I am proud to show you some part of a very personal photoshoot,
the 40th Wedding Anniversary of my Parents.
I had the honor to photograph many Couples on their Wedding Anniversaries, from the very 1st all the way to the 50th. Each time it was different, sometimes it was a photo session of the Two of Them, sometimes it was a Surprise Wedding Anniversary for Her (yeah, all prepared by Him) or as a Surprise to all attending Guests (yeah, they were told it is a Birthday Party), but quite often it looked like a second Wedding, with a Wedding Dress, flowers, guests, venue rental with dinner, music, and an Official in order to renew the vowes. Therefore this contagious happiness, tears of joy and celebration of LOVE brought me finally into an idea of doing it for my own Parents!
It was the longest planned photoshoot in my life! Why? Because I know what kind of props my Parents still own from their Wedding and I wanted to use it all in order to bring back some memories but also to recreate a Wedding photograph they took in a studio (but this will be in another post). So don’t ask how many dusty boxes we had to open to find it all. I also created some props myself.
Real props used (for a photo session part two) from a Wedding Day:
Wedding Rings, an Engagement Ring, a Wedding Invitation, a crystal carafe (wedding gift), and a few Wedding pictures from a studio.
Props made or founded by me:
The gold champagne bottle, flowers (I recreated Wedding Bouquet), the suitcase with pictures, books and a wall calendar from the year they said ‘I do!’, a basket with fruits and strawberries, big ball, little fireworks and smoke flares.
What went wrong?
In a field, we were surrounded by hundreds of mosquitos. That is why we did not take many planned pictures… so we had to finish the photo session in the garden. It was chaotic, you can’t imagine! Dad wasn’t thrilled 😉 Haha!
This is a second part of the photo session, the first part was taken in By Niki Photography Studio, where I recreated Wedding photographs taken 40 years earlier.
We did it a few months after the actual Wedding Anniversary day.
I encourage you to gift your Parents / Grandparents with such a priceless photo session. Already married? Great, plan it to yourself!
Trust me this is worth the effort and so much fun, look at my Dad with smoke flare! Ha ha! 😉
This is absolutely the best Family Souvenir we have.
Here you can see a First Wedding Anniversary of one lovely Couple, it is always such a LOVE Celebration and it doesn’t matter if this is a First or a 40th.
