This wasn’t just any anniversary session…Des + Ben are the proud owners of eight alpacas—so naturally, their furry friends had to be included! Taking inspiration from the earth, Natashia Nicole Photography crafted a neutral palette with a boho vibe to complement the scenery (and the alpacas!).
She tells us: Their alpacas live on their property, and Des + Ben treat them as their children. Des even hand-makes products from the alpaca fiber she collects. They wanted a few of their animals to be with them in their anniversary photos…and the florist was all for it and made wreaths for two of them to wear! Everything melded together and felt like it belonged in nature, which is exactly what we wanted.
Ready for ALL the cuteness? Let’s take a walk through the woods:
The Ones Who Stole the Show
How darling are these two?! We adore the Elizabeth Dye gown Des wore and how it complemented the woods—both in color and texture.
Des Schrage at Lash Doll Aesthetics gave Des ~effortless waves~ for days.
Too cute!! A copper arch was crafted for this and we adore how seamlessly it blends into the environment, yet when you focus on it is the perfect way to frame the space.
A snuggle sesh with a furry friend? Yes, please!!
When it came to the florals, Inspired by Nature created an extremely textured bouquet, brimming with dahlias, ranunculus, and tons of greenery.
Can’t get over the wreath that matches the floral crown!
Adding a luxe element, the table was set with scripted pieces from Seniman Calligraphy and golden accents.
Can’t. Stop. Staring!
Happy anniversary, D+B!! Now, what kind of elements would you like to include in an anniversary session? Perhaps your furry friends, a favorite campsite, a camping location, or local diner? We’d love to hear your ideas in the comments below!
