It’s so sweet to hear when wedding photographers reunite with their couples years down the line! Photographing someone’s wedding is always such a great honor, to be entrusted with documenting so monumental a day in the endless sunrises and sunsets of their beautiful forever. You have the pleasure of experiencing their love at the smitten threshold of “’til death do us part”, and so meeting again becomes that much sweeter—seeing the same loving souls, now with years of understanding and sacrifice and wonder swimming within their eyes. Our hearts swell with joy at featuring yet another anniversary session, only this time Gabriela Ines Photography took it one step further, using the opportunity to inject a lot of pretty into this happy little reunion!
“I shot Bogdan and Yulia’s wedding 3 years ago and had the opportunity to set up a small styled wedding shoot on the wonderful Oregon coast. Per usual, the coast greeted us with clouds and rain the day prior to this anniversary session, but we were greeted with breaks in the clouds and glorious sunshine on the day of. Ania Bridal offered the perfect dress by Watters that flowed in sync with the ocean waves of the day. The bouquet provided by Ali B Designs fit effortlessly with the background and the salty fresh ocean. It was a simple shoot but full of love and affection as Bogdan and Yulia celebrate 3 precious years of marriage.”
