Rachel + Tony | Golden Fields Anniversary

The wedding is chapter one. After the cake is cute and the guests have gone home, your love story enters a new stage, and one that I dare say is more important than the wedding itself. The beautiful party you throw on your wedding day is filled with moments and memories that deserve to be captured and cherished for generations to come.

But the life you live every day after that will create who you are as a couple. It will change you; you will grow and cease to be the people you were 1, 5, 10, 50 years from when you said your vows.

The love you share though? That will remain. If you change your career, if kids fill your schedules, if your job moves you away from extended family, if the stress of life just bogs you down... that love is there to ground you.

The story of how you got to you 1st, 5th, 10th, or 50th chapter of your love story is to be celebrated! And in the buzz of life, it's important to take time to look in each other's eyes, hold on to one another tightly, and remember all the good in life that brought the two of you together.

I'm so happy to introduce Anniversary Sessions, and couldn't have asked for a sweeter celebration than the 1 year anniversary of Rachel and Tony. We photographed their romantic, garden wedding last July, and as they venture into their 2nd year of marriage, I was lucky enough to capture the love that keeps on growing.
