These photos were actually taken back in June this year. It’s my brother and his wife, April. I had this fun idea of doing an anniversary session for them. April could still fit in her wedding dress so I contacted All About Designs Cakes by Lori Smith about making a cake. She not only made one amazing cake but she made us TWO. Her cakes are super amazing. Since I found her, I use her for every cake occasion. I even make up cake occasions because sometimes a girl just needs some tasty cake 😉 The bouquets and flowers on the cakes were by Michael Trenholm Floral Designs and they were fabulous. I shot a wedding last year where he designed the bouquet and it had hen and chicks in it. I thought that was the coolest. We done the session on my parents’ farm, Cave Hill Farm. If you’re one of my regular clients, you’ve probably had at least one session here because it’s amazing. Most of my boudoir sessions are actually taken in this exact spot. It’s such a pretty little cove. The cake stands are from my parents etsy store, Cave Hill Designs. They make some seriously cool stuff like lemonade stands and signs for your weddings. Check them out. If you’re local, you can pick up your products from them and save yourself some shipping!
It actually rained ALL DAY the day of this session. I didn’t think we were going to be able to do it. Luckily, the rain decided to stop right before we went to set up. My friends, Nikki and Melanie, came to help set up. They worked for free cake. It’s one of the reasons we are friends. We will work for food. Haha!
April was really excited for a few of the photos because she got photos from our session that she didn’t get on her wedding day. I’m really glad I could get her some pretty dress and ring shots.
