Over the years I've been photographing more and more anniversary sessions and I have to say I really like this trend! So often we dedicate important milestones in our life to images like weddings and babies. But I truly believe that life is worth documenting at every step of the way, not just in the big things. Your love doesn't just end on the wedding day, it grows and matures, changes and deepens with time, I think that is worth honoring!! Anniversary sessions are the perfect way to do that, hey I speak from experience!! Our own anniversary session remains one of my fondest memories from our eight years together!!
So that brings me to Matt and Meg. These two love birds met in college, fell in love and have been married for five years now. In these past five years they have experienced quite a lot together. One of the biggest being the purchase and renovation of their sweet and quintessentially New England craftsman style cape. They even have a blog dedicated to all their house adventures, 18 Preston. They truly are a team in every sense of the word, balancing each other perfectly. They love to be outdoors, staying active and tackling home projects together. Everything they love in life they share with each other, a reflection of their deep friendship.
One of the things that they love most is wine and visiting the vineyards in Napa and Sonoma valley. Meg is always quite crafty and loves DIY projects and good food. So when their fifth wedding anniversary rolled around they both knew exactly how they wanted to celebrate : at a vineyard with some delicious food. And guess what? They invited me along to capture it all!
We met at Mill River Winery, a charming new winery on the North Shore. The day was met with very unpredictable weather, bright and sunny then suddenly cloudy and rainy. And though we had to duck inside to escape one nasty thundercloud, the weather managed to hold off long enough so we could capture some beautiful photos together.
I'll let the images do the talking from here on out, one of my favorite sessions from this year!! Enjoy Matt and Meg's sweet vineyard inspired anniversary session!!
