I can’t believe it’s been one year. Since we’ve been engaged, we’ve welcomed two nieces and a nephew, we got married, Christian interviewed for residencies in 14 locations across the United States (you can read about that here) and graduated medical school, we packed up our entire lives, moved across the country and both started new jobs and our marriage together.
All of that to say, this year felt pretty easy and a whole lot of fun! Christian and I have learned so much about each other and ourselves in the almost seven years we’ve been together, and he’s truly like my other half. We’ve been through so much together and he’s my constant, my rock, my security blanket, my home.
I wanted to have some photos taken to capture where this year has brought us. I wanted to have some memories of the beginning of our marriage in this beautiful new place we call home and was so thrilled when he was onboard with the idea! The poor guy works around the clock and with only four days off a month, spending one of them hopping rocks in front of a photographer was such a special act of service (my love language) and I am so thankful. More cheesy bragging on this guy I’m lucky enough to call my husband here.
I was honored to have the beautiful and talented Breanna Holderby capture these photos in Malibu. She is such a delight to work with and if you’re in the LA area, I couldn’t recommend her enough! You can also check out her blog here.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for photos from our anniversary trip to Santa Barbara and the wedding cake topper that made its way all the way from Mississippi to be eaten on our one year anniversary. Do any of you married ladies out there have advice for how to stretch the newlywed phase for more than a year? I would love to hear!
Thanks for being a part of this journey with us. XO –
