We can hardly believe that it’s already been 1 year since Jacqueline & Christian got married! It was a very warm, April day at the Historic Jasmine Plantation and we had just found out about a month before that we were expecting our first child. Although it was very warm, their day was so beautiful and we were so excited to be able to capture the blessed union of these two. At the end of the night, we told them we were expecting and their excitement for us was so evident. Through social networks, they got to watch as my belly grew through the rest of our wedding season and we got to watch as they adventured through their first year of marriage together. Being a part of our couples lives both before and after their wedding day is one of our favorite parts of our “job.” We love our couples and, more times than not, we walk away with new friends. We love cheering on our couples and we are always so blown away when our couples choose to celebrate our joys with us too. Because this was an anniversary session and we knew that they wanted to meet him, we decided to bring our “third shooter” along for this session (check out the cute selfie at the end!). We love Jacqueline & Christian so much and it was so fun to get them in front of our cameras again!
Pleasure House Point by the Brock Environmental Center is such a hidden gem in Virginia Beach. With the tall grass and short trees, this area has a kind of West Coast, dessert feel to it. We visited this location for the first time a few weeks ago for another session and knew that it would be a great location for these two to capture some anniversary portraits for them. As we walked around, we loved listening to them reminisce about their last year of marriage and all that they’ve learned about each other and about themselves during it. We also talked a lot about how happy we are that we have been able to capture these beautiful memories for them and we’re excited to keep doing it in the future. We ended the night by the pier off Shore Drive and said goodbye to them and the sun with the promise that we will get together for dinner next time they are in town.
Christian & Jacqueline, we’re still so glad you picked us to be your wedding photographers and we’re so excited to have a part in your story. Congratulations on 1 year of marriage and we’re praying blessing over you all for many, many more years!
Happy Anniversary, you two! We’re so thankful to celebrate with you!
Michael & Chelsea
