A First Anniversary Among the Monuments Sweethearts January 24, 2021 I absolutely love every time a past wedding couple chooses to have an anniversary session in celebration of completing their first year as husband & wife! With the first traditional gift for the first anniversary being paper, a portrait session, resulting in beautiful photographic prints, is the perfect gift! (hint, hint) Using these photos to update any wall gallery alongside your wedding images is a great anniversary gift idea!I loved capturing this anniversary session with Khadeeja & Mohamad. When we first started chatting about this session in December, there were so many possibilities! With Khadeeja & Mohamad traveling to DC from Pittsburgh for this session we had loads of locations to choose from. Ultimately we ended up with a Sunrise morning at the Lincoln Memorial.Their wedding day in January 2020 was beautiful, but filled with lots of rain. So of course as we watched the weather forecast leading up to the session as the experts (really?) started to call for rain, we knew it was right. We did have a rainy night leading into our session together but just as we were set to start shooting the skies dried and we were able to move forward as originally planned.I loved capturing this anniversary session with Khadeeja & Mohamad. They have been so supportive of my business and I always love an excuse to hang out with them again! Enjoy these photos from our fun session in our nation’s capital, on a picture-perfect winter morning, rain puddles and all! These keepsakes will be forever cherished and enjoyed through generations!
