This. This is one of my all time favorite sessions. Stephanie and I started talking about doing an anniversary session over email, and I could not have been more excited. Not only did we have the most beautiful location picked out, but Stephanie sent me a photo of an incredible Leanne Marshall gown that she was planning on wearing and I just about lost it! And to top it off, it’s the exact same gown Carrie Underwood wore to host the CMA’s recently. So not only was I in love with the dress itself, but even a little starstruck by the previous owner!
I was already anticipating it being a beautiful session but it was even better than I could have imagined. Kilham Farms, tucked in the hills of Nicasio, CA was the perfect backdrop. Stephanie and Patrick arrived (and yes, she is even more stunning in person!), and we went exploring through this beautiful farm, taking gorgeous photos and petting all of the horses!
As we started shooting, I realized that I didn’t even have to do much directing! These two melted into each other so beautifully and were full of little kisses and laughs the entire session! They are the perfect match, and I was so honored to capture their love in celebration of their anniversary.
