It’s always so fun getting to photograph fellow photographers.  I’ve known Astrid through Instagram for a while and have always admired her work, so it was an honor when she reached out to me about doing a one-year anniversary session with her and her husband AJ.  This was one of the most fun and inspiring sessions I’ve done in the Midwest, but also one of the most physically challenging.  It was hot, it was humid and the bugs were just on top of us the whole time as we traversed their family’s beautiful, wild and rugged land.  Throughout the course of a session you really get to know people and the physical conditions didn’t bother these two one bit.  They were lighthearted and lost in each other the whole time.  They were bigger to each other than any of the challenges.  This is what love looks like.  Happy anniversary to this wonderful pair!
