Hot Air Balloon Anniversary Trip

I think this might be the cutest anniversary session I’ve seen! To celebrate their first anniversary, Ngoc + Albert asked Wilmarose of Lovely Jubilee to style a fun anniversary shoot for them. Wilmarose wrote up a little short story about this adventure and hired Jen Simpson to illustrate a story book for the happy couple. She then did all the shopping and pulled together everything for this darling shoot. Then it was off on their hot air balloon adventure – only one problem – they were both scared of heights!! Well, turned out this was the perfect time to conquer that fear together. :) They hired their friend (and amazing photographer) Caroline Tran to photograph their adventure. Now they have their storybook and photos to remember this fun adventure and their first anniversary. Congrats to Ngoc + Albert!
