It's been on my heart to celebrate marriage with anniversary sessions for quite sometime (our own session by Katelyn James will forever be an incredible memory for us!), and last Thursday that dream came true. Many local creatives came together and rallied around this vision to bring together a STUNNING spring inspired anniversary session at Glen Magna Farms. It was one of the most perfect days of the year, a beautiful gift for this amazing couple.
Who are the beautiful duo you may ask? Kate & James better known as the Feds, well known wedding photographers in the New England area. Kate & James have been married for 11 years and are Mom and Dad to four beautiful girls and one handsome boy. As wedding photographers, over the past 11 years, they have rarely been in front of the camera. Last Thursday they dropped everything, escaped for the afternoon together. As a fellow photographer, it was an HONOR to celebrate their commitment and all that they have experienced together with an anniversary session.
You might be wondering why I am so passionate about anniversary sessions. I mean what's the point right? I truly believe that marriage is something that should be celebrated long after the wedding day. Day after day, through commitment, sacrifice, and pouring into one another, a marriage truly becomes more and more beautiful as the years go on. And yet we only celebrate marriage at the very beginning. Whether you have been married for 1 year, 4 years, 10 years or more, your commitment is one to be cherished. Anniversary sessions are a way of celebrating marriage and all that encompasses long after the wedding day has ended.
Throughout our time together Kate kept saying she felt like royalty. Or if you're from Massachusetts "A Kennedy!" She let out a little giggle whenever James would pull her in tight. James couldn't help but embrace his beautiful wife and whisper in her each just how much he loved her. To watch as these two slowly let the world melt away, reconnect and fall more in love made my heart soar. Because that right there is why I love these sessions mean so much!
Here's to you James & Kate, I hope these images remind you of all you have achieved together!!
