What’s better than an engagement session? Anniversary session!! Ashley and Harry have been married four years this month, go love! Ashley is a portrait photographer here in Grand Rapids – we met a few years ago when we were both just starting out. I shot her best friend’s wedding in 2009, and we’ve kept in touch ever since. I was SO excited when she said that she and Harry wanted to do a session! They are completely adorable together, and super fun too! We laughed through their entire session. I didn’t know Harry as well before, but now I feel like I’ve known him for ages. He’s hilarious!! I can see why they like each other so much 😉 When we were talking about style and what they wanted in a session, they each had their own idea. Harry wanted city, Ashley wanted country. Harry, technology. Ashley, books and romance. I feel like we did two whole separate sessions! So… um… there’s a lot of pictures, I had a lot of favorites! We started downtown…
This half is Ashley’s pick, and my favorite too! If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know I love romantic, dreamy, glowy sessions like these… ahhhh… love!
I love this one!! We planned the shot – her with vintage books, him and his iPad. But this actual shot was the first frame – just me testing the light. It ended up being my favorite from the set!
We played a fun little game with a vintage framed chalkboard. Thought it would be fun for an anniversary session. I had them write down what drives them crazy about each other, and what they love most about each other. I won’t include the first ones… they’re hilarious, but Ashley would probably kill me if I published them!! So I’ll just put the reactions, and the nice ones 🙂
Amazing light + beautiful couple + field of wildflowers…. A very very very happy Kristen 🙂
Ashley and Harry, I absolutely adore you! I had such a great time, so glad we did this!! Your love will be an inspiration to all the newly engaged and married couples out there! Here’s to many more happy years!! 🙂
