You know what my favorite email is? Well, after the “We are having a baby!” email, my favorite email to get from a bride and groom of mine is the “We want to do an anniversary shoot!” email. I love that email, that email makes me happy. So there was some jumping around, and minor fist pumping when I got an email from Mike saying he wanted to surprise Lyndsay with a session for their first anniversary. I kept the fist pumping dignified though, don’t worry. So we met up with our most beloved Lyndsay and Mike in midtown and rocked out one of my most favorite shoots EVER!
As many of you know the first anniversary is the paper anniversary. Lyndsay wanted to try and incorporate paper into the shoot and we were lucky enough to be passing a magazine store so we stopped in for some quick pics. Oh, and since Lyndsay and Mike just happen to be on the back cover of Real Weddings Magazine, we got a shot of that too. It’s all coming full circle!
And then we were off to get a little grungier. You know me, if it’s filthy and smells bad and we’re a little worried for our safety then it’s the best possible place to take some pictures. Luckily, Lyndsay and Mike agreed and we were off!
Since Lyndsay and Mike love their car as deeply as I love my own (which is a deep love that has only been supplanted by the love I have for my husband and child) we decided to rock some pictures that included it. Also, since Mike is famous for jumping I had to make him jump too. I love boys who jump!
Since we were going strong we threw one more location onto the fire… a laundromat. Luckily it was empty as it was almost 10pm, but it was still beautiful. We had a lot of fun rocking some pictures of our happy pair. We made Lyndsay sit in a basket this time though.
Thanks to Lyndsay and Mike for KILLING IT yet again. I can never tell you how much I adore you – so I will show you with a SLIDESHOW HERE and in the box below. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your life together. We adore you! Also, a HUGE thank you to my beloved Beth Baugher of True Love Photo. Beth shot their wedding with me last year, and just happened to be around when I was shooting their family portraits last fall and then JUST HAPPENED to show up for this shoot as well! I fully expect Beth will be cracking open a coke in the waiting room when Lyndsay and Mike have babies. Thanks for everything Bethie… I adore you and you know it! Enjoy the slideshow everybody!
