Something special is coming up in a week in the Hamilton household. Our 2nd anniversary! This year we are celebrating it by staying in our new home, and FINALLY getting our anniversary cake from Fluffy Thoughts! Seriously, Andrew and I are obsessed with our wedding cake, but I’ll get into that later. :-p This “Wedding Wednesday” and throughout the week I’m not showcasing weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing, but showcasing moments of our wedding and our relationship. I don’t really share too much of our lives and our relationship, but I want to share what makes me happy and why photographs mean so much to me, even in the everyday life of a photographer.
Taken by the Wonderful Michele of PinkleToes Photography on our 1st wedding Anniversary!
Last year we had the pleasure to attend a college friend’s wedding in Denton, Tx. The day fell a few days right before our first anniversary, so we decided to road trip through Texas from Dallas -> Austin -> Houston. We went to both MLB baseball stadiums, had some of the best food including Salt Lick BBQ, and enjoying what Texas had to offer. One of the best moments during the trip was we had our First anniversary session with a friend/mentor/awesome photographer Michele of PinkleToes Photography! I always wanted to do a trash the dress session and I sure did it! The photos from the session were wonderful and finally I’m able to get around to print and hang some of our favorites from that day. My favorite thing that Michele gave us was a ornament frame with a photo of us in it.

I love these things! They are perfect not only for the holidays, but to hang your memories in limited space. I have a bunch in our house, my office at work and in our kitchen on our fridge. The one Michele gave us is hanging at my work station at work. I can’t tell you how many times this frame will catch my eye and I’ll take a few seconds to stare at the photograph of my husband and I. It just makes me smile! It reminds me how grateful I am to have found my partner for life and the loving, funny and adventurous memories we have already created together. Those memories and excitement for our future all comes from that one printed photograph. I believe it’s important to have photos of those you love at your place of work, or somewhere in the house so when times at rough at work or a home, you have that reminder of those memories and gives you joy. A great reminder to be thankful for the memories we have had and the ones to come.
To celebrate Andrew and I’s upcoming anniversary, I will be giving TWO OB ornament frames (one for each person) for every collection purchase towards an anniversary session. If you have your wedding, dating or partnership anniversary coming up or just recently passed; or just want to celebrate your love for one another, this is a perfect way not only to celebrate but to capture new memories and to showcase them at work or home! To redeem: Book your couples session and pick your Collection by July 11th for a 2014 or 2015 session with Erica Abbey Photography.
*All OB ornament frames will be either Silver or dark gray. To book and for more information click on the Contact tab above or email Erica at Erica@ericaabbeyphotography.com. To see our couples portfolio, click HERE*
Emily and Morgan are such a fun couple! When they graciously donated their time to help me with my iphone session experiment I knew they were perfect for this. They are goofy, artsy and love to be different, which I adore about them. We met up at a park near my house one weekend morning and had some fun on the playground before exploring the wonderful grounds.E and M, thank you again for driving up to my neck of the woods and being patience with me as I learn to figure out my process.
Enjoy some of my favorites from Emily and Morgan’s art iphoneography session!
