids and they say this multiplies by the hundreds, LOL!
For your anniversary I hope you plan a special trip together to a place you’ve never seen or a familiar place that NEVER gets old! But there’s also one other thing I hope you’ll consider doing each anniversary… a photo session centered all-around YOU GUYS!
This photoshoot can be as formal, or as casual as you’d like. Maybe even mix it up! One year have formal style photos created, and the next year opt for a more casual look.
Now before you say “Who even has time for this!?” Plan it in advance! 2-3 months even! Talk with your photographer for ideas on what you can do to make it a little more personal for you if you’d like, but never underestimate the elegance of just a classic photoshoot with beautiful clothing. No props, no added stress, etc. Just bring yourselves!
In the event of bad weather think outside the box – like a few shots at your favorite local coffee shop and then go to the bookstore of your choice for a few cute shots! Reading not your thing? Maybe a museum that allows photography indoors? You can even do a quiet session at home in a cute pair of PJ’s with your cats! So many possibilities!!!
