Cozy Catskills Winter Anniversary Session • Emily Kirke Photography

Cozy Catskills Winter Anniversary Session • Emily Kirke Photography

As a wedding blogger, you tend to “fall in love” with a lot of the submissions that come through. All the gorgeous weddings, romantic engagements, beautiful styled shoots… it’s all so pretty. But as a married mom of 3, those tend to seem far-reaching since I’m not in that stage of life. But this - a cozy winter anniversary session, at an Airbnb in the Catskills from Emily Kirke Photography - and I’m completely in love. A little time away… away from the kids and the rush of everyday life, celebrating how far you’ve come and the life you’ve built? Aoife and Taylor captured a moment in their lives that often goes undocumented, and we’re already planning a weekend away to do the same. Enjoy, friends!
