When I met up with Brynn and Parker, there was a beautiful light in the early morning and fresh smells were in the air. Brynn had a twinkle in her eye as she talked about how handsome Parker looked. Married for one year, the sweetest continued on as they reminisced in telling me about how they met, and how they got engaged and so forth. In celebration of their one year anniversary, these two were about to embark on an adventure together later that day. The energy was high and the love was real. Happy anniversary again, B + P!
When I saw Sheniqua for the first time, her elegant look matched the sweet demeanor of her voice over the phone perfectly. Her and Lionel showed up holding hands, looking dashing as ever. It was a steamy summer day, but that didn't stop these two from stealing the show. Lionel grew up in New Orleans so he was all about the culture, music, and vibes of this city. He would throw in some stories about his childhood, and growing up in New Orleans as we moved about. Sheniqua looked at him with loving eyes. Going on 5 years and keeping the love strong is a beautiful thing. Congratulations again to these two!
When Dave contacted me over the phone about doing an anniversary session, I knew off the bat that these two were going to be a delight to work with. Little did I know, until I met them both, how very delightful their session would actually be. And to put the icing on the cake, they wanted the location to be in one of the city's oldest cemeteries, which is exactly where I have been wanting to shoot ever since moving to New Orleans. The session started off there, on the exact day of their 10 year anniversary. The air was crisp, but the light was ever so soft. I felt connected to them both, like we had been friends before now. Anne-Michelle's confidence was striking. The way Dave looked at her and would gently move the hair out of her eyes showed a beautiful understanding. This is Anne-Michelle & Dave, after 10 years of an undying love.
These two have each other's hearts and I can feel the love every time I see them. Brittany and Michael, two of my closest friends, got married three years ago before moving out to San Francisco. Brittany and I became even closer when I moved out to SF and had the delight of being able to share our love for the city together over tea, wine, and dinners. For their 3 year anniversary celebration, they wanted to have some photos to cherish. We had a delightful day filled with brunch, paddle boating, and lots of laughter of course! So much love to these adorable lovebirds!
