Josh and Meri's Anniversary Session and Upcoming Events

When I was planning this session,

I was thinking of a couple different things, one: that I wanted to start photographing couples that are already married and wanted to celebrate their love all over again (in front of the camera) and two: because I feel that I have learned SO much over these past two years that I felt like it was time to share that knowledge! So, this is both a post about anniversary sessions, or what I want to call, "I still 'DO' " annnnnd to announce I will be hosting my very first workshop later this fall!!!! 

My friend and second shooter Cameron came along with us to better help me get a feel for shooting and teaching at the same time...it is not as easy as it looks, but I am determined to get it right and I have a lot I would love to share! More on that at the bottom of this post...

But first..a little bit about my two friends and amazingly beautiful couple, the Benadums. As soon as I knew these two were dating three years ago, I just knew it was a match made in Heaven..they are some of the most considerate, giving, and wise people I know, not to mention very photogenic! They tied the knot two years ago and I was honored to be the one to be a part of that celebration and spend the evening with them. They truly bring light into every situation they are in.

So cute, right?

Since you don't have to take into consideration a wedding theme for these photos like you would with an engagement session, I thought it would be fun to incorporate some kind of meaningful theme for Josh and Meri.  They said they like to read in the park and relax together, so....that's what we did :)
