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!

From bold color palette and service dress, to the historic church and guest appearance of their sweet puppy, Daisy, we can’t stop swooning!
