People get Engagement photos before they are married, so why not get Anniversary photos, AFTER they are married? I think surviving a year of marriage is a bigger achievement than just planning to get married. So do Robin and Wes, the happy couple I had the opportunity to photograph last weekend for their 1 year anniversary. They were even happier than many engaged couples I know, which speaks highly about their relationship. Thanks for being so adorably smitten with each other, y’all!
All photos taken with Canon 6D and 50mm f/1.2L, RAW format, processed in Lightroom and finished in Photoshop
An internet tradition for the month of November up until Thanksgiving is writing something you are thankful for every day. I won’t slam Facebook with the cheesy status updates, but why not try to blog it? Let’s see if I can do this…
The first thing I’m thankful for (and I will add to this list) is my boyfriend of 4 years, Ryan. (Of COURSE he is first!) WHY? Because he puts up with me. Because he left his entire family and all of his friends in his home state of Minnesota to live in my much warmer state of Georgia. Because he is SO smart. Because he helped get me through pharmacy school. Because he is my coworker and we haven’t killed each other yet. Because he helps me with problems at work. Because he helps me with problems at home. Because he is a good listener. Because he is mature. Because he is trustworthy. Because he is reliable and a good provider. Because he loves animals as much as I do, and helps take good care of all of my furry children. Because he does dishes and laundry, and never complains about it. Because he knows when to ask for help. Because he knows not to wake me up from a nap. Because he kisses me on the forehead. Because he calls me “dear.” Because he has good genes. Because he comes from a wonderful family. Because he loves me for who I am and doesn’t try to change me. Because he UNDERSTANDS me. Because he isn’t perfect, but his imperfections are all things I can live with. Because he is the best person I’ve ever met in my life. Because he is Ryan. And because I love him.
