Photography sessions are not just for your engagement -- they the perfect way to celebrate and remember all of life's milestones -- big or small. Today I get to share a little glimpse into my hubby and my first anniversary session with Allegro Photography!

We are so happy to be celebrating our first year of marriage and know that we are entering year two as a stronger team!
