In case it was unclear, working with and photographing couples is my absolute favorite. Weddings and wedding days are our bread and butter, but couple's portraits are, let's say, the jam. Or possibly the cinnamon sugar?

Either way, this is not an engagement session. It kind of looks like an engagement session, it acts a bit like an engagement session in that we're prepping for an event in the upcoming months, but no: Amanda & Chip are already married, and have been for almost 20 years. They are planning a big vow renewal celebration that will look like a wedding—the wedding, in fact, full of nerdiness and colorful joy that they did not get to plan for themselves two decades ago. (As a bit of a teaser: science museum, cosplay, Thanos officiating the ceremony. I KNOW.)

There's a warm and easy sense of comfort between couples who have been together for as long as Amanda & Chip have. It shines through in how they touch and hold each other, how they look at each other, how they threaten to throw each other into a water feature on a cold November day. These two were super fun, and their session made me even more excited for their March celebration. Enjoy a selection of my favorites below!
