Meet Andrew and Maria. One year of marriage down and they make it look easy! I love these two so much, they are dear friends and a year ago I had the pleasure of singing at their wedding for their first dance! Marriage isn't always as easy as a dance in a field of wildflowers. Its a lot of gritty, hard work and choosing every day to love someone else more than yourself. But these two are committed to growing in their faith on the journey.
We headed to downtown Norfolk on a sunny Sunday evening and the weather and lighting couldn't have been better... all the heart eyes for this gorgeous pair! Months ago when Maria I met for lunch at a cafe she mentioned they wanted one year anniversary portraits and I was so thrilled.
This is the first time I have done a session like this celebrating one year and I think it is a fantastic gift to yourself! (Okay, so they are on their way to the Bahamas and that is pretty amazing too) ;)
These two couldn't take a bad picture if they tried, they love each other so much and were so relaxed and easy to work with. They have been together for so many years through school and now here they are forging ahead and trusting God in all the details of their lives together. I am so thankful to capture such beautiful love stories like this! Happy Anniversary, you two...love you!
