While I love photographing new love and weddings, photographing vow renewals/anniversary sessions has a very special place in my heart. There is something so different and unique about photographing a couple who has experienced lot’s of life together. Couples who have celebrated together through extreme highs and who have held each other through the dark lows of life. When Leigh contacted me about shooting their vow renewal, I was so excited. They have been married eight years and their love for each other is deep. I loved watching them repeat vows to each other knowing that they had history and the meaning to the words they said, had substance and rang true.
They were so much fun to photograph, at times it was like I wasn’t even there and they were just cuddling together on a summer day. Rain threatened to cut our session short the whole evening but it held off until the very end and we actually welcomed it, with darling kissing in the rain photos! Now what girl doesn’t want photos of them kissing their love in the rain??!!??
Wade and Leigh, you guys are perfect. I love seeing you, eight years into marriage, having experienced life’s trials, but still so much in love and passionate about each other. So happy I got to experience a little of what you guys share and I pray that God grants you many more years of loving each other.
