To commemorate our first anniversary, Jordan and I wanted to celebrate in a way that would remain special beyond the actual day, so we decided to do a little photo shoot. This also doubled as the engagement shoot we never had--we had some engagements taken last year, but they weren't really "us," so I never loved them.
We really wanted these photos to capture our lives as they are at this specific moment in time, one year in, living in Washington, DC in our first little apartment. We chose a few different locations that were meaningful to us--in our apartment, on our roof, and at a couple of favorite neighborhood spots.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the first two locations plus some random tidbits about us, for fun (written in third person, inexplicably):
He's gotten used to answering burning girl questions like, "If I were a kitten, what would my name be??"
He doesn't like snacking, and she doesn't understand this (for her, it's always chip time).
They once stayed up until 3 a.m. to fight zombies, missing church the next day as a result. (He wisely purchased a purple controller for her so she'd like playing with him.)
He wishes she did her hair more than once a month, but she barely even washes it twice a week.
He gets lost in his own thoughts sometimes, so she regularly finishes his sentences.
They don't really like any of the same things, except, luckily, the important things.
He'll stay fully dressed (including shoes!?) until bedtime. She's in her stretchy pants (or less, letsbehonest) within 30 seconds of walking through the door.
He and his strong opinions accompany her to Bloomingdale's to supervise the testing and purchasing of all lip color products.
She's Pinky. He's Bunny. They're obsessed with each other.
Second batch of anniversary photos here!
