Cincinnati Weekend

Spring flirted with us this weekend on my visit to see friends in Cincinnati. 

We browsed the fruits, veggies, and meats of Findlay Market and happened upon the most amazing gelato from Dojo (my flavor was Howard the Duck, a delish creamy mix of duck fat...bourbon…cinnamon).

The visit was specially planned to meet this serene beauty. 

And hug this man, recovering formidably from a stroke thanks be to God. 

This impromptu photo shoot happened. Gorgeous.

And what's a trip to Cincinnati without a pair of these

I miss you already Cincy friends!!!!

Belated Four Year Wedding Anniversary Photos

Pictures from our four year wedding anniversary shoot. 

I know, they're being posted quite behind schedule. But, we haven't taken our fifth year photos yet. So, I think they can slide. 

Speaking of slides....

These pictures were taken at the park a few blocks away from our home.

 All pictures captured by the lovely Beth Wilson. 

Anniversary Tradition

-----{the start}-----

Three years ago on August 2nd, 2008 Zade and I took
 a lot of pictures together.....

 so began the tradition. 
Every anniversary we seek to have a photo shoot taken together in honor of another 365 days enjoyed in the  presence of God and each other.

At our one year wedding anniversary in 2009 we returned to our wedding site and
climbed trees, 
and took pictures.
This is what first sparked the idea of taking a photo shoot every anniversary. 


Our next photo shoot was taken while visiting my sister Sarah and brother-in-law Steve in Tennessee. We took their one year pictures (their anniversary is in August as well) and they took our two! We must have looked hilarious....
lugging all these random props out into a field. 
We had a globe, books, tea cups, and even a coat rack! 

Soon we will be time for our three year pictures and I'm thinking up ideas for a theme!
What are some creative photo shoot ideas you've seen?
