Anniversary sessions are my favorite type of photoshoot. There is something so moving about photographing couples who have committed themselves to each other and who live that commitment every day… Choosing one another each morning… Capturing this type of love story is an immense honor. Lauren and Joel’s 10 year wedding anniversary connection session was no exception. I have the joy of knowing and loving these two extraordinary humans and got to witness the beginning of their love story, so I was extra excited to photograph them on their anniversary… They are a couple who strive to always put each other first, to actively show their love, and to never falter in their tenderness.
Why Anniversary Sessions Are Important
I have had the privilege of being a Big Sur wedding and elopement photographer for years now, and it is truly a joy meeting and working with each and every couple who crosses my path. I love finding new ways to tell each story, since every single couple is different and unique! As a fine art Monterey wedding and elopement photographer, I can tell you: There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to capturing couples… There is no guide book that gives the perfect step-by-step instructions, because the truth of the matter is: No two sessions should ever be identical. Just as the fact that every couple has their own inside jokes, reasons they fight, ways they snuggle, it also is fact that all couples deserve their own special set of images to tell their story.
