Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

Aidan and Destiny’s Anniversary Session Chattanooga, TN, was beautiful and a long time coming. I have known Aidan and Destiny for well over a year now. We became instant friends, and this was a planned session for a while. When Aidan and Destiny approached me to shoot some anniversary portraits, the original plan was to shoot them at Boneyard Beach in Jacksonville, FL.Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

Due to COVID, I wasn’t able to get down to Florida to shoot the session, but since I knew we would be in Chattanooga together for the WLMA meet up, I figured why not shoot while we are there. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

The vision was to wear all black and bring some elegance to the session. Destiny wanted a beautiful big dress, which I am so glad she did because she looked beautiful. The thing with switching to Chattanooga, none of us knew where the best place was to shoot. Until we drove home from the styled session the day before. We were on the highway, and I saw this amazing abandoned warehouse covered in graffiti.Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

This is a dream location for most photographers because we don’t have places like this to shoot at all the time, so when we find them, we make sure we take advantage of shooting there. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

The session turned from just me, Aidan, and Destiny to having all our friends come along a shoot the session. We had a few different shooting styles and a few different editing styles. It was really cool to see how we all work together, shoot from the same place but at different angles.

When we all finished and delivered the images to Aidan and Destiny, it was cool to see everyone’s final results.

So back to the location! This location had a lot to offer, and I knew that we could have shot for hours at this location if we really wanted to. I think we explored only about 25% of this location, and we had a ton of images. Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

We really had a wonderful time working with Destiny and Aidan for their anniversary session, and this was the best place to shoot their session.

I am honored to collaborate with other talented creatives to create some beautiful images. I am excited to see how these two grow as a couple and where life takes them! Thank you, Aidan and Destiny, for allowing us to capture your anniversary session!Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

A LITTLE Q&A FOR THE BRIDE & GROOM

HOW DID YOU MEET?!

“We met at Destiny’s Dance party. Aidan had crashed it, and they met for the first time there. As the night progressed, Aidan finally danced with Destiny and found out how bad he was at it! The two of them continued to chat, and from there, the rest was history.”

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST DATE!

“Our first date was at a mini-golf course. We spent the entire evening doing put-put & go-kart racing. Lots of jokes and inside jokes were created that night. Afterward, we went to Ross to do Destiny’s favorite past time. Shopping! She created a game that we both had to find an outfit to wear, but you can only spend $20 in total! It was to either improve your current or create an entirely new outfit if possible.” Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

WHAT MADE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH ONE ANOTHER?!

“We believe our differences are what made us fall in love with each other. Parts of Aidan’s caring and emotional personality, Destiny does not have. But the things that Aidan lacks in logical thinking, and not so much the emotional aspects of things, between those we find a perfect balance with each other.”

TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL!

“We just agreed to get married. There wasn’t a big huge proposal. We got married on October 18, 2019.”

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT EACH OTHER?!

“Aidan is a complete goofball. I find him really fun and funny to be around, and it always brings joy to my life.”

HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A COUPLE SINCE YOU STARTED DATING?

“Together, because of how different we are, we’ve grown in personality as well as being. Being able to see what each other lacks, and then also seeing each other’s strengths as well, we have been able to learn a lot about love, respect, and become better people because of it.”

WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LOVED BY YOUR PARTNER?!

Aidan: “When destiny comes home from a long day at work, she’s tired or wants to do other things, but she still goes out of her way to do things for me or spend time for me, that’s when I feel most loved by her.”

“I’ve always known she’s a self-sacrificing person, but being her husband and knowing her daily routine and schedule, I know how much it takes for her to do something for others, so I value that part of her personality the most.” Anniversary Session Chattanooga TN

Destiny: “I feel most loved by Aidan when he gives me big huggles.”
