Are you celebrating your anniversary soon? Wondering what to do?! What is cuter than to drive back to the wedding venue and have photos taken of where life is one, five, ten years later?! As a wedding photographer, I get a handful of couples who want to get together for anniversary photos. Caren is a local Philadelphia lifestyle photographer based out of Pennsburg, PA. Caren and Matt were celebrating their one year anniversary and met me at John James Audubon Center, right where they had there wedding! This was by far my favorite anniversary spot. Walking around the Audubon center from the tree lined drive to the Mill grove mansion listening to them reminisce about their wedding day and the memories that were so fresh. They peeked into the windows of where their reception was and I can only imagine all the visuals that were running through their mind. A year flies by so quickly and going back to the spot where you said your vows and become a family unit is a great way to almost be transported back to that time.
Why not return to your wedding location on your one year anniversary?! Don’t let too many years fly by and not hold hands and capture your love after your wedding day.
“I find we are all so focused on just the wedding day photos, we forget to capture the life in between! Taking a day out every few years to capture where you are together is such a good way to slow down and take a second to take it all in. Especially around the 1 – 5 year marriage mark when your families might be growing! Time will become more and more valuable. It will also give you & your family prints to flashback on in 10 or 20 years when things have changed and the memories aren’t as vivid. Some of my favorite prints to flip through are of my parents before I was born. Getting a glimpse into their life, where their minds were, what was cool to wear, trendy hair styles, what they were driving. Gives you the feeling you were transported back in time. I recommend getting your favorite photos of yourselves off your phone and back in a frame on the wall. Your future kids and families will thank you later!” – Carly Fuller Photography
