Adleigh and Chace are celebrating one year of marriage this May and I was so honored to capture it all on film during their Lincoln Memorial anniversary session. I knew from the moment Adleigh showed me her two dresses for the shoot that it was going to be one for the books and I was SO right! These two were such naturals in front of the camera that we rolled through location after location with ease. I had such a blast getting to know these two and hear all about what year one of marriage was like for them. They were married in Iowa, where Adleigh and her family lived at the time. Chace got a new job in Washington, DC and headed out here after not long after saying “I do.” Meanwhile, Adleigh wrapped up selling their home and followed him to their new city shortly after. I don’t know about you, but moving, for me, is such a huge stressor and we just went 30 minutes down the road when we bought our home! I can’t imagine getting married, selling one home, moving into another, AND starting a new job — all within a few months! These two have clearly tested the strength of their bond and it is nothing short of incredible, to say the least. They overcame so many stressors together and I’m certain are a stronger couple because of it.
But year one was just the beginning; it turns out year two is going to bring just as much excitement for Adleigh and Chace! They have several trips planned throughout the Caribbean and to Cuba, Croatia, and Greece and that’s just for this upcoming summer! They will, of course, be heading back and forth to visit family as well and while they love calling DC home and exploring a new city with one another, hope to head back to the mid-west some day in the future. I can’t wait to follow your journies this summer and will live vicariously through those amazing trips!
