I love this couple!
I have known Steph and Reid ever since my husband got me networking in the community. Its probably about 7 years now. About 6 years ago Steph and Reid came to me wanting to do a couple’s shoot. Later I found out it was a gift for their anniversary.
They wanted something different, something I call “conceptual”. It needed to be very unique to them.
We all looked through magazine, high fashion magazines for inspiration. We looked at what they were drawn to and made something of their own from it. I love doing this kind of work, it’s what I trained for. I don’t always do this kind of work, its only when people specifically ask for it.
Whenever you feel the need to do one. I find that people with specific milestone anniversaries are the ones wanting to have this kind of service. An anniversary photo session in this case was for their tenth wedding anniversary. I am personally a fan of the number 5 so I would celebrate 5, 10, 15, 20, etc.
Do you just want an updated image or a conceptual session? If you want a simple session in the park that means you just want updated images. If you want something unique to you, something you can dress up for, something that really marks the year then you want a conceptual anniversary photo session.
This is just to give an idea into what goes into a session like this.
Anniversary photo sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph and talk about.
