Recently, I've been able to photograph a ton more anniversary sessions for couples that just want to document their love! I LOVE that this is becoming more common! So often couples will focus on celebrating their relationship before they're married with engagement sessions, but I love it when they remember to take the time to stop and rejoice in the years that they've made it through! Marriage, although it's a wonderful thing, isn't always easy and I love capturing the maturity and experience in couples that have made it through some difficult first years.
Clint and Jenelle are one such couple in our small group that really really wanted to celebrate their 5th year anniversary by taking an evening to get their adorable faces in front of my camera! Well, I think it was mostly Jenelle's idea... but Clint warmed up after a little bit too! :)
Sunil went to college with both Clint and Jenelle, and we were THRILLED when God brought them to Kansas City. We pounced on them right away and are so excited that they now live less than a mile from us! Yay for close friends!
Jenelle is such a little rascal. Ok, maybe a BIG rascal! :) She loves to tease and have a good time, and brings such life to any conversation!
Clint may seem quiet and reserved at first, but he is such an easy person to sit down and have a conversation with. And he's an expert listener! ;)
More than anything, they love to explore new places and try new things together! They're always up for an adventure when they can be together.
Jenelle grew up in the country in Ohio and she was so excited to do their photo shoot out in the field! It looked gorgeous at sunset!
LOVE this one! :)
I think I have a million and a half outtakes from our session! In this photo, Clint was being all sweet and putting her ring back on her finger after I had photographed some close ups of it. He made some sort of goofy comment (you can tell by the smug look on his face) and Jenelle gave me the perfect "oh brother!" look. Anyone who knows them knows that this happens ALL the time. I just love how it sums up their relationship!! :)
Clint and Jenelle, you know we love you guys! Thanks so much for being brave and allowing me to photograph you - finally! :) Can't wait for what God will do in the next 5 years of your marriage! Love you!
