Hi, we're Hunter and Sarah, a husband-and-wife, luxury wedding photography team. We’re also educators, helping other photographers build profitable and sustainable photography businesses.
When Sonia first reached out about capturing a session with her husband Jesse and their dog at Raven’s Roost Overlook, we were absolutely thrilled! After capturing their Surprise Proposal at James Monroe’s Highland almost a year and a half ago, we couldn’t wait to see them again — this time post-elopement! We arrived at the exact same time and were ready to meet their GIANT fluff of a dog, Nieva! We got our fill of snuggles while Sonia and Jesse caught us up on all the changes in their lives – from graduating grad school, to their intimate micro-wedding in St. Louis, to their recent move in which Jesse unfortunately sprained his ankle!
We could see the family dynamic Sonia and Jesse have with Nieva, which means “snow” in Spanish. Sonia cuddled Nieva with as much love as she could muster, and Jesse stood ready with the treats! When Nieva was done with her close-up, we moved to photos of just Sonia and Jesse, and we could instantly see how much they’ve grown together since their proposal! The way they snuggled and looked at each other was full of even more love and joy as when we last saw them. We don’t always get to capture couples so soon after their wedding, and this Anniversary Session was an absolute joy!
We were so happy to see you both again! Even though it had been more than a year since we last saw you two, it felt like we had been together just a few months before. Your kindness in bringing us some chocolate from Missouri was a true insight into how thoughtful you both are. It wasn’t melted, and it was absolutely delicious! We hope that your marriage will continue to thrive and grow as it has this past year, and we hope to see you again soon!
Sarah + Hunter
