If you’ve been married only one month, one day, or one minute you know that marriage is something to be celebrated. Marriage is a combination of a bunch of small choices to put another person before yourself – which is hard. It takes intentionality and patience which is why it’s important to celebrate.

Katie and Dustin wanted to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary with a spring photo session at Waneka Lake in Lafayette, CO. They brought their Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Sage, that they have had for seven years since she was a puppy along to include in some pictures. I loved Katie’s idea to celebrate their marriage year after year by taking a picture of them holding one of their original wedding photos of them joyously walking back down the aisle after “I Do’s”. Katie and Dustin danced to “Forever and Ever Amen” by Randy Travis for their first dance a year ago and have a sweet sign to remind them of that evening.

As we walked through fields and by old barns, we ended their anniversary photo session with a view of Waneka Lake and the sun setting over the mountains. I am wishing Katie and Dustin the happiest one year anniversary and I hope you all enjoy this gorgeous session!
