Couple Celebrates 40th Anniversary in Colonial Williamsburg with Family

February 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

A few months ago I was contacted by a lovely young woman telling me about her family's plans to celebrate her parents 40th Wedding Anniversary in Colonial Williamsburg. They were looking for a photographer to do a photo session with the family during the weekend they were spending here. Thrilled to be part of their celebration, we decided on a late afternoon session just before their dinner reservations at Fat Canaray in Merchants Square

We had an absolutely gorgeous evening.  Let me tell you, they were dressed to impress!

They were such a sweet, charming family and we had a lot of fun walking around Colonial Williamsburg taking photos.  Mother-and daughters-in Colonial-Williamsburg-GardensMother-and daughters-in Colonial-Williamsburg-Gardens

A beautiful mother and her beautiful daughters. But we can't leave out the boys...they just look so dapper.

This is one of my favorite little corners of CW to take photos. Their dress colors look AMAZING against the beautiful green here.

One of the fun things about Colonial Williamsburg is that there is beautiful scenery around every corner.

This image makes me want an updated, dressed-up photo with my Dad and Sister! 


40 years of marriage looks pretty darn good! 


After a really fun-natured photo session, they headed off to dinner. I want to mention that having not been to the Fat Canary yet since moving to Williamsburg, I asked them to let me know how it was. A few days later I got an email with this: 

"Just wanted to let you know that I STRONGLY suggest Fat Canary!  Our server was a delight.  They had a menu signed by all the waitstaff for my parents, they put us at a great table, and most importantly - the food was outstanding.  Superb. I hope you get a chance to celebrate there sometime!"

So there you go! It doesn't get any better than that!

I am so glad that I got to provide them beautiful memories of what was clearly a very meaningful evening. I would love to provide you with beautiful memories like these too! Contact me today and let's plan an unforgettable  photo session for YOUR family!
