Way back in the summer I came across a great idea over at Make Mine a Mojito. Mojito Maven did a photo shoot to commemorate their first anniversary and I obviously got on that bandwagon. I'm actually kind of mad I didn't think of it myself; let's think about it - beautiful photos (engagement-shoot style) to celebrate a full year of wedded bliss? Yes, please. Of course, I'm going to take it one step further and do family photos every year around our anniversary. It's going to be a great way to get nice photos of all of us every year, and just in time for holiday cards, too!
For our anniversary shoot, I looked at a ton of photographers in the area, but everyone's prices were super serious (ie out of our price range) for location shoots. I think that pictures done in a studio are nice, but I really wanted to shoot in downtown Annapolis, where we were married. As a last ditch effort, I posted an ad on CraigsList looking for someone to do our anniversary shoot... and not even 2 hours later I had an email from Gene of Eugene Huskey Photography. We emailed back and forth for a while and ended up booking him that night! My disc just came in and we're thrilled with the results.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Haha, looking through the disc I realized that about half of them are me and him making out. Awesome. I'm excited to continue this tradition - I'm already picturing a thick album of anniversary photos out on the cake table at our 50th anniversary!
For those wondering about the anniversary gift exchange, I have a post coming up for you! And hey, anyone else on the anniversary shoot bandwagon? Or am I the only one?
