I first met Brittany Sidwell of Brittany Sidwell Photography last spring when I was searching for a photographer to do a boudoir shoot for me. I had wanted to do one for a long time, but I hadn’t taken the plunge. Even before we met, her correspondence made it feel like we were great friends such that on the day of, I felt so comfortable. I knew immediately that I wanted to have our one year wedding anniversary photos taken by her. I am blown away by how amazing they are! She captured Matt and my personalities so well! We just cut up, laughed A TON, and had a blast. I think it really shows in all of our photos. I’m going to share a number of them, but it’s hard to choose favorites. <3 A huge shout-out to Tatyana Wilcox of Tatyana Wilcox Makeup for my gorgeous makeup. I had a cold, but she worked her magic and hid it completely! She was the makeup artist for my wedding, and I’m so glad I met her.
We didn’t plan much because I just wanted it to be natural. All I new that I had to include was my wedding TOMS, us trying our one year old frozen wedding cake, and sipping champagne. The cake was actually really good!
Our personalized “Mr.” and “Mrs.” dessert forks.
As always, Matt finished eating before me. 😉
I found a cute leaf and put it into Matt’s shirt for fun. 🙂 That sunlight <3
This was Matt’s idea! I love how he gets into our sessions. He’s such a natural in front of the camera!
My gorgeous rings nestled in his handsome wedding band. We used my grandmother’s China that we also used at the wedding. I wanted to include little elements throughout.
We stumbled upon this really neat green building and had to take some photos. The foliage wasn’t quite as vibrant as it is now, but it still really came through in our photos!
Brittany told Matt to whisper something in my ear, and man this was hilarious! I loved this. I was almost crying from laughing so hard.
Love black and white <3
The only thing I bought for this shoot was my cardigan. Everything else I wanted to just be us and not overly thought-out. I so loved the colors!
On a whim, I decided to jump on Matt’s back, and I loved the series of photos Brittany captured! If you haven’t noticed by now, I was cheesin’ and laughing throughout our time together. It was the best.
This was the best gift we could’ve given to each other, and I’m beyond grateful I have these to now cherish. Check out Brittany’s work, and if you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend you book with her!!
