As much as I adore weddings, there is a special place in my heart for anniversary sessiona. Marriage is hard work, ya'll, and each year a couple goes through hand in hand, through the beautiful moments and the painful moments, is something to be celebrated and documented! Which brings me to today's Washington DC anniversary session captured by Novaes Photography. Yes, this is one good looking and super stylish duo, but what brings me chills is the expression of love and respect in each of their eyes when they look at each other and their touching words below. They get it.
From the couple... After our marriage in October 2016, Krishaun and I spent the next year planning and navigating our life to promote love, hope, and joy through our love as husband and wife. We spent the year working towards building a foundation for our future family and worked tirelessly to become the best versions of ourselves with these new found roles. As newlyweds, we focused monthly on our vision as a couple. The 15th of every month finds us having what we call “navigator’s conferences” – moments when we take the time to remove ourselves from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and focus on our marriage – physically, mentally, and spiritually. During this time we reflect on what’s working in the marriage, what can be improved, and what aspirations we have not only for our marriage, but also most importantly for each of us as individuals. Although being husband and wife are our first and foremost roles, we understand that we are individuals who yearn to grow. We act as one another’s personal cheerleader, pushing one another to continue to strive for excellence. The first year of marriage was a phenomenal time of growth and love. We traveled, we laughed, we lived, and we loved. We developed a deep partnership focused on building a legacy and look forward to the years to come.
