Wedding anniversary photo sessions are a wonderful way to celebrate your marriage. In my opinion they are one of my most meaningful ways of splurging on the anniversary of the wedding. I am a bit nostalgic and maybe it’s part of me aging a bit but I find incredible value in good photography. One of the ways to invest in your family’s legacy is to do the yearly photo shoot that falls around your wedding day or any other life’s milestone for that matter.
Sasha and Mike have been doing a photo shoot every year since they got married in 2017. I was honored to be their wedding photographer (see their story here). For the fifth year anniversary, they decided to venture with me to Chicago’s lakefront on a beautiful May afternoon. We casually explored the woods at Montrose Beach Bird Sanctuary for the first hour of the session. After that they sported their original wedding attire and we leisurely walked around my favorite Chicago lakefront area at Montrose Beach. Their anniversary photo session felt so meaningful and authentic and I was humbled to be part of these moments. I hope we can get together again for their 10, 15 and 20 years anniversary (darn, thinking of it makes me feel kind of old).
