Amazingly enough, we’re coming up on our 10th wedding anniversary in June- I don’t know where the time has gone, but I’m looking forward to celebrating! We have dinner booked at Husk (one of our favorites) for our actual anniversary, and we’re trying to plan a trip for sometime in the next few months (if you have suggestions, I’m all ears!).
One thing we have been able to check off our list was having our anniversary photos taken, even though it didn’t start out as our idea. We’re friends with an amazing photographer, Reese Moore of Reese Moore Photography…I wish we had known HER ten years ago when we were choosing a photographer (she does beautiful work)! Recently, after an afternoon of pickling cucumbers, we talked about doing anniversary photo shoot. I was tickled to have Reese offer to take these photos of us, and so thankful that we would have them. Life goes so quickly and I think it will be such a treat to have this time and these photographs to mark such an important milestone.
Obviously, my first stop was on Pinterest to find some outfit inspiration, and it seems like most of the ten year photos incorporate children which makes sense (we don’t have any yet) and I saw a lot of wedding dresses, which I’m not sure I’m into. Apparently many people buy a new wedding dress and do a wedding-type photo shoot/party. Rather than going toward a full-on wedding redux, I chose this swiss dot shirt dress in white, which was already in my closet, to give a subtle nod do all things wedding without going over the top.
We started our photoshoot at our house so that our sweet dog could be in some of them (good thing we did…she was the star of the show). I loved having photos of us in and around our house and one of the ideas that Reese came with was to have us hold one of our framed wedding photos on our front porch, which turned out so well. After our house, we traveled to Laurel Hill County Park in Mt. Pleasant, which has a really charming oak allée as well as some stunning scenery, and proved a perfect backdrop for further photographing. It also was the scene for my favorite photo from the day. Once we finished there (it was relatively quick, since it got a little buggy), we hit up Red Drum for brunch (yum) where table french toast made a delicious appearance.
Fast forward a quick couple of weeks, and Reese surprised us by posting these amazing photos online and we couldn’t be happier! Check them out below! If you looking for a photographer, I highly recommend Reese- she’s a talented photographer, and more importantly, a wonderful person.
