When Rhiannon first contacted me about doing an anniversary session for her and her husband Andrew, she told me that she had initially come across my work when she was planning her wedding last year. They ended up getting married in Florida at a venue that only allowed them to use certain vendors, but she kept my website bookmarked for the future. Fast forward to this year…. Andrew wasn’t too keen on getting his photo taken, so Rhiannon sneakily got him to participate by asking for the session for her birthday. And apparently he just couldn’t say no. ;)
We decided to meet up at the Birmingham Zoo on a Friday afternoon. It was my first time there, and I LOVED it! They’ve undergone a lot of changes in the past few years, and it felt very Animal Kingdom-esque. Plus, since there had been a threat of rain all day, the park was practically empty, which made it that much more fun. I love how the environment made the shoot feel so light-hearted, too. It was fun to act like kids for a couple of hours. And snuggling monkeys really just make everything better. :)
Thank you guys so much for allowing me to document this stage of your journey together! I had a blast!
