Happy First Year Wedding Anniversary Ekua + Corey!

If you think you may have seen Corey and Ekua before, wellll you could be right! I’ve had the privilege of photographing their engagement session, bridals, and wedding day.  Fortunately they love being on the other side of my camera as much as I enjoy photographing this sweet genuine couple!   I was thrilled when they told me their plans to schedule a portrait session for their first year anniversary!  Whoohoo!!  Let’s all raise a glass to one year of bliss, and a lifetime to go! :)

When Ekua mentioned wanting to wear her wedding dress, I wholeheartedly endorsed that notion. I mean, who wouldn't want to be able to rock such a fabulous Terry Costa dress more than once??  

e thought it might be fun to stage a little scene in the kitchen of their downtown Dallas loft, so we had some fun there first.

Next we moved to the rooftop patio where an intimate table for two was set, complete with bubbly and a first year wedding anniversary cake from Opulent Cakes in Colleyville.

These adorable little blue birds were part of the display box for the sand ceremony Ekua and Corey did on their wedding day.

Given my love of dusk portraits and urban settings; that kind of makes this whole next series of photos some kind of magical.

Gorgeous couple in love, downtown Dallas skyline, could you ask for more??

Before the shoot concluded, they wanted to get some photos in a different outfit. So off they dashed to “throw something together right quick.” Um, can we acknowledge their amazing sense of style and fashion for a minute?? I need some of their fashion sense in my life!!

Ekua and Corey, I am so glad that I can call you both friends. Congratulations on year one, may this be the first of many, many anniversaries!!
