What did you do or will you do for your one year wedding anniversary? Many couples will go out to a fancy dinner to celebrate the union of their love, or even do a weekend getaway. And if you do gifts, the traditional present is paper, and the more modern selection is a clock (why? don't ask me, this is what Google has said it is).
I have created special commissioned watercolor paintings for first wedding anniversary presents, bit this is the first time I had the pleasure of photographing the couple in this part of their journey of husband and wife.
Llesenia and Eron met me at the beautiful grounds of Deepwood Estates on a semi-cool evening (remember in Oregon it has been hot lately), so it was quite refreshing. Llesenia even showed off her crafty side by creating a (very Pinterest worthy) wooden sign to use during their session. The wooden heart sign wasn't the only special item she brought; she brought along her wedding shoes!
We found so many beautiful places to take photos by just walking around the historic house, and up on the covered deck. There were two distinct gazeboes, one that reminded us of a wire cage for two lovebirds and the other was like it was in a hidden secret garden. Plus the carriage house and garden helped round everything off, and you can't forget about a little barefoot (for Llesenia) dancing under the giant Maple tree and Eron giving her a surprise dip and kiss.
It was an amazing evening at a magical location with two lovebirds. I would love to share all of their photos right now, because they are all so beautiful.
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
