They say that the first year of marriage is the hardest: it’s when you get down to the bare bones of who you are as individuals, and more importantly, as a unit. It’s a year of newlywed bliss and simultaneously some of the absolute silliest arguments you will have with one another—and honestly, I wish more couples would celebrate the one-year mark like Cherie & Scott. If a photoshoot could be a metaphor for Year One itself, their waterside anniversary portrait session with Nikki Nicole Photography would come pretty close: a plan gone awry, a little improv, some patience, and an awesome finish.
From Nikki Nicole Photography:
“[Cherie and Scott] wanted to have some meaningful photos taken for their first wedding anniversary. To personalize the session, we brought along their daughter, Zoey, for some of the photos. As we showed up to our first location choice, we were bombarded with street closings and booth tents – there was an art show on the block that day! With my quick thinking, I took them to a similar park nearby that also happened to be along the beach, and we got to take advantage of the low tide.”
From Cherie & Scott:
“One true thing about love is that it is not easy. There are so many challenges that married couples have to overcome but knowing I have an awesome partner that is my best friend through everything makes it so much easier. Whenever life around us is changing so rapidly, for good or for worse, it is nice to have each other as consistency.”
