About a year after our wedding we had my best friend Amber (Amber Sycz Photography) take some portraits of us for our web site when we went down to my hometown for a visit. We dressed all businessey so we would have a professional look for our bio page and did the session at a nearby business park (just a coincidence, it was a cute Key West-looking area). The pictures turned out so cute and I had a lot of fun getting dressed up and being in front of the camera for a change.
When our 2nd anniversary rolled around it wasn't convenient to see Amber again so we hired another (local) husband and wife team, Kara and Jeremy from Kara Pennington Photography to shoot our portraits. We just focused on us which made them more of an anniversary tradition. The pictures turned out beautiful - I used them all over facebook and our web sites.
This year Amber came to St. Augustine for a friends wedding a few weeks ago and we convinced her to take some time out of her vacation to do some portraits of us again. Not only did we want pictures but she did too. She and her husband had their first baby 9 months ago and it was time to do some family portraits with their handsome little boy. Jay also filmed the session with his new Nikon D300s - video coming soon (soon-ish). Amber's birthday is coming up on July 4th and I am hoping it will be done in time for that... shhh, don't tell her though.
So the tradition lives on - the Neumarks would be proud (Jay's parents); they love traditions. We had portraits done for our 3rd anniversary. This year we decided to incorporate our new house since it has been such a big part of our lives the past several months. It's 100 years old and we have been doing lots of renovations before we move in! We have a lot of life and love ahead of us in this house - and we can't wait to get started.
