This Silver Falls anniversary session is really special to me. When you look at these two, you really wouldn't know that they've been married for 10 years and have 3 adorable babies together. They still look at each other like they just fell in love and it warms the freaking heck out of my heart. We thought Silver Falls would be the perfect location for a moody anniversary shoot and it suuuure was.
It's always a good idea to get images taken of you and your special someone but this case was a little more unique. Melissa shared with me that when they got married they were unable to afford a photographer and it was a regret they'd carried with them for a decade. It's so special for me that I get to create art like this with people who will value and cherish it for generations.
Of course I think everyone should invest as much as they can into photography for their wedding day but in some situations if you just can't, totally make sure to get anniversary sessions so you're able to capture how you and your cutie grow together each year.
When we got to Silver Falls there were little patches of snow all over! We avoided them though because we all wanted a spring look to the shoot. This is the 4th time I'd been there in the last year so I got to see it in all seasons! It's crazy how different it looks in each one. We explored the area around the falls and took some images in the forest before the hike down. These cuties were even brave enough to hop into the FREEZING cold water. They're amazing and I love them.
We truly had a rainy Oregon adventure and I'll never forget this moody anniversary session. Happy anniversary, cuties!!
