Our Anniversary Gift for Each Other

Happy Monday, friends!

Can we just say that we’re over-the-moon excited?! This is our first blog post to EVER go up while we’re on a different CONTINENT! Ahh! It still doesn’t feel real! We’ve been in Ireland the last two days (more on that coming soon!) and it’s even more beautiful than we imagined. Our weekend was one for the books and we can’t wait to share all of our photos with you! Don’t forget that if you want to keep up with our trip in real time, you can always follow along on Instagram at @amy_demos and @jordan_demos to tag along on all of our adventures! We’d love to connect with you there!

We’re celebrating five years of marriage this summer, so this trip is really special to us. Our marriage is the greatest blessing of our life, and even when we don’t think it’s possible, every year together just gets even better. The photographs that we have of each year of our relationship are so precious to us, and that’s why we love doing anniversary sessions for other couples, and why we make it a priority to get our own anniversary photos taken every year. As soon as we started planning this trip, we knew we wanted our five year anniversary photos to be in Europe, but we didn’t know where to start! We have photographers we know and love all over the country, but the world? That’s another story.

Or so we thought!

Enter Annamarie Akins.

Annamarie is an extremely talented photographer based in Virginia, and she and her sweet husband, Ryan (we call him Hercules, because he’s super buff), have become personal friends who we love dearly. We clicked instantly at the Connect Marriage Retreat in Georgia this spring, and they even did photos for us while we were there that we absolutely love! We’ve been dying for an excuse to see them again, so when we discovered that we were both planning trips to Europe around the same time, we did whatever we had to do to make sure we could get in front of Annamarie’s camera again! We couldn’t be more excited to share that Annamarie will be shooting our anniversary session in… wait for it… wait for it… VENICE!! What?! Is that real life?! Venice!! We die. We have it scheduled right at the end of our trip, and can’t wait to share them with you! We feel SO blessed to have her!

We share so many core beliefs with Annmarie and Ryan, and just like us, they’re passionate about preserving a couple’s relationship to help create a legacy of love for each couple they work with. They also believe that this extends far beyond the wedding day, and that each year of marriage is something to celebrate.

We couldn’t agree more.

Right before we left for our trip, the sweetest surprise showed up on our doorstep that had us feeling like giddy children. As if an anniversary session in Venice wasn’t enough, Annamarie sent us a gift that couldn’t have been any more sweet or thoughtful. It was so fun to get this package in the mail, and we can’t wait to fill our new picture frame with a photo from our upcoming session. We love that Annamarie cares so deeply about marriages. The theme of her gift is, “The best is yet to be…”

We couldn’t agree more.
