Since I specialize in lifestyle family photography, I only do a select few couples/weddings each year. However, when Sarah contacted me about doing photos of her and her husband, Jonathan... I know this couple's session would be special. :)

You see, they've been married for 11 years now, and still hate (and I mean hate!) their original wedding photos. (No, literally - those are Sarah's words!)

So when they approached me about doing  a formal anniversary shoot - I squealed!

You'd never be able to tell that she's had kids - you are SO beautiful, Sarah!

One of Sarah's only cherished photos from her wedding day is a photo of Jonathan inspecting the back of her wedding dress, and how it perfectly captures his amazing attention to detail. So we recreated the moment. :)

Sarah informed me that she picked hydrangeas from her backyard only a few minutes before she left - I loved her unique and personal bouquet. :)

Sarah and Jonathan, thank you thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your amazing relationship! Can't wait to meet the rest of the family. :) All the best to you both!
