We are beyond excited to share our anniversary session in VENICE with you today! A total dream come true!!
We knew we wanted photos that would help us remember everything about this time in our lives and freeze the moment and emotions forever
When we first started planning
our five year wedding anniversary trip, we talked about how much we would love
to do our anniversary session in Europe, but we never dreamed
we would get this lucky! We spent almost a month traveling through seven countries and over thirty cities and truly had the adventure of our lives
. We saw more than we ever imagined and even got to photograph a romantic engagement session in Ireland
that had us pinching ourselves. The only thing that was left to make this a truly perfect trip was figuring out a way to capture it. We knew we wanted photos that would help us remember everything about this time in our lives and freeze the moment and emotions forever.
Something that we could show our future children and grandchildren and reminisce about those two crazy kids who went on one heck of an adventure together. Well, wish granted! Luck would have it that our talented friend and Virginia photographer Annamarie Akins
who we met and fell in love with at the Connect Marriage Retreat in Georgia
also had planed to travel around Europe this summer, and once we realized it was possible for us to coordinate both of our crazy calendars, the next thing we knew, we were receiving the cutest anniversary gift from Annamarie
in the mail and planning our session in VENICE!! We almost died. Can you die from sheer anticipation? We almost did.
We met up with Annamarie and her husband Ryan on the very last day of our trip, and we were so excited to see them. They’ve become great friends of ours, and after almost a month of traveling alone, nothing felt better than spending time with familiar, friendly faces like theirs. We talked for hours, explored the city, had a fabulous Italian dinner and showed them our favorite gelato spot, but in between all that, we got to do our dream session in Venice! We’re so excited to share some of our favorites with you today! We had such a hard time narrowing them down because we love SO MANY! Annamarie, thank you for giving us the gift of a lifetime! We will cherish these forever!
