Jummy + Chris's Ten Year Wedding Anniversary at Eisenhower State Park
I met Jummy thru a friend at a boat party. We immediately clicked, so when she mentioned in conversation that her 10 year wedding anniversary was coming up, I had to highly -highly- HIGHLY - encourage photos to celebrate.
Jummy and Chris are avid travelers and also share a love for national parks and nature, so they chose to have an outdoorsy anniversary shoot. They were traveling to Zion earlier in the year, but my traveling calendar didn't work out to meet there, but luckily Texas is such a large state with such a diverse eco system, from desert to forest, to mountains, to swampy lakes, that if you are willing to drive a few hours, you can experience a lot.
We met at Eisenhower Park, a Texas state park that overlooks Lake Texoma and the state of Oklahoma . I had been there once and loves the mix of wooded areas and rocky beaches.
Jummy and Chris didn't mind getting a little dirty, even in their fancy outfits. We hiked a bit, we explored the beach, we listened to music and danced, and ended the day at Fossil Ridge Drive enjoying sunset. It was a really fun way to celebrate their anniversary and create memories.
Does it mean you have to wait until year 10 to take anniversary photos? Nope, not at all, there is no magic number to celebrate. Sometimes the first year of marriage is tough, and you want to celebrate getting thru it together. Or maybe that first year felt like 12 months of honeymoon and you want to celebrate that. Or Maybe year 3 is special to your marriage.
I mean, if you have the budget, and a partner who loves photos, TAKE PHOTOS EVERY ANNIVERSARY :) I would, but then my husband might leave me 'cause he doesn't love photos like I do :) Marriage is compromise, right?
Happy Anniversary Jummy and Chris !!!
