I am a big believer in having your photo taken professionally every year or at least every few years, even if you aren’t engaged, having a wedding or trying to get your kids to sit still for a family portrait. Anniversaries are a great excuse to put on some fancy clothes and spend some time together in front of the camera. Not only are anniversary sessions great for holiday cards and social media profile photos, they are a great way to continue documenting the evolution of your relationship. I also love how married couples seem to have the most laid-back, relaxed chemistry with one another!
Cortney and Nick decided to go to Galveston Island to take some photos for their anniversary and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful fall day! There was a wedding happening that day at Kempner Park near Garten Verein where we wanted to start, so instead we improvised by taking some photos on the sidewalk nearby where there was great light. Then we headed down to the beach to take some photos near the Pleasure Pier until sunset.
