I wanted to surprise my husband because he was going to be away for Army Training and miss our FIRST wedding anniversary. I wanted it to be a good one. I love the idea of giving each other the "traditional" gifts for each year's anniversary. The first year is "paper", and so I went and secretly had photographs done for him and presented the printed paper copies to him, the week before he left.
I have never felt more beautiful then Shannon at PeoplePaperPrints photography made me look. These photos I will love to look back on years after we are wrinkled and gray-haired.
