Our New Tradition: Year One

For our anniversary, Jonathon and I wanted to start a tradition. We didn't really want to focus on gift-giving during our anniversary and just keep that for birthdays, Christmas, and special surprises. So, we decided to record each year of our marriage with photos. This year, our theme was picnic, and each following year, we'll pick a new theme//scene to represent us. My hope is to one day have a huge wall filled top to bottom with photos of us as we grow old together. Sentimental much? :)
















I'm sooo happy with how these photos turned out! It took me awhile to find the perfect quilt and picnic basket to complete our little set-up. My talented, amazing little sister took the photographs for us and I edited them using Photoshop. We also used up a roll of film from my fisheye camera, so I'll post those once I get them developed. :)

  1. This was absolutely beautiful! We've been married a little over a month now and I would love to figure out a cute tradition like this that isn't focused around money.

    Love it! :]
