Okay, I know every photographer says this but when another photographer asks you to photograph them, it is a HUGE honor!! I will never get over it. Jessica is an amazing photographer herself and she not only let me in on a little secret that she was pregnant before she told the world (I felt really loved even though I know she mainly had to tell me so she could schedule her shoot before she started showing… haha!) but just the fact that she wanted ME to capture hers and her husband’s once a year anniversary photos truly felt so special.
I actually hadn’t met Jess before their shoot but I knew of her and she is seriously an angel! She and her husband both are truly the kindest souls and it was one of those shoots where I felt like I had met a long lost sister. We chatted all things photography, Hawaii, and even a little bit about family life since she was expecting. It was so fun! We had such a nice day at UVA and as always, campus is such a lovely backdrop for some good classic Charlottesville photos.
I even brought along my film camera for this shoot because I knew Jess would enjoy it and not mind since she’s a photographer herself. 🙂 I don’t do that often but I was feeling extra inspired this day! You may not be able to notice but I threw in a few film shots below. They turned out really nicely!
Jess and Steve, thanks for having me do your anniversary photos!!! I am so glad I got to meet you two before we move!!! <3
