Creative and Romantic Anniversary Photos on the Hiwassee River

Monica + Chandler got married 2 years ago and I had the honor of capturing their wedding day. Since then, I did their photos when they moved into their first home as well. I love being able to grow with and capture the special seasons in my client’s lives. Monica + Chandler are so special to me and I love working with them. So when they asked me to shoot some anniversary photos, it was an easy yes!

They LOVE being on their boat – it’s their favorite thing to do together.

Chandler told me that he wishes they could have gotten married on a lake, so I created this vision for them. Dreamy, romantic, and in their favorite place. Since they’re on the lake every chance they get, it just felt right!

We went out on their boat on the Hiwassee River, and they took me to their favorite sunset spot. We had the place to ourselves and it was the perfect backdrop for our session. The views couldn’t be beat. It was beautiful!

This session really was amazing. They are SO in love, and it was so sweet celebrating their wedding anniversary and our “shoot together” anniversary! When we shot together for the first time years ago, they were so cute and awkward in front of the camera. Now they’re naturals and make my job easy!

I went for a filmy vibe with these anniversary photos. Using props like the champagne and glasses helped with innate poses and capturing Monica + Chandler as natural as possible. I had a specific vision and I love how they turned out so far. I can’t wait to get back the developed film! 

Chandler talked about how he really wanted to jump in the water the whole time. At the end he did! We really had so much fun during this session capturing their anniversary photos!
