MARRIED // Rebecca + Matthew’s Rose Garden Anniversary Session

filed in

Can I tell you guys a secret? *Whispers* You don’t have to be an ENP Bride and Groom to be an ENP Couple 😉 Rebecca and Matthew are officially living proof. Rebecca found me online through a quick Google search, but I think I was a little luckier than just that. These two got married a little more than a year and a half ago in New York. They’re now living in NoVa rocking their law careers. We met at Bon Air Memorial Rose Garden to celebrate their two-year anniversary with a garden-themed portrait session!

If I have ever regretted not knowing an ENP Couple sooner, it’s Rebecca and Matthew. They told me about their beautiful wedding day, and it only made their anniversary session location feel all too perfect. Since their session was the end of May, the garden was in FULL bloom for these two. It felt full circle after learning their wedding flowers were roses!! How perfect was that happy accident?! Rebecca even wore the same shoes she wore when she walked down the aisle (Badgley Mischka, too!!! One of my faves). When she told me that, I just had to borrow them for a detail shot.

To put the cherry on top, we’re both rose gold lovers. I got to photograph her beautiful rose gold wedding rings while showing off my own rose gold bling and exchanging proposal stories.

Needless to say, we hit it off well and got some gorgeous portraits in the meantime. I just love when sessions become more like hanging out with friends than just pointing a camera at people. The connection between me and my clients is that secret ingredient that turns a pretty session into a beautiful one. And it sure can’t hurt to have such photogenic clients as well.

Rebecca and Matthew, I hope you enjoy these portraits for years to come. I can’t wait for the next opportunity to hang out again, and I’m excited for what year two of marriage has in store for you two!

The rose gold Badgelys!! *heart eyes*
Rebecca you are just STUNNING, girl!
