theresa + jay (anniversary shoot!)

Filed in portraits, rock the dress shot by on at

Last July, we shot Jay and Theresa’s epic wedding. It’s incredibly hard to believe that a whole year (and a few months) has gone by since then, but holy crap, it has. Their wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and I can still remember it like it was yesterday. To commemorate their first anniversary, this awesome couple wanted some updated photos for their collection!

Originally, we were just going to do a regular shoot, but at the last second, Theresa decided to pull the ‘ol wedding gown out of storage, and make it a “rock the dress” shoot. I was, of course, more than happy with this turn of events. :)

We started out over by the Erie County Fair, where there are some fantastic red barn-ish buildings that I love.

Probably my fave…LOVE it!

Then, T + J switched over to their bride and groom attire, and they looked just as lovely as they did last year.  :)
