Thursday was a blast with Shannon and Shannon. Yes, two Shannons! These two are two of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. So in love and so down to earth! The two are celebrating 13 years of marriage and took a mini-vacation to Western, North Carolina for some rest and relaxation! This Asheville Anniversary Session was one of our favorites.
Shannon and Shannon met in the summer of 2004. After a long phone conversation at the urging of his brother, the two discovered they had the same first and middle names in common and their birthdays are only four days apart. Obviously, they are destined to be together. So, after a lunch date to the movies, they were inseparable and fell in love. Married in April of 2006 after a seven-month engagement, on the beach in Destin, Florida. Shannon’s girls were in the wedding and in June of 2007 their son, Hayden was born, who also carries the middle name, Lee.
Marriage is not always cupcakes and roses, but then again there can be no flowers without the rain, and growth always requires change. These two have endured hard times together that have strengthened their marriage. The Lord has walked them through many trials and continues to teach them his love.
Shannon says: “I am a blessed and grateful man for this woman God blessed me with. She is the most beautiful, exciting woman and I love her beyond words. It’s hard to believe that we have already celebrated thirteen years of marriage and fifteen years together. We are closer now than ever and we strive to live by the Lord’s words in I Corinthians 13.”
Enjoy some of our favorite images from their session. Here’s to many more years together.
