This girl is an inspiration to me not only is she an amazing photographer but Anny is also a great friend with one amazing heart of gold as well! So when she reached out to me to take her and her husbands one year wedding anniversary pictures I was so honored. Anny & Adam’s Point Reyes anniversary session!
“In 2011, I met Adam through my cousin, Angel (from my dad’s side because I have two Angel’s in my family. I can thank her for introducing me to my future husband). We worked on music together, along with a few other friends. He played the instruments and I sang. It wasn’t loved at first sight or anything mushy gushy like that but there was always something alluring about Adam’s demeanor and personality. He had vibrant, dyed, red hair at the time (he’s naturally dirty blonde) and I enjoyed his company whenever he was around.
It wasn’t until 2013 when we unquestionably became good friends and things started to unravel from there. At this point in time, I had been in denial about having a major crush on him but it was obvious that your girl was putting the moves on this guy. I would bring him homemade egg rolls and text him randomly about my weird dreams. Adam was trying to avoid me but you know, love wins in the end. We always joked that I stalked him into liking me but honestly, I knew he kind of liked me too. He had his guard up but I brought that down with delicious food.
Fast forward to 2016, we had our three-year anniversary shoot with my best gal pal, Jenna DeNatale. I had a feeling he was going to propose but didn’t think too much of it. It wasn’t until the end of our shoot when Adam jokingly asked: “What if I asked you to marry me right now?” I thought he was playing as we would joke often. I replied back with laughter “Only if you have a ring!” and started to walk away. At that moment, he grabbed my arm and I looked down to see the most gorgeous Sapphire ring. (It belonged to his great grandma and we both shared the same birthstone so that was amazing and sentimental. I loved it!) He said “But I do have a ring” and I started bawling ugly happy tears while he hugged me. I responded, “Are you for real?!” “What!?” and laughed some more. The whole moment was hilarious because Jenna was scrambling to take photos as she had no idea what was happening. I’m so happy we have those photos to look back upon.”
