We love the idea of a Day After session – and this one is so fun! Day After sessions are perfect if you didn’t get enough portraits on your wedding day, or maybe you weren’t happy with you wedding photos. This is a great chance to put back on your wedding attire and get some great photos of the two of you – and have some fun with it! I love that Amanda + Nate went with some fun inspiration for their shoot also – Wes Anderson meets camping in a teepee! Love. Gorgeous photos by Jasmine Star, styling and a pretty bouquet by Jesi Haack and makeup by Melina Ruiz.
And love this great marriage advice from the newlyweds…
“Take time to be present together. As a couple that works from home together, this is especially important for us to remember. We can’t just say we’re going to have a date night and then proceed to sit on the couch working from our laptops as a movie plays…we need to completely set things aside and be totally present with one another. I think it’s good to frequently ask each other how you are doing. It’s a simple question, but sometimes when you ask you find out that you had no clue your partner was even feeling a certain way. As cheesy as it sounds, make time to snuggle. 5 minutes of daily snuggling should be mandatory! ;) Don’t stop being silly with one another…ever. Laughter is so important. And lastly, always remember how lucky you are that you got to marry your best friend. (These last 2 sentences are Nate’s contribution. He’s a man of few words…but a few heart-melting words).”
Isn’t her bouquet by Jesi Haack so fun?! If you love it, we are sharing a similar bouquet DIY later today!
Can you believe Amanda made her own dress??! Gorgeous…
